Running back Le & # 39; Veon Bell, who expressed concern over overtime of the Pittsburgh Steelers, does not have to worry about it at his new team.
New York Jets coach Adam Gase, commenting Tuesday on his award-winning free-agent addition, promised to pay attention to Bell's workload in the field and in games.
"You can carry a guy out with too many rushes, too many hands, too many snaps and too many exercises," says Gase's journalists at NFL owners meeting in Phoenix. "We're watching it. It's not going to be where we burn him out in the first six months we're aware of."
RB's former coach says, "I know New York. It'll be like," We have Le & # 39; Veon – here we go! "I think you should put the line a little lower to start."  If the jets are ending their eight-year-old playoff drought, Mike Maccagnan is a genius. If they have a fourth straight losing season, he may be out of a job.

From 2013 to 2017, Bell compiled 1,541 rushes and receptions, second only to LeSean McCoy's 1,571. One of the reasons why Bell sat down last season in his contract with Steelers was that he felt another high-volume season would hurt his value in the FTA. As a result, he refused to play under the franchise mark and cost $ 14.5 million.
Bell, 27, got his money from the jets in his first free office foray so he couldn't have a problem with his number of touches. He signed a $ 52.5 million four-year contract, including $ 27 million on signing.
"I've always felt like a good feeling for when a guy is tired or is heading towards maybe we have him down," gas said. "We start early where he will get a certain amount of reps. He thinks he is a runner back, he is a veteran who runs back and he plays a very physical position."
After signing, Bell said that the year out did wonders for his health and said this "is the best my body has ever felt in my life."
Gase said he had "no reservations" to commit to a player who spent a year away from the game even though he acknowledged that "may take a second" for Bell to regain his form.
