The Kansas City Chiefs acquired Le’Veon Bell on Thursday. How can he help the offense?
Well, well, well. Here we are Kansas City. Last year, the Chiefs were reportedly open to the idea of trading for Le’Veon Bell. This year, it looks like they only need to give up a little cash in order to land the former Chief Killer.
That is a big addition for an offense that has had some ups and downs, despite having a few big stastical games. The problem with the Chiefs offense is that it has been dominant for stretches, and dormant for others. Adding another weapon should be able to help that situation be more consistent.
Listen, I get the analytical side of this. Twitter is currently a wasteland of analytical driven accounts burying this move and more casual fans hyping the signing like Bell is in his prime. Personally, I like this signing, but beside my personal thoughts, the fact is that Bell is a Chief now. So, let’s take all negative generalizations out of this, and look at exactly what Bell will realistically bring to this offense.
That is what I am aiming to do right now. Bell is a big name with past production that is bonkers, and Chiefs fans know this all to well as Bell had some MONSTER games against KC. He isn’t that player anymore, but that isn’t what he is signed to be. He offers so much more to the Chiefs than just a pure running back, so let’s take a look at just what Bell brings to the defending champs.
