Le’Veon Bell fired up to team with Clyde Edwards-Helaire after watching big game vs. Bills
New Kansas City Chiefs running back Le’Veon Bell is already hyped as he comes close to joining his new team in the coming days. He was also all eyes as the reigning Super Bowl champions blasted the Buffalo Bills in their Week 6 matchup en route to a 26-17 victory.
The three-time Pro Bowler took to Twitter to express his excitement as the newest member of the Chiefs:
I can’t wait 😍

After being released by the New York Jets, the Chiefs added more firepower to their roster by electing to sign Bell to a one-year, $1 million contract. The base salary of the contract will be prorated based on the five games that he has already played for the Jets this season.
With his veteran experience, the three-time Pro Bowler is expected to take the rookie rusher under his wing for the coming season. Edwards-Helaire made the most out of his opportunities and led the rushing attack against the Bills with 161 rushing yards on 26 carries. Seldom-used Darrel Williams also contributed with 26 yards on six touches and a scored touchdown for the Chiefs.
After a tumultuous two-year run with Gang Green, the Ohio native will finally have an opportunity to contribute to a winning team and have a shot at a Super Bowl appearance. Hopefully, it will be the start of a fruitful partnership between the Bell and the Chiefs moving forward.
