Le’Veon Bell, a former Jets running back, speaks out about his release by the Ravens.
After opting to start the 2021 season with the league’s youngest roster, the New York Jets have a dismal 2-7 record through the first ten weeks.
The promise of better days ahead is the only ray of hope for fans.

Of course, there’s always the small consolation that our “exes,” who got us into this mess in the first place, aren’t exactly killing it either.
Jamal Adams is leading the Seattle Seahawks to a last-place finish — and a top-10 draft pick for the Jets — and Sam Darnold and Robby Anderson aren’t faring much better in Carolina.

Ty’Son Williams, an undrafted rookie from BYU, has also rushed for more yards this season.
These numbers are a far cry from Bell’s days as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, or even the New York Jets.
The superstar stayed in black and yellow for his final season because he knew his position in the league had a limited shelf life and he believed he deserved a higher salary.
Bell was correct, though he could never have predicted that his career would be on life support only two years after signing a long-term contract in New York.
