The Jets, who have been incredibly active in free agency, are adding a game-changing running back to the fold: free agent RB Le'Veon Bell.
The 27-year-old Bell, who sat out the entire 2018 season after refusing to sign the franchise tag, agreed to a four-year, $52.5 million deal, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed, with a max of $61 million and $35 million guaranted, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Bell confirmed that he will be heading to New York with a tweet.

He was also being pursued by the Dolphins, Raiders, 49ers, and Bears.
The Jets' free agent splurging (they entered the free agency period with the second-most cap space in the NFL) hasn't been limited to the offense, with the team also locking in linebacker C.J. Mosley
Gang Green also made an enormous move over the weekend, agreeing to a trade with the Raiders that will bring offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele to New York.
