Crowell on Thursday Rocky Bleier Jersey , an expected move after the team signed Le’Veon Bell.Crowell spent one season with the Jets after playing his first four in Cleveland. He broke the franchise record with 219 yards rushing on just 15 carries in New York’s win over Denver in Week 5. He also set the team mark with 231 yards from scrimmage.The Jets had until Friday before $2 million of Crowell’s $4 million salary became guaranteed. By releasing him now, New York gains $3 million on the salary cap, but is stuck with $2 million in dead money.The addition of Bell, officially announced by the Jets on Thursday night , made Crowell expendable. The former Pittsburgh Steelers star signed a four-year deal worth $52.5 million.The 26-year-old Crowell finished with 685 yards rushing and six touchdowns last year before a toe injury ended his season in December.Crowell made headlines in New York’s Week 3 loss at Cleveland last season when he scored a touchdown in the second quarter against his former team and wiped the football against his rear end. The crude celebration resulted in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and, later, a $13 Joe Gilliam Jersey ,369 fine from the NFL. It wasn’t all bad for Crowell, who received an endorsement deal with DUDE Wipes, a company that sells a toilet paper substitute for men.The Jets also announced they re-signed starting nose tackle Steve McLendon, who has spent the last three years with the team, as well as offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison and defensive back Darryl Roberts.New York’s trade with Oakland for left guard Kelechi Osemele was also made official by the team Thursday night. The Jets sent their fifth-round draft pick to the Raiders for Osemele and Oakland’s sixth-rounder. Osemele will replace James Carpenter, who signed with Atlanta as a free agent. Jets coach Adam Gase can hardly contain himself. He keeps watching film of Le'Veon Bell and keeps coming up with new ideas of how to use him.“I love his variety,” Gase said Terry Bradshaw Jersey , via Kim Jones of NFL Media. “I love that he could do everything. And I think the more film I watch since we’ve signed him, I think I tried not to tease myself too much by watching too much film. “But since we have signed him, I’ve just amped it up and trying to figure out what has he done in Pittsburgh? You know, how far can we take him? What can we do in the passing game? What do we have to make sure we do right with him in the running game? How do we kind of build this thing around Sam [Darnold], him and some of the other pieces that we have? So you know, it’s been fun to watch, really go back and watch what he’s done in the past.” Bell rushed for 5 Louis Lipps Jersey ,336 yards, had 2,660 receiving yards and scored 42 total touchdowns in his five seasons in Pittsburgh before he decided to sit out last season rather than sign the franchise tag.Gase has no worries about Bell missing a year.“For me, it was when I first saw him and he walked in just the excitement that he had of being there, you could tell he’s ready to go,” Gase said. “That was probably not an easy thing for him to do.”
