Jets safety Jamal Adams has not been shy about his recruiting efforts for Le'Veon Bell, going as far as having lunch with the running back's agent last week.
The Pro Bowl safety has said he's tried to contact Bell himself but has not been able to reach through.
Well, it appears Adams has gotten Bell's attention now.
The pending free agent running back sent an unsolicited, cryptic tweet tagging Adams on Monday that read, "@TheAdamsEra funny af."
@TheAdamsEra funny af 😂- Le'Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) February 4, 2019
Yes, Adams noticed.
😂😂😂 we have fun out here in NY L Bell! https://t.co/PdK3gQBEtZ- Jamal Adams (@TheAdamsEra) February 4, 2019
And then Bell responded with a tease to Jets fans everywhere.
ayeeee, say no more 🤐- Le'Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) February 5, 2019
Whether or not this means the two have spoken or if he is just aware of Adams' recruiting efforts is hard to decipher, but it is noteworthy that Bell would tweet about Adams.
The only problem is Adams may not be enought to sway Bell to New York.
The Jets will have roughly $100 million in cap space and could target the 26-year-old this offseason, but they reportedly are not willing to "break the bank" for Bell -- who sat out all last season after the Steelers were unable to reach a long-term deal with him.
Bell is also not out of the Steelers' grasp just yet.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that Pittsburgh could still use the transition tag on Bell, whhich would give them the right to match any offer sheet the pending free agent receives from another team.
SNY's Ralph Vacchiano also reported in December that Bell had his eyes on the Indianapolis Colts and wants to join a team that can win right away.
Yet Adams is trying to sell Bell that the Jets are not too far off.
"I want you guys to come be a part of something special,"Adams said Wednesday on the NFL Network, also addressing Steelers' WR Antonio Brown. "I think we have a lot of new energy, new coaching staff. The sky's the limit, we're just missing a few pieces. If you guys come join us, there will be nothing like bringing a Super Bowl back to the Jets organization."
