One of the offseason's biggest questions will soon have its answer.

Superstar running back Le'Veon Bell is close to making a decision on his next team, and it is reportedly down to the Jets and Ravens, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. 

Bell sat out the entire 2018 season, choosing to preserve his body rather than play out the one-year, $14.5 million deal he received when slapped with the franchise tag by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The 27-year-old back has been named an All-Pro in three of his five NFL seasons. In his most recent campaign back in 2017, Bell averaged 4.0 yards per carry, running for 1,291 yards and nine touchdowns on 321 carries.

Bell is incredibly versatile, consistently proving himself as one of the league's best pass-catching running backs throughout his career. The 6-foot-1 back racked up a whopping 85 receptions for 655 yards and two touchdowns in 2017, marking the third time he has finished a season with 75+ receptions and 600+ receiving yards. 

The former second-round pick has rushed for 5,336 yards and 35 touchdowns on 1,229 carries (4.3 yards per carry) in his five-year career, while adding 312 receptions for 2,660 yards and seven touchdowns.
