3 Most Likely Le'Veon Bell Free Agent Destinations
The 2020 season was a rough one for Le'Veon Bell. He had already disappointed in his first post-holdout season in 2019, and things only got worse.
He was released after struggling through two games with the New York Jets. He then signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, but still struggled to produce while playing in arguably the best offense in the NFL.
He now enters free agency with his value at an all-time low. There will be no shortage of NFL teams looking to kick the tires on the former All-Pro, however, as long as Bell doesn't think he can command another big contract.
Here are the most likely landing spots for Le'Veon Bell.
Le'Veon Bell Free Agency
1. Green Bay Packers
Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are also set to hit free agency this offseason, and 2020 second-round pick A.J. Dillon is expected to take the lead in the Green Bay Packers backfield. Dillon caught only 2 passes in his rookie season, and the Pack will likely be in the market for a receiving threat to complement Dillon in the backfield. Even in his down year in 2019, Bell still flashed his impressive receiving chops by catching 66 passes (his fourth time eclipsing that mark in a single season). He'd be a nice low-risk, high-reward addition while the Packers look to make another NFC Championship push.
2. Buffalo Bills
Another hopeful Super Bowl contender, the Buffalo Bills have a clear weakness at running back. Bell isn't a guarantee to be much of an upgrade over Devin Singletary and Zack Moss, but this is another situation where the downside of signing Bell to a relatively cheap short-term contract doesn't make for much of a risk, while the upside of having him return to form with a full offseason with a new team could light a fire under Bell to bring a bounce-back.
3. Miami Dolphins
Of course, Bell may decide he doesn't want to have to fight to carve out a role in an established offense. The Miami Dolphins haven't had a running back eclipse 600 yards or see 150-plus carries in a single season since Frank Gore did it in 2018. The Dolphins are well on their way to building a contender in the AFC, and adding offensive firepower is going to be a top priority this offseason. Bringing Bell in to lead the backfield could give them a versatile threat on the ground and for Tua Tagovailoa to use in the passing game.
