I wasn’t going to write about this because I think it’s just a rumor that won’t pan out. However, it’s becoming clear that Bell wants to play for the Dolphins and this actually might happen.
While he’s a great RB, I don’t know if he’s the right fit here. First of all, he had that huge issue of him holding out from the Steelers. If you give up on one team, your mind set doesn’t change and you can easily give up on another. He sat out and wouldn’t play for the Steelers, and then he chose the last-place Jets. That does not sound like a man who wants to win, but a man who wants money. Nothing wrong with that. I wish I had more money too. But when you WILLINGLY choose a last-place team, I think that tells you about a guy’s makeup.
Second, while our current RBs are not setting the world on fire, they are not bad either. This isn’t like when Tricky Rickey Williams decide to go smoke weed and abandon the team, leaving us with pretty much no decent RBs. We have RBs and we have depth. So unless Bell wants to play for dirt cheap (this is unlikely, see above), I’d pass on this.
Very curious about your Bell opinions…
