Le’Veon Bell got lots of money from Jets for little work, but still sold himself short

If the goal was to obtain the most amount of money in exchange for the least amount of football, then certainly Le’Veon Bell scored big.

When he was released Tuesday by the Jets — the organization declaring it was “in the interest of both parties” — he had received $28,031,250 in exchange for 17 games, 264 carries, 69 receptions, four touchdowns and 1,363 net yards gained.

You may divide any of those football statistics into his exorbitant paycheck and get a staggering quotient. For instance: $20,565.84 per yard. That 2-yard run on the Jets’ second play from scrimmage in Sunday’s ludicrous 30-10 loss to the Cardinals’? That was $41,131.69 right there.

Cha-ching.

Morning Bell With Jim Cramer: Buy Alphabet if This Happens

In the last episode of Mad Money, Jim Cramer said that the stock market has something for everyone as President Donald Trump was reportedly doing better, while Democratic challenger Joe Biden continues to widen his lead in the polls. That sent many different sectors rallying, even if they typically wouldn’t trade in tandem.
