plus they could draft a cheap guy at 32 thats better than bell if they so choose

I would disagree that there is a RB in this class that is better than Bell(at least for 2020) but in that offense especially, they can easily find an adequate starter at 63. Then again, they may just feel that when healthy Damian Williams is just that, an adequate starter, so its possible they may not even address the position at all beyond maybe a late round depth pick.

The Chiefs might be willing to give up a draft pick for Bell if the Jets eat most of his 2020 salary.  Bell is due a guaranteed $13.46 million this year.  The problem is that Bell is due $11.5 million in 2021 and $13 million in 2022 so it'd likely be a 1 year rental.

There is no way the Chiefs are giving up a draft pick for this guy. 

They won their Super Bowl and have proven they can win it with any back you throw in there. They aren't giving up draft capital for this guy, especially with all the other holes they have in their roster this year.

According to ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini, the odds of Le'Veon Bell being traded this offseason are "remote."

Despite coach Adam Gase's open antagonism of Bell throughout his debut season in the Big Apple, Cimini doesn't see a trade coming to fruition without the Jets taking on a significant portion of his 2020 salary, which calls for a whopping $13.5 million in guarantees. Even then, Cimini wouldn't anticipate New York getting much in return for Bell (a Day 3 draft pick is probably the best they could hope for), who the Jets believe put on weight in 2019 while losing much of his explosiveness. Only Buccaneers plodder Peyton Barber averaged fewer yards per rushing attempt (3.1) than Bell (3.2) last season.

The Jets are unsure if Le'Veon Bell will participate in the team's offseason program.

"It’s not a huge deal," coach Adam Gase claimed. Gase has gone out of his way to make it clear he wouldn't mind if Bell were traded, but the running back's contract is almost impossible to move. Bell holds all leverage with the team and has little incentive to show up for voluntary work. Bell and Gase's relationship will be one to monitor during training camp. It is quite possible Gase attempts to go with more of a committee after Bell's down 2019.
