-- A Key Reason Why the Jets Released LeVeon Bell This Week --
Sun Oct 18, 2020 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports one significant reason behind the New York Jets' decision to release RB LeVeon Bell this past week was the $8 million injury guarantee in the running back's contract for 2021, league sources said. Had Bell suffered a long-term injury, the Jets likely would have been on the hook for an additional $8 million in 2021, when they wanted to cut their already pricey losses. So rather than keeping Bell on their roster up until the Nov. 3rd trade deadline, when the Jets might have been able to recoup a late-round draft pick for the disgruntled former Pro Bowler, they opted to release him this past Tuesday. League sources believe that any type of injury to Bell could have led to a prolonged dispute between him and the Jets over the $8 million injury guarantee.
