Le’Veon Bell Reacts to Joining Jets on Twitter in Perfect Fashion

Le’Veon Bell finally made his decision on where he’ll play during the 2019 NFL season and beyond. ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report the news which will send the All-Pro running back to the New York Jets on a four-year contract. After the decision came to light, Bell took to social media to sound off on the decision and his new team.

And he did so in perfect fashion with a tweet which both gives a tip of the cap to his new team while also pointing out that he got paid.
