Rumors have been swirling with the NFL trade deadline approaching. The Jets have been involved in multiple trade scenarios regarding some of their star players.

According to initial reports, the Jets have fielded offers for star running back Le'Veon Bell. But the latest from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter suggests teams' offers have been underwhelming.

Looks like the trade interest is cooling down as the report below suggests.

"Barring a last-hour change, the Jets don’t plan to trade RB Le’Veon Bell before today’s 4 pm deadline, per source," Schefter said. "Jets received calls, but not enough interest to make a deal."

The Jets were unlikely to deal Bell, barring any major offers. And as Schefter reports, "the Jets don't plan to trad RB Le'Veon Bell before today's 4 pm deadline."

Probably the right move for New York at this point. There's no point in making a quick decision regarding on of the team's best players.

Bell is an elite back, but he's struggled during his time with New York. He's rushed for 349 yards while adding 187 receiving yards and two total touchdowns through seven games.

The trade deadline is at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The Jets have limited time if any deal is to be made.
