Denver Broncos sign quarterback after Teddy Bridgewater’s injury
The former all-pro running back Le’Veon Bell will be joining Tom Brady and Bruce Arians as he becomes a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have come to an agreement to sign former All-Pro running back, Le’Veon Bell. This comes amid reports that the Bucs will be without Leonard Fournette due to an injury.
Tampa Bay has struggled with injuries in the late portion of the season, recently losing Mike Evans and Chris Godwin in a Sunday Night Football game with the New Orleans Saints. Where Evans looks set to return from his injury sooner rather than later, Godwin’s torn ACL will end his season.
Bell spent the first few weeks of this season as a part of the Baltimore Ravens, being released right before Week 12. In 2020 Bell was released from his long-term contract with the New York Jets and would finish out the season with the Kansas City Chiefs. Bell is most known, however, for his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers where he became a three-time pro-bowler, a two-time All-Pro, and a two-time offensive player of the year.
Le’Veon Bell challenged Jake Paul or Tyron Woodley to a boxing match on Twitter
This signing will briefly delay Bell’s attempts to switch sports. After Tyron Woodley vs. Jake Paul 2, Bell got on Twitter to criticize and challenge Paul to a fight with him. Of course, this stirred the money printing machine that is Paul, who got the wheels turning on a potential fight between Bell and Woodley.
If Bell were to enter the boxing ring, he would be following in the footsteps of Frank Gore, who actually made his debut as a boxer during the Tyron Woodley vs. Jake Paul 2 event, facing off against former NBA star Deron Williams in an exhibition fight.
