Le'Veon Bell has no regrets about sitting out last season and perhaps overplaying his negotiating hand as he entered free agency.

Bell said he's very happy with the "beautiful deal" he got from the New York Jets.

The running back signed a four-year, $52.5 million contract, including $25 million guaranteed at signing.

"I don't regret anything that had happened," Bell said. "Everything's happened for a reason. Who can say that if I played last year, you know, if I do go out and play last year on a one-year franchise tag, if I do get hurt, do I end up sitting in this position today, being with the New York Jets on a beautiful deal?"
