Le’Veon Bell wants to get paid, but he also wants to play for a team that can win right away. With that said the Colts have both money and the ability to win right away.
Bell has hinted at playing for the Colts and now a source who has talked to the soon to be free agent says he “has his eyes on the Colts.”
Running back Le’Veon Bell, who is expected to become a free agent on March 13, “has his eyes on” the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source familiar with Bell’s plans. The source, who has spoken to Bell, said the free agent hasn’t ruled out signing with the Jets or any team that pursues him, but the Colts, with quarterback Andrew Luck and perhaps more than $120 million in salary cap room, seem to be at the “top of his list.”
“He has his eyes on the Colts, no doubt about that,” the source said. “He sees Luck and that offense and all that cap room and they’re much closer than the Jets. He wants to go someplace he can win right away.”
Bell may have his eyes on the Colts, but it’s ultimately going to come down to who is willing to pay him. If he wanted to play for a winner and get paid, he would have been on the field with the Steelers this season.
