The Kansas City Chiefs introduced a potential boost during their Thursday’s game by signing a deal with Le’Veon Bell who was released by New York Jets previously this week.
Bell, a veteran running back, signed a one-year contract with the Chiefs, said Adam Schefter from the ESPN group.
Bell expressed his excitement by tweeting about the news and soon received approval of the move by Star Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs, who also greeted Bell to the team through a tweet, play the Jets during Week 8.
Before he joins the Chiefs, Bell will have to undergo 5 days of coronavirus testing, as per the league protocols, and so will not be able to play on Monday’s game with Buffalo Bills.
The Chiefs stand at the 13th position in the NFL, rushing at around 119 yards a game. However, most of their good work came in during Week 1, wherein they enjoyed a terrific win over Houston Texans.
The Chiefs had to lose their starting running back Damien Williams prior to the beginning of this season as he had to opt out of the team for coronavirus reasons. The team also has Darwin Thompson, DeAndre Washington and Darrel Williams at the running back.
