Even before Le’Veon Bell chose not to report to the Steelers and sit out the entire 2018 NFL season, one thing was already a near certainty: The 27-year-old running back will play for a different NFL team in 2019.Bell is set to become an unrestricted free agent this week. While 27 near the older side for his position, he has limited wear after five incomplete regular seasons and will be refreshed after his year away from the field. Le’Veon Bell free agency 2019: Good fitsAFC: Ravens, TexansNFC: BearsBefore Lamar Jackson took over at QB, Baltimore was a pass-happy team in 2018 with limited power-running results from Alex Collins. The Ravens were disappointed enough in their backs to trade for Ty Montgomery, and now they are in line to field a new offense next season with Joe Flacco out of the picture. In Bell, Jackson would have a dangerous outlet in the short passing game. The Ravens also should think about how Bell, a former player for their AFC North rivals, will be motivated to help them.In Houston, Lamar Miller is starting to look pedestrian, and once-promising D’Onta Foreman is recovering from a torn Achilles. Bell could take the Texans’ offense to the next level alongside Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins.Chicago tried to plug the square peg that is Jordan Howard into the round hole that is Matt Nagy’s wide-open offense, but it didn’t work. The Bears love Tarik Cohen, but he is best suited to be a pure receiving back. Bell is a versatile workhorse who could handle both the power running and the spread receiving. Imagine Bell supporting Mitchell Trubisky and all his weapons.And the Bears, like the Rams, realize it is smart to be aggressive and load up around a first-round QB who’s still on his rookie deal.Teams that will be tempted to sign Le’Veon Bell in free agencyAFC: BillsNFC: BuccaneersBuffalo (passing offense) and Tampa Bay (passing defense) have other priorities in free agency. The Bills also have LeSean McCoy signed for one more year at $6 million. The Bucs need help at running back, but the Jameis Winston project under new coach Bruce Arians is the bigger quandary. NFL FREE AGENCY: Tracking signings, rumorsBell might not break the bank the way he wants in free agency, but somebody will compensate him with good guaranteed money in relation to the market.The question: What teams will be willing and able to spend on Bell, and what teams can we rule out? (2019 salary cap projections via Overthecap.com)Le’Veon Bell free agency 2019: Best fitsAFC: Dolphins, Jets, Raiders As well as Frank Gore played in Miami last year, he will hit free agency before his age-36 season. And as talented as Kenyan Drake is, the Dolphins might not trust him enough to give him consistent double-digit touches. Bell could provide Miami a hard-running veteran who could run for chunk yardage and be dynamo in their passing game. And based on social media, we know he doesn’t mind Miami.The Jets in 2018 did not get justifiable returns from Isaiah Crowell, and Bilal Powell will be a 30-year-old free agent coming off neck surgery. Elijah McGuire and Trent Cannon have flashed, but they are change-of-pace types. Sam Darnold needs a legit back to ease the pressure, as Baker Mayfield (Nick Chubb), Josh Rosen (David Johnson) and Josh Allen (LeSean McCoy) had to varying degrees as rookie first-round QBs. Bell could be a major asset for new coach Adam Gase.The Raiders lost Marshawn Lynch to a season-ending groin injury last year, and at 32, he is unsigned for 2019. Doug Martin ran hard in Lynch’s place, but he also was on a one-year deal. Given how much coach Jon Gruden seems to love big-name veterans in his offense, he would sign off on making Bell a hefty offer.MORE: Bell and Brown are gone, but Steelers’ failures with them will endure Teams that can afford Le’Veon Bell but don’t need himAFC: Colts, Titans, BroncosNFC: Redskins, Packers, 49ersThe Colts suddenly have a nice young committee with Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins. The Titans suddenly are feeling better about their Dion Lewis-Derrick Henry combination.The Broncos and 49ers have proved they can find undrafted gems in Phillip Lindsay and Matt Breida, then plug in system power backs to complement them. The Redskins, who will be limited in cap space for 2019, will hope for a healthy rebound from Derrius Guice.Bell might have made sense for the Packers before they finally trusted Aaron Jones enough to let him loose in their offense late in the season.MORE: NFL’s highest-paid playersTeams that can’t afford Le’Veon BellNFC: EaglesBefore the 2018 trade deadline, rumors suggested Philadelphia was interested in keeping Bell in the Keystone State with a midseason trade. The Eagles’ running game struggled all season, in part due to injuries. But coach Doug Pederson likes the committee approach. Bell also is a luxury the Eagles can’t afford in 2019, when, per OverTheCap.com, they will face the league’s worst salary cap situation.Teams that don’t need Le’Veon BellAFC: Patriots, Jaguars, Bengals, Browns, Chiefs, ChargersNFC: Cowboys, Giants, Falcons, Panthers, Saints, Lions, Vikings, Cardinals, Rams, SeahawksThese teams have either drafted a running back they like over the past three years or locked up a young veteran to a lucrative, long-term deal. Bell won’t be hearing a ring tone from any of these 16 teams in 2019.
