I am not sure if all this spending by the Jets is going to produce good results?

Now he can enjoy playing on a 3-13 team with a shitty O-line and people can see how really overrated he is.

How often do these major hold outs really benefit the player?

He is making less than the Steelers offer.

Not only is he making less, he also lost a years income by holding out. So factor that into the equation as well

I give him credit for saying Fuck You to the Steelers. He cost himself money but he felt that they were doing everything they could to run him into the ground and then let him go when he's shot. Where this technically could benefit him is if he can tack a couple years onto the end of his career. It'll be tough to make back $14m but if he gets a little longevity he will be fine.

Players for decades didn't have any power, then they got a little power with free agency. But the whole transitional and franchise tag thing isn't fair to the player, it's totally slanted towards the team. If you take a player and tag him, the salary should be 100% guaranteed AND include a second, guaranteed year at the players' discretion. If he refuses the second year, he becomes a free agent. This would keep teams from tagging the same guy multiple times and thus doing what the Steelers were doing to Bell and wearing him out.

Jets fan for 40 years. I'm not excited by this at all. I think Bell's numbers might be inflated by the fact that opposing defenses were keying on Ben and AB? Obviously I hope Bell does great in N.Y., but I'm not going to get my hopes up.
