Former Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell signed with the Buccaneers yesterday, which means he'll reunite with Antonio Brown after four years. Since leaving Pittsburgh, Bell has had stints with the Jets, Chiefs and Ravens, and things ended up not working out any of those places.
At 29, Bell is pretty much washed up and his career is holding onto a thread. In fact, Bell said he was thinking about retiring and turning his attention to boxing prior to signing with the Buccaneers.
“Yeah, I was going to be done. I was at the point where I wasn’t really going to play football," Bell said via Adam Schefter of ESPN. "I was going to focus on boxing. Once you get that phone call – it was like, ‘Oh yes, this is.'"
On Sunday, Bell tweeted that he could beat Logan Paul in a fight. Which came on the heels of Paul knocking out Tyron Woodley on Saturday night.
"I’m tired of watching him out box ppl who don’t even wanna box…if he wanna boxing match, a real one, he’d fight me…period, stop fightin small dudes who can’t box."
Paul responded by saying Woodley would drop Bell faster than the Ravens. Bell tweeted back to Paul, "don't run from the work."
Bell even got into it with Woodley on Twitter and said he'll fight him for charity. Bell said he doesn't need the money because he already got "a bag."
Bell quote tweeted a picture of him shaking hands with Tom Brady on Wednesday, and he looks to be pretty thrilled with his new opportunity in Tampa Bay. With Bell's latest track record, however, we'll have to see how long it lasts.
On Wednesday afternoon, Brown expressed joy and humbleness on Twitter in regards to being reunited with Bell. Two out of the three Killer B's are back together.
