Running back Le’Veon Bell, recently released by the New York Jets, is said to have hit it off with the Kansas City Chiefs.
This news was reported by ESPN on Thursday evening. Bell had previously reduced its list of destinations to three teams, with the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills.
The Jets had previously tried to trade the 28-year-old after he expressed frustration with the organization. New York has not won a single game in five outings this season. Bell was forced to miss three of those five duels due to injury.
During his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers (2013 to 2017), the ball carrier established himself as one of the best players in his position, being invited three times to the Pro Bowl. He then missed the 2018 season because of a contract dispute, refusing the Pennsylvania organization’s franchise label.
His stint in the Big Apple lasted just 17 games in which he was limited to 863 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He also added 69 receptions for 500 yards and a major.
He signed a four-year, $ 52.5 million contract with the Jets in 2019.
