Chiefs Sign Le’Veon Bell 2 Days After Release From Jets

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have signed running back Le’Veon Bell two days after he was released by the New York Jets. The move adds another potential dynamic offensive player to an offense that already features Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Bell was cut by the Jets after a disappointing tenure in New York that lasted less than two full seasons. Bell and coach Adam Gase appeared to not mesh since the running back signed a four-year, $52.5 million contract with $35 million guaranteed last year as a free agent.

The New York Jets have surprisingly released Bell, ending a disappointing tenure after less than two full seasons. The team issued a statement from general manager Joe Douglas on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2020, in which he says the Jets made the move after having several conversations with Bell and his agent during the last few days and exploring trade options.
