It would be an understatement to say that Le’Veon Bell is excited for the new season.
Bell didn’t play last year as he opted to sit out instead of signing onto the franchise tag that the Steelers placed on him. The Jets signed him as a free agent this spring, and now he’s just a few days away from suiting up for his new team and finally getting back into a real NFL game.
It seems unlikely that Bell will be asked to carry the ball 50 times, but he should still be fresh and ready for his fair share of involvement against Buffalo.
Despite all the attention on his personal return to the field, Bell emphasized that he really doesn’t care how much he gets the ball. He just wants the team to win.
“I want to go out there, make sure I'm doing all the small things right and do enough for us to win the game … that’s all that matters.”
