Oddsmakers 16-1 that Laveon Bell comes to Seattle

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13


  • I guess they're not aware that we have two starting-caliber running backs and that both of them are a lot more warmed up than Bell is.

  • Let's put that money into the defense... and continue rushing for 250 yards a game and see what happens:)

  • So if the reporting was accurate about the Steelers offering him five years, $60 million, how sky high is this dude looking? I could see some poorly run franchise paying him like $15 million/year, even with him sitting, but I'd be super surprised if the Seahawks were looking to put that kind of money into that position with what they have now.

  • We finally have 2 if not 3 very capable and productive backs, we are leading the league in rushing, handed the Rams nearly 300 yards on the ground...So yeah, Laveon Bell...Makes sense.

  • So we trade Carson and Penny and Davis as well as Prosise and Madden to the Steelers for Bell?


    That may not still balance the cap hit.

    Actually he really wasn't until after he got here and pulled off a Beastquake and Super Bowl side show. The 12's actually helped cement him into history.

    His first two years showed promise but that third was trash and he seemed checked out. It was not high profile though, more like, "see if Pete can touch his heart".

    Bell wouls totally be higher profile and less head rehab.

  • I'd like to see him go to Buffalo or Cleveland, but I don't think Cleveland would trade Chubb. Chubb is a badass. It still wouldn't surprise me to see Chucky drop money on him to lure Bell to the Raiders. I HIGHLY doubt he comes to Seattle.

  • I wouldn't be opposed to it if he came at a decent price. I'm not saying Carson is injury prone, but I'd be happy to see a Bell+Penny+Carson combo -- but only if we can get Bell for a great price. And with our Offensive line as good as it is now, imagine a player like Bell wrecking havoc. That would truly be a sight to see.

  • Seems like a really lazy prediction.

    "Seattle likes to run the ball, therefore Seattle is a good place for Bell to land." Sure, don't take into account that we already have 3-4 backs that can be productive, AND we just spent a #1 pick on a back that costs 1/10th of what having to pay Bell would cost.

    Good fit? Absolutely. Likely with needing all the cap space we can muster to build out defense back up? No.

  • Bell is a great talent and the way he runs limits the big hits he takes. I don't think he is a guy who will be on his way out of the league early and will likely be top 5 in the league for awhile.

    That said, he wants big time $$$ at a position teams don't pay out. Conner proved their system can essentially plug and go. I could see him being a great fit on the Texans or Colts, I just doubt he will get offers he wants after sitting out the year. League is moving away from running the ball (with obvious outlier being the Seahawks) and he is looking for top WR money.

    I think a team with a lot of cap space and wants to have a physical run game like the Jets, Browns, Titans, Colts, etc will offer him a nice contract. I don't think it will be a Gurley type record breaking contract, but certainly big by RB standards.

    Bell has too much personal and suspension baggage to warrant getting more than Gurley. But he's only 26, so someone's going to pay him..........a lot.

    Pretty much this. Oddsmakers place the odds dependent on how they think they can make the money flow into their coffers. The only basis on "reality" is the reality of what betters will bet on.

  • I agree with those who predict he’ll go to the Raiders. That seems like such a Jon Gruden and Mark Davis way of saying, “hey fans, sorry we sucked so bad last year. Allow us to make it up with a splashy free agent signing!”

    I could also see those sneaky bastard Eagles across the state making a run at him. Their GM has some of that Schneider “gambler” mentality in him.
