  • Ian Hartitz analyzes what the Le'Veon Bell signing means for the New York Jets, the running back's fantasy football ceiling and more.

The wait is over: Le’Veon Bell has reportedly agreed to sign with the New York Jets. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the contract is for four years and $52.5 million.

The Jets were widely considered to be the only team truly bidding for Bell. Their prize is one of the league’s most complete running backs — as long as he decides to show up and play football again in 2019.

Let’s break down the on-field and fantasy football impacts of this blockbuster deal for both teams.

What This Signing Means for the Jets

The Jets now have one of the best running backs in the league.

Bell possesses a dizzying array of jukes, spins and stiff arms that have made him one of toughest players to tackle for the better part of the past half decade.
