The Le'Veon Bell-to-Patriots rumors can be put to rest.
While Twitter was sleeping: Former Jets’ RB Le’Veon Bell is signing a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, a league source tells ESPN. Bell wanted to win a Super Bowl and believes Kansas City is the place to go to try to do it.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 15, 2020
Bell reportedly had narrowed down his list to the Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, and Miami Dolphins on Thursday. Schefter reported Wednesday that the Patriots were one of several teams to engage in trade discussions for Bell prior to New York releasing the running back.
In 17 games with the Jets, Bell rushed for 863 yards and three touchdowns. The three-time Pro Bowler signed a four-year, $52.5 million contract prior to the 2019 campaign.
