It’s unclear just how far those conversations with the Jets went, but it’s certainly interesting that the Patriots inquired about the three-time Pro Bowler. Now that Bell can be signed for the veteran minimum, the Pats rumors likely will linger until the 28-year-old finds his new team.

The Jets signed Bell to a four-year deal worth $52.5 million, including $27 million guaranteed, in 2019. He played in only 17 games with New York.
