It’s not the first time there were dots connected, but once again the Cleveland Browns are considered a potential landing spot for Le’Veon Bell in 2019
Currently, a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bell has made it known he’s unhappy with the contract situation he has with the Steelers. He’s locked in on the franchise tag for a second-straight season and he’s wanting a long-term deal with more security.
Bell is even holding out now as the two sides were unable to come to an agreement. That has most assuming he will leave once this season is over.
If he does, the Browns are expected to have a chance, although they’re not the odds-on favorite according to the site:
What’s most interesting about these odds is that the Steelers are third on the list despite it seeming like a foregone conclusion he’s leaving when the new year begins. Outside of them, only the Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets, and Detroit Lions are expected to have a better chance than the Browns.
Easily the most appealing thing to Bell would have to be the presence of Todd Haley on Cleveland. He was Bell’s offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh and the two have had a lot of success working together.
On top of that, Cleveland has plenty of cap space should they decide to try and give him a big deal. Of course, this is all hypothetical as long as the Steelers have his contract and it’s also dependent on whether or not the Browns would want him.
