According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the contract is for four years and $52.5 million.
Several teams were mentioned throughout the past few days as having interest in signing Bell, with the Jets consistently among them. The Raiders have a need at running back and have money to spend, so they are a natural fit for rumors - especially after just rolling out the Brinks truck for Brown. Though he was a game-changing player for the Steelers during the 2017 season when we saw him last, it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility Bell isn't that same player now, roughly 14 months after his last time on the field.
It's an interesting situation, and while Howard has just one year remaining on his rookie deal, it comes with a salary cap hit of slightly more than $2.087 million, per Spotrac. He sat out the entire 2018 season due to a contract dispute and seemingly left the Steelers on negative terms.
The Steelers, who found success in the backfield last season with Pro Bowl selection James Conner and backup Jaylen Samuels, will receive a 2020 compensatory pick for losing Bell that could be worth as high as a third-round selection.
Brown will sign the biggest deal for his position in the National Football League at a 4-year, $66 million deal and guarantees $36.75 million.
The Chicago Bears have shown a willingness to move running back Jordan Howard and were approached about it by "multiple teams" at the combine, per Schefter.
Bell, 27, has averaged 86.1 yards per game in the 62 total games he's played in his career.
While Bell skipped all of past year, he still figures to be in his prime at age 27.
The Jets and Ravens could be the final two teams in it at the end for Bell, suggests NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, who says while the Jets have upped their offer, Bell "has indicated to some friends around the league" how much he likes Baltimore.
