ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported earlier on Thursday that the Buffalo Bills are one of three teams that running back Le'Veon Bell was considering signing with, along with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Miami Dolphins.
However, the 28-year-old veteran announced via Twitter later Thursday night that he would be joining the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs.
Bell joins the Chiefs on a one-year deal and will be an unrestricted free agent again at the end of the 2020 season. He will not be allowed into Kansas City's facility for another five days as he is required to go through COVID-19 testing before he can join the team. That will make him ineligible for Monday's game against the Bills in Orchard Park.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed on Thursday that the team did look into adding Bell to the roster, saying, "We always look into every situation, this being one of them. Trying to improve our football team.”
Bell was released by the New York Jets on Tuesday after playing just 17 games in parts of two seasons, rushing for 863 yards and three touchdowns..
