Bell is on the move.

Le'Veon Bell drops a big hint about the team he wants to play for next

The Le'Veon Bell saga isn't over just yet.

Just when we thought that the running back refusing to report to the Pittsburgh Steelers before his allotted time to play again this season meant that this would be the last we hear of Bell's name this season, he's back in the news. 

But, thankfully, this time it isn't something to do with his contract or the franchise tag that he refused to sign at the start of the season. 

Bell is technically going to be a free agent as we head into the offseason, unless the Steelers fancy paying him QB money of course, and it seems like the big man in already dropping hints as to what he'll do. 

Over on Instagram, the former Michigan State star commented on a post pointing out Andrew Luck's recent success, and it's got us talking that's for sure.

Luck has been balling out in Indianapolis this season and Bell has taken notice.

Bell and Luck would be a hell of a combination, but would the Colts really want to pay a running back more than $10m a year when Marlon Mack is doing admirably in his first real season as a starter.

So far in 2018, Mack has 556 yards and four touchdowns on 109 carries - an average of 5.1 yards per attempt. 

At just 22-years-old and due only $645,000 next year - Mack is an excellent cost-effective player if he can continue at that rate.

Bell's most likely landing spot right now looks to be the New York Jets, who are in desperate need of playmakers to surround rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. With Bell in the backfield, so much pressure would be taken off the former USC QB.
