The New York Jets have a dumpster fire on their hands, and cut ties with one of their running backs.
The team, with an 0-4 record through the first few weeks of the season, on Tuesday announced it was releasing running back Le’Veon Bell.
Since signing the three-time Pro Bowl running back to a four-year, $52.5 million deal last year, Bell played 17 games and scored just four touchdowns. New York already dished out $27 million on him, and he has another $6 million guaranteed next season.
Yeah, this all sounds very on brand for the Jets, and Twitter had plenty of jokes about it.
