Le'Veon Bell signs with Kansas City

Recommended Posts

At least he cant play Mon. Needs a 5 day quarantine or something.  

Not that it matters imo. I don't think he's a big upgrade over D Williams and CEH is def the starting RB.

Good to see the Bills at least try,  the fact is the Chiefs have way more talent on both sides on the ball and unless Beanne picks up some game changer on defensive side of the ball the Bills will have tough time getting past Chiefs.  Only thing that could that is health of the Chiefs.

 

Kudos to Bills for being pro active to improve the team

Bell’s gonna love it in KC when he gets 4-5 touches per game.  Seriously, how long is he going to be happy with all those mouths to feed and being the back-up to CEH?  I guess winning helps, but Bell strikes me as the type of guy who needs lots of touches.  I see a potential bad situation brewing in KC.

Has Bell definitely signed with Miami?

 

These are some tweets I found about his offer there.  I suspect, too rich for Beane's blood, considering recent history

 

 

 

Now this could be complete Ca-ca but if he's wanting a 4 yr $48M contract with big guarantees - I think Beane will sincerely wish him the very best of luck.

 

I mean, the dude is 28 yrs  240 days old

I think Bell is worth $80.  :D

It's a one year deal.. I'm sure he'll be chasing the money and feature back status this off-season

Looking at his choice if the Chiefs says a lot. He wants a shot at a ring  WITHOUT beingThe primary back. Fits with his present performance, he didn’t want to be THE guy or Miami would probably have been very attractive. I think he knows he is not the same back that was in Pittsburgh ;  if he was still confident there is no way he would settle ,given his ego, to just be a role player getting 8-10 touches a game which is the likely scenario in KC.   The big concern in my eyes is what does this say about Moss’s  health. Why go after Bell ,who would have had to be  released.?  Jones, Yeldon, or is Moss close to IR with a nagging injury?   I see this as concern because if they have faith in Moss, why go after a struggling vet back who has.not produced in three years?    We all see the glaring CB , LB DL issues that if not addressed or miraculously improve will drag this team down, so it does raise a red flag perhaps about Moss that Mcbean felt they had to kick the tires on Bell. I think Bills being first out says they were looking for possible insurance if Moss’s injury drags on.

On the one hand, I see your point.

 

On the other hand, I think it's always worth entering the conversation for a guy who not too long ago, was a premier player in the league.

 

I also think Beane had his price in mind, and wasn't interested in inflating it.

Dude’s turning 29 in February.  He looks to me like he’s lost a step over the past two years, but people like to attribute his decline to playing for Gase/the Jets.  I guess I’ll buy that for now.

 

Do you really think any team is going to offer him a big contract next season?  Turning 30 and with a history of being a huge pain in the ass.  Serious question.

Thanks!

 

For sure, KC is loaded and if it's Superbowl he wants, I can't argue against them as his best bet among suitors.  I also can't argue against them as having the best proven run blocking of the three.

I think it will depend upon how/what he does in KC

Exactly, which is why I am puzzled as to why he didn’t choose MIA where it seems like he could have been the feature back almost immediately.  

 

Perhaps he is content with the $ he’s accrued already, and just wants a ring? 🤷🏾‍♂️

This is a very centered take.

If he had to go to a team that the Bills have to face, I'd rather it be KC versus Miami.  KC has so many weapons, to get Bell in the game one of those other weapons will need to come off the field.  In Miami he might have been a difference maker.  I don't see that in KC.

 

I appreciate the Bills making an effort.  Now that we lost out, I'd like to see them use Yeldon in the roll they may have envisioned Bell.
