As previously reported, the Pittsburgh Steelers decided not to tag Bell and he will become an unrestricted free agent next week. He did not play in 2018 after being franchise tagged by Pittsburgh last March.
In addition to Bell, the Jets reportedly have interest in running back Tevin Coleman. As far as wide receivers go, the Jets could be in on Donte Moncrief, Danny Amendola or Cole Beasley. There is also said to be interest in former Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
Finally, the Jets plan to improve their offensive line in free agency.
