    I think it's hard to compare contracts because of how they're constructed. The steelers are really good at honoring the entire contract - so even though the guaranteed money was less, bell likely would have collected all of it, and thus he likely lost millions with this last years antics. That being said, the NFL is a brutal business and there are countless examples of that - Eric Berry is a recent one. Mike Golic talking about how he got cut from the Dolphins is another. So while I believe Bell left money on the table - that's just based on how the Steelers have traditionally behaved.

    But if you're a dope smoking moron who's one bad decision away from career suicide - perhaps guaranteed money, even if it's a lesser amount, is not a bad financial decision.

    Gase didn't want Bell either. Not worth the money.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    I’d fire that GM too for that.

    LeíVeon Bell contract was point of contention between Mike Maccagnan and Adam Gase

    Posted by Mike Florio on May 15, 2019

    With the rumors and reports of Jets G.M. Mike Maccagnan being on the outs coming to fruition, related rumors and reports need to be taken more seriously than they may have been.

    Hereís what we wrote when the rumors of Maccagnan getting fired first emerged: ďSome have pointed to the decision to sign running back Le'Veon Bell as the biggest sticking point between Gase and Maccagnan. (Or, more accurately, the decision to pay Bell as much as the Jets did, given that the Jets likely could have gotten him for significantly less.) Bellís decision to skip a voluntary minicamp this week gave Gase plenty of ammunition for a round of I told you soís within the teamís facility.Ē

    Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News now reports that Gase didnít want Bell at all. Although the more accurate explanation would be that Gase didnít want Bell at that price, the point remains that Gase wasnít on board with the decision to break the bank for the former Pittsburgh tailback.

    With Bell still absent from offseason workouts, the report makes an already awkward relationship even more awkward, and Gase and Bell could have a hard time getting and staying on the same page.

    It will be for Gase to make Bell believe Gase wanted the player. And it will be for Gase to realize that what he wanted currently doesnít matter, and that the best play will be to do whatever needs to be done to get the most out of Bell moving forward.

    Get the popcorn. Should be fun watching Bell be miserable in NY. He said he wasn't happy in Pittsburgh at all and didn't like being valued less than Ben.

    Then he went on to talk about how the coaches and players made him feel important and valued in NY. This is almost comical hearing his new coach didn't really want him.

    Welcome to NY sports. I had to edit because the last article sums it up perfectly. Not sure whatís going on in NYC but the sports franchises are a freaking mess. Who are these owners and why are they so bad at this?

    How do you fire a GM right after the draft? What makes Gase so special?

    Weird how some of these new coaches are able to grab so much power so quickly.

    Good thing that money is guaranteed. LOL.

    It’s not like not signing good players has worked out well for the Jets. You can’t get better on the cheap. That’s not how it works in today’s NFL. You have to draft well AND get playmakers.

    Good thing that money is guaranteed. LOL
    after what happened in Miami I'm very surprised Adam Gase ever got another NFL head coaching job.

    I changed my post after reading your link to that article.

    Amazing. How does a coach get hired in the same division AND get the GM fired that quickly?

    No wonder the Pats keep winning that division. These other teams FO’s are a joke
