Jets running back Le'Veon Bell has had the benefit of playing alongside a future Hall of Famer as a member of the Steelers, but he'll now be making the transition from the veteran to a young signal-caller entering their first year in the league.

"I'm a guy who's going to root for him", Bell told reporters Tuesday after the Jets' mandatory minicamp.

"It was wonderful", a grinning Bell said Tuesday after the Jets began their three-day minicamp. But I feel like once I go out here, I play, first game coming up, people will be reminded. I think, me and Le'Veon, we get along well. "It's just kind of when we click, we click". After minicamp and organized team activities conclude a week from Thursday, Darnold said he intends to continue building chemistry with teammates while learning coach Adam Gase's offense. "Obviously, he sat out previous year and that's just not good for the league in general because he's such a tremendous player".

"There have been false reports about me, so I don't really buy into reports", Bell said. But, he was plenty involved with ratcheting up the overall energy on the field - talking smack with defensive players throughout.

He's already the franchise leader in postseason games played, assists, steals and three mades. He's averaging 30.9 points and 9.0 rebounds in 21 postseason games so far.

The Gase-Maccagnan disagreement over Bell is one of the factors that led to Maccagnan's ouster, sources said. He also raised the decibel level with his trash-talking.

And the ex-Pittsburgh Steeler already seems thrilled to be playing for NY. I know, in turn, he wants the same thing for me.

He thinks he'll get more opportunities in Gase's offense, which is saying a lot since he had a whopping 406 touches during the 2017 season.

Barkley and Bell will face off twice this year. I'm going to make opportunities for him that he's never had before, too. We'll bounce off each other.
