New York Jets – Thoughts on Waiver Wire Additions & Current 53

A handful of thoughts on the New York Jets waiver moves today and where their current 53 man roster sits at. 1. It was mildly surprising to see the Jets add running back Alex Green and then cut ties with Kahlil Bell, considering how strongly Bell finished the pre-season. Green has a bit more upside and was relatively productive in Green Bay last season, despite a poor yards per...

Bears part ways with RB Bell

The Chicago Bears released veteran running back Kahlil Bell Thursday evening, after Bell refused to take a pay cut. The Bears reportedly wanted Bell to reduce his salary from $1.2 million to between $500-$700,000.

He was signed to the Bears primarily as a special teamer when Garrett Wolfe went on the injured list. His flashes of brilliance that year were good enough to keep him on board for 2010 and he managed to work his...

It doesn’t appear the Bears are blowing smoke. Matt Forte’, the dynamic 26 year old running back for the Chicago Bears, continues to be mired in a contract dispute that threatens to get uglier before it gets better.  This holdout feels different, both sides are entrenched and the clock is ticking.  As of today, the parties have just over five weeks to resolve their multi...
