Could television speculation develop into reality for just 2 AFC North rivals?

On Friday morningthe NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport commented on how the pairing of Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson“makes sense.”

Bell saw a tweet about a potential backfield game with Jackson and responded with a”thinking face” emoji.

Later Friday, Bell noticed that Jackson began following him on Instagram and reacted with”It’s a NEW ERA,” playing off Jackson’s Twitter handle”lj_era8.”

The Ravens are looking to include more explosive playmakers around Jackson, and Baltimore will possess more salary cap room going from Joe Flacco’s high priced price to Jackson’s cheaper rookie contract. Bell would certainly offer a boost from the passing game and may twist a short Jackson pass into a major play, which can be some thing that Baltimore lacked even after the commerce for Ty Montgomery. Plus, there are the bonus of having a moved Bell both times he were to handle his former team.

Bell tweeted Friday afternoon:”it’s merely a fantastic sense when you’re valued. . .isn’t it?”
