Jets head coach and interim GM Adam Gases podiumed on Thursday before another OTA and asked questions as to Le & # 39; Veon Bell .
Earlier this month, it was reported that Gases was not a fan of Bell's contract, which was one of the reasons why there was an alleged gap between him and former GM Mike Maccagnan.
As he also shot down the crack reports, Gases said he was excited to have Bell on his field.
"We signed him in. I'm excited to have him," he said. "I was in constant communication with him."
These comments were seen by Bell on Twitter and he basically confirmed that they talked daily while training alone, rather than in Florham Park at the Jets & # 39; Facility /

With all the talk about dysfunction in the jets' camp, it was good to see this exchange between player and coach. Bell received a $ 52.5 million four-year contract that was to be the backbone of the jets' crime for the foreseeable future. Gases are tasked with getting the ball into Bell's hands as best as possible, since its versatile skill in running and catching makes it very dangerous for opponents.
And gases are happy about that. I mean, who would not want Bell to play in his team, even if he's been away from the game for a whole year? Therefore, Gases has also quashed the rumors that the Jets could swap it.
"That's ridiculous," said Gase. "This is the first time I've heard about it."
It's never good to see such stories on the news before the training camp starts, let alone the season. But Gases and Bell both seem to keep one ear in and the other out as they focus on turning the jets together.
