Bell To Kansas City

Oct. 15 (UPI) — Former New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell is signing a short-term contract with the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.

League sources told ESPN and NFL Media on Thursday that Bell, who was released by the Jets earlier this week, will sign a one-year deal with the Chiefs. According to the outlets, the Pro Bowl tailback narrowed his choices to the Miami DolphinsBuffalo Bills and Chiefs before choosing Kansas City.

The 28-year-old Bell will be required to go through five days of COVID-19 testing before he can join the Chiefs, according to league protocols, meaning he will be unavailable to play in the team’s upcoming game against the Bills on Monday.

The Jets released Bell — who was frustrated with the organization over his lack of involvement in the offense — on Tuesday after failing to find a trade partner for the running back.
