I thought he was a free agent immediately. 

No one will pick him up, he will be officially a FA as of 4pm EST today.

Anyone who picks him up via waiver is liable for his contract's injury clause in 2021 for $8m. That was the clause that was stifling any trade negotiations.

Won't clear waivers till 4pm EST today

 

He's a vested veteran so he isn't subject to waivers.

 

He becomes a free agent at 4pm due to league rules.

Chiefs make absolute sense given championship aspirations and a lack of depth in the backfield. As noted, they were also in on Fournette. 

I assume Bell will be looking for run on a contender, or at least competitive, team.

yep, as loony as it looks, i can see this playing out as such. 

 

still think Hoodie signs him to play keep away more than anticipating return to Stillers form.

The likeliest scenario is that Bell sits out for the rest of 2020.  No team except the Jets wanted him prior to 2019, and now even they have moved on.

If Bell does sign somewhere, it will be the team's choice, not his.  Beggars cannot be choosers.  There will be no bidding war.

And in the unlikely event Bell does sign, he will still be unproductive.  He is only a shell of the player he once was.

 

So, conspiracy theory, @SharkSwimmer is really Adam Gase (😱!!) and the only reason he cut Bell is to look good in these Forums, but now that it's backfired he's smearing Bell in the Forums.  Get back to coaching, coach!!

 

Kidding Shark, I like your analysis ... most of the time ......  😂

Love how Leveon and AB are on the street and Big Ben is 4-0 with a 10/1 TD to INT ratio coming off elbow surgery at 38. The Steelers are probably second only to the Pats in knowing just when to cut bait on these bums. 

Is anyone worried here about any of their RB's potentially being hurt by a signing? The Bears are somehow 4-1 but David Montgomery again looks like he's running in quicksand and they have no depth. I could see Nagy bringing him in for a pass catching role, he's probably still better than Montgomery in that regard and it limits the amount of touches for Montgomery, can't imagine the Bears want him handing this much of a workload when they don't have a capable backup on the roster.

Yes very concerned where Bell ends up...

I don't think he's going to have the luxury of being that picky.  He is going to go to whatever team will have him.

That said, I do think the Chiefs may be that team.

I don’t understand this thinking.

Price influences demand. People who are saying "only one team wanted him in 2019" should pump the breaks and ask if emotion is baked into there assertion. Otherwise, I have a $10,000 Bud Light with your name on it.

usually there's a "field" option 🤷‍♂️

not seeing Buffalo or Chargers on there is certainly sobering, and has me taking the field.

Not sure I follow your logic but I appreciate the shout-out.

As for Gase, we all rip on him, and rightly so.  But I would gladly trade careers with him.  He has made millions and millions of dollars and he is the head coach of a team in the highest league of the best sport in the world.
