RB Le’Veon Bell Remains Without A Team; Where Might He Wind Up In 2021?

NFL training camps are set to open at the end of July, and there are still some big name free agents who don’t have jobs.

Every year, there’s always one free agent who can’t seem to find enough love from a team, and then he sits through the season until a team needs him because of an injury.

The biggest name free agent who still looking for work this offseason is former Steelers, Jets and Chiefs running back Le’Veon Bell.

When focused, Bell can be one of the most dynamic running backs in the game, but he can also be difficult to work with. He and the Steelers had a bad breakup, and his time with the Jets was a disaster. Then he recently came out and said he’d never play for Chiefs coach Andy Reid again. It was immature, to say the least.

Bell is now 29 years old, so he needs to be able to show off his skills now as Father Time continues to tick away.

CBS Sports now predicts that Bell will sign with the New Orleans Saints.

Linking up with the New Orleans Saints could make for an interesting pairing. Of course, Bell wouldn’t be the top dog in that backfield as Alvin Kamara would be the starter, but there could be snaps to be attained, especially if he can prove to be a better option than Latavius Murray.

Drew Brees has now retired and either Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill will soon take the reins as New Orleans’ new QB starter, so Sean Payton can use all the offensive weapons he can get. If Bell is willing to take on a secondary role, this has the potential to be everything he thought K.C. would provide him last year.

  1. Let’s be honest, no team with a real chance of competing for a title is going to sign this guy. He’s a distracting problem in the locker room and in the media. Plus, he’s not what he used to be on the field either. If he can’t play for a Hall of Fame Super Bowl coach like Andy Reid, that should tell you all you need to know.
