First, the media asked him the question, and he answered. Second, the media likes to bring shit out like this at the best time cause drama sells. Regardless of how you feel about this, I'm just gonna say my opinion so shoot. Pay him. Lock him up long term. If this year was a yr to prove anything, I think he’s earned it. You can’t just let go of a guy who gets u like over a thousand yds per season, along with how valuable he is every where else. The way he runs the ball, his receiving abilities. You can’t just replace that or let it go and expect to succeed. Sadly, Ben is in his last couple seasons plain and simple. The focal point of our offense has went from Ben to Bell the last few seasons. Bell is the reason why our offense is the way it is. It’s built for & around him. When he’s not there, we’re a totally different team. He’s that valuable, young, and has a lot to offer & really has proved himself. Despite what he's done in the past, he’s healthy & stayed out of trouble, along with putting up his usual numbers. It’s time we lock him up. We have a young offense and with guys like JuJu, AB, Bryant & whoever we get in the draft this season, we have a chance to keep a core group for a long while! Knowing that Ben is in his last couple seasons, you need Bell to help take the load off the future QB and help develop. Don't believe everything the media says. They always trying to find a damn story to write.
My top 3 free agents for the #49ers this offseason are:
1- Le’Veon Bell (RB)
He’ll cost a ton of money, but it’ll be worth it if we let Hyde go. We get a better running game to take some pressure off Jimmy G & Bell could also be used as another pass weapon.
2- Trumaine Johnson (CB)
It’s obvious we need a CB and Johnson will do a good job of shutting down our opponents top WR and helping our pass defense out a lot.
3- Demarcus Lawrence (DE)
Will provide a good pass rush, which we really need on defense. #49ers#NFL#TrustTheProcess#KeepTheFaith#BrickByBrick#LeVeonBell#TrumaineJohnson#DemarcusLawrence
