|Alright, lets play this out...

Upside: Bell wins MVP for 1,500 yards rushing and 1,000 receiving, 15 tds. Jets 9-7, Pats win division, no wild-card for Jets.
Holdout for more money is -180 during training camp of 2020 because "he outplayed his contract".
Downside: He's obviously been embarrassed by "settling" for $50M after p*ssing away $14.5 by not playing in 2018, and he mails it in because this is who he is. (If he couldn't play for the $14.5 from Pitt or the 5-years $70M they offered, how's he going to do on the Section 8 money the Jets are paying him?)
The league should've let him rot (and I despise the Steelers but I don't like the precedent he set with that bs in 2018).
