23. New York Jets

After finally finding a quarterback to potentially build the franchise around last spring by drafting Sam Darnold, one of the top priorities for the New York Jets this offseason was to build a better offense around the former USC star.

Without question, the Jets deserve a ton of credit for convincing Le’Veon Bell to join the team after sitting out all of last season since when healthy, he’s proven to be one of the top running backs in the league.

Right away, New York should see an immediate boost on offense since Bell is the kind of running back that Darnold can use in multiple ways, whether it’s the ground game or simply dumping off a quick pass.

Missing a year of action may draw some concerns at first, but knowing Bell’s mindset of being a workhorse, the running back should be back to his normal ways in no time to help the Jets become a potential sleeper team in the AFC.

Bell certainly isn’t going to solve all of the problems New York dealt with throughout last season, but his addition is just another major step in the right direction for this team to give them a better chance of competing in the AFC East.
