Most disappointing Kansas City Chiefs – No. 2: Le’Veon Bell
This might not be fair since Le’Veon Bell didn’t spend the entire season with the Chiefs, but I don’t care, I’m including him anyway.
Chiefs fans were ecstatic when the team signed Bell after the Jets released him. Turns out, there was a reason the Jets felt comfortable releasing Bell and that’s because he doesn’t have it anymore. Chiefs fans saw this firsthand, as Bell did very little in his time in Kansas City.
In nine games with the Chiefs, Bell had just 254 yards and two touchdowns with another 99 receiving yards. He didn’t play in the AFC Championship Game or the Super Bowl either, so the Chiefs ended up getting next to nothing out of him.
The Chiefs weren’t a running team and getting Bell was supposed to change that, but it didn’t. He was passed by Darrel Williams on the depth chart and not even playing in Super Bowl LV was proof that the Chiefs wasted money by bringing Bell in.
We saw this same situation transpire with LeSean McCoy last year and it ended in a similar fashion. No more signing older running backs, please.
