According to SNY's NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano, the Jets may look into trading running back Le'Veon Bell and safety Jamal Adams this offseason.
Bell is in his first season with the team, after signing a four-year, $52.5 million deal with $35 million guaranteed on March 13.
"Obviously you know he's out today with his illness. It's the latest blow in what's shaping up as the worst season of his career," Vacchiano said. "But the question now is, will it be his only season with the Jets? Multiple sources around the NFL told me this week that they really do expect that the Jets will make Bell available this offseason."
Bell has 183 carries for 589 rushing yards and three touchdowns through 12 games this season. He's averaging just 49.1 yards rushing per game, a big dropoff from the 86.1 yards rushing per game he averaged in five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
"And that the Jets could be even more receptive to a trade than they weren't the deadline. They did get several calls on him back then, and their asking price was high. One source said it didn't seem like the Jets were really willing to move him then, but since then it's become pretty clear that Adam Gase can't find a way to make him the center piece of their offense, or doesn't want to."
"He's another player that league sources still expect the Jets might be willing to trade," Vacchiano said. "The Cowboys, of course, were in hot pursuit at the trading deadline, and they are likely to try again this winter."
Adams has one year left on his rookie contract, after being selected with the sixth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He has a career-high 6.5 sacks this season, along with two forced fumbles and one pick-six.
