The base salary would be predetermined for the five games Bell was not on the Chiefs, meaning he would make about $ 690,000. He could earn up to $ 1.69 million this season with Kansas City before hitting 2021 free agency at the age of 29.
Bell signed with the Chief Justice on Thursday, two days after which he was released by the New York Jets, ending a 19-month term that was fraught with disappointment.
Bell, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, was a disappointment since signing the four-year, $ 52.5 million contract with the Jets last year for just 51 yards out of 53 qualified runners in the NFL during the period – Average per 3.3 yard.
The Jets are responsible for the remaining $ 6 million at the 2020 base pay, but there is an offset clause that would betray it by the amount of salary on their new contract with the Chiefs.
