Earlier this week the NFL trade deadline came and went without significant moves being made around the league. Despite the names of several NFL stars being floated around, no big deals were made.

Perhaps the closest a deal came was between the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys for safety Jamal Adams.

However, a different Jets star suggested he was on the trade block as well.

Running back Le'Veon Bell was a guest on Uninterrupted’s 17 Weeks podcast. During his time on the show, Bell revealed several teams were reportedly interested in trading for him - including his former team.

Here's what Bell had to say, via Pro Football Talk.

"I found out from my agent, you know, he had talked to the Jets and things like that. But there were teams like Houston, the Packers, the Kansas City Chiefs, and surprisingly the Steelers, were all in the mix of trying to trade for me."

Houston and Kansas City make sense from a football perspective, but Green Bay and Pittsburgh don't.

The Packers have Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams playing well, while the Steelers aren't giving up yet another top pick - while paying Bell a high salary - while James Conner, Jaylen Samuels and Benny Snell are on the roster.
