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?”
It’s just a fantastic feeling once you’re appreciated. . .isn’Can it be? 👀
But new Ravens general director Eric DeCosta recently said he would like to be more”financially responsible” with the cap. DeCosta’s philosophy wouldn’t be adhered to by signing Bell into a flourishing deal. Bell’s ultra-patient running style also isn’t a fantastic match for plays, which will remain a component of the season’s offense. Questions together with Bell include his durability to how well he’ll play after sitting out an entire season.
Baltimore ought to be from the market at back, to upgrade. The Ravens have created the best without high-profile talent from the backfield, heading with Justin Forsett, Terrance West, Alex Collins and Gus Edwards because their top rushers because parting ways using Ray Rice in 2014.
Given the social media interaction Fridayit appears there’s a mutual interest between Jackson and Bell. As for the Ravens’ front office, that remains to be seen.
