UPDATE (9:05 p.m. ET): The Jets have made Le’Veon Bell’s release official.
ORIGINAL STORY: The Le’Veon Bell era in New York reportedly is over.
The Jets released the seven-year NFL vet Tuesday night, per ESPN’s Field Yates. Bell rushed for 19 yards and caught three receptions for 74 yards in two games for New York.
And it appears a trade could not be made.
Bell’s release leaves the Jets with quite a bit of dead cap space.
The 28-year-old has 38 career touchdowns and 1,493 rushing yards.
