If he says they are closer, I hope it means he has come to his senses on his talk of $15-$17 million per year.

And realizes his $14 last year was almost twice as the next few highest paid backs.

Right with ya.

He has to understand that he isn't going to get anywhere near what he was hoping for (or offered) last year.

What's the best case for the team vs. the worst Bell would accept over/under?

I'll say 10.5 AAV contract, 5 years.

Like I said on another MB, he won't get what he thinks is the MAX, but will get a good bit more than last year's proposal.
I'm guessing closer to 14mil per year.

He won't sign for less than what they offered him last year.
Wasn't it basically an average of 12.5mil per year over 5?

To be honest, I hope they sign him and get this out of the way, as long as they can work the cap to not really cause any pain until the year after Ben retires.

I'd like to bring him back, mostly because I don't expect to Colbert and Co. to get nearly as impactful defensive players with that money as many are hoping for.

That said, if this ends up being a 5 year, $12M/per deal that isn't easy to get out of after year 2, that's going to suck even worse.

I think it was 5 and 60 with 30 million guaranteed.
