Senior NFL reporter for ESPN Jeremy Fowler is reporting today that former Pittsburgh Steeler and NY Jets Running Back Le’Veon Bell is down to 3 teams he may sign with and the Miami Dolphins are one of the three teams on his list. Per the report Kansas City, Miami, and Buffalo are the 3 teams Bell is deciding between.
Le’Veon Bell currently plans to sign with one of three teams, per source: Dolphins, Chiefs, Bills. Barring change, Bell will decide among these teams as early as today. Steelers reunion unlikely at this point.

While Kansas City and Buffalo are teams closer to competing for and winning a Super Bowl this season, Bell spends a lot of time in South Florida and that may be a factor in his decision. Also, Bell may have a larger role in Miami’s offense in 2020 which could play a factor in his decision.
If Miami does sign Bell one would think this would be the end of Jordan Howard in Miami as he was a healthy scratch last week vs San Francisco. The Dolphins can cut Howard and would have no dead money on the salary cap in 2021 and it would free up $5 million in salary cap space.
FYI even if Le’Veon Bell signs with Dolphins say today, he won’t be able to play with Miami against the Jets this week. New COVID-19 NFL rules say new additions have 5 days of testing before allowed in with team.
