The Bills are taking an interest in free agent running back Le'Veon Bell.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed today that the Bills have looked at signing Bell, who was cut by the Jets yesterday.

“We always look into every situation, this being one of them. Trying to improve our football team — that’s all I can say right now,” McDermott said, via Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.

Although he was a first-team All-Pro in 2014 and 2017, it’s been a long time since Bell looked like one of the league’s elite running backs. He sat out the 2018 season in a contract dispute with the Steelers and has struggled with the Jets in 2019 and 2020.

Now he’ll try to convince some team that he can play at a high level. Perhaps that team can be the Bills.

  1. A former All-Pro 6’1” pass-catching threat out of the backfield is EXACTLY the player our offense needs.

    “But he was soooo bad on the Jets.”

    Yeah keyword “Jets”. Head coach : Adam Gase.

  2. Adam Gase admitted that he misused Bell and people are still using his performance of the past two years against him.

    His coach is on record talking about sabotaging his talents and yet can’t understand why he would be unproductive and unhappy.

  3. his best choice is to go to the Chiefs……they are still the best team in the AFC and maybe all of football. I say that as a Denver Bronco fan

  4. I mean, the question for Buffalo is, is he better than TJ Yeldon. Im not high on this signing, the Bills have higher priorities and need the money for key pieces next year

  5. it’s been a long time since Bell looked like one of the league’s elite running backs

    Veteran’s minimum or slightly higher for THIS year. There is no long term commitment anticipated, as this would be a SHOW US deal. Bell may have the worst agent in the NFL, and he clearly had one of the worst head coaches, but if he is even half of what he was 2 years ago he is a huge upgrade over TJ Yeldon and a rookie who can’t stay healthy.

  7. Maybe he can join AB and reminisce about the good old days and how everyone except them are idiots.
