Bell plans to sign with Dolphins, Chiefs, or Bills

Bell, 28, still has plenty left in the tank, with strong rushing skills and smooth work in the passing game as a receiver and pass protector. "We believe this decision is in the best interests of both parties and wish him future success". Jets head coach Adam Gase never seemed to back the signing, and things got worse this year with Bell playing in only two games this year. Steelers reunion unlikely at this point. He was being dragged down by a poor Jets offensive line and fickle usage by Gase.

A former standout at Michigan State, Bell was selected by the Steelers in the second round of the 2013 National Football League draft.

The presence of Bell gives the Chiefs a luxury to now scale back Edwards-Helaire's workload in his rookie season.

The Chiefs thought they would have Damien Williams, one of the heroes of their comeback victory over San Francisco in the Super Bowl, but he opted out because of the COVID-19 pandemic before the start of the season.

He rushed 19 times for 74 yards in only two games before his release this season in NY.

That 2016 title team had LeBron James - who just led the Los Angeles Lakers to the 2020 National Basketball Association title. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski , Tyronn Lue is finalizing a five-year deal to become the team's head coach.

For as swiftly as Bell found a new club, it will take him more time to join them, however.

Bell should have an immediate impact on the Chiefs running game - now ranked 19th in the league with an average of 108 rushing yards per game. With the Steelers, it was a full yard more, 4.3, a better mark than Edwards-Helaire's in 2020.

He then signed a four-year, $52.5m deal as a free agent with the Jets in March 2019. He also had 69 catches for 500 receiving yards and a touchdown.

Bell joins rooke Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams, Darwin Thompson and DeAndre Washington in the Chiefs' backfield. Kansas City won in the end.
