Le’Veon Bell is still an available free agent. Bell was once one of the top running backs in the league before he hit free agency in 2019. Now he is waiting for a new team to give him an opportunity. However, the 29-year-old only wants to remind his doubters that he still has a lot left in the tank.

Bell took to Twitter to remind everybody of what to expect this upcoming season. Bell also tweeted that he wants to control his own free agency narrative and sign with the team when he is ready to do so.

“I’ll sign somewhere when IM ready…ain’t no more finessing me with lies and sh*t just to get me to sign with they team…no more rushed decisions on my end, period,” Bell tweeted.

Bell spent the majority of his career in Pittsburgh before signing with the Jets in 2019. He signed a four-year, $52.5 million contract after playing a few seasons on the franchise tag. However, New York let Bell go, and he signed with Kansas City in 2020.

Bell had 254 rushing yards and two touchdowns for the Chiefs, and also played in his first Super Bowl.

Bell blames the Jets play, calling for his lack of production. He says the Jets did not provide him with the same opportunities that the Steelers did.

In five seasons with Pittsburgh, Bell had three years where he rushed for more than 1,200 yards and had three years with more than 75 catches.

Le’Veon Bell may never get back to what he once was. However, he will still bring value to a number of teams, especially the way offenses are using running backs in today’s game.

Training camp is around two months away so Bell has some time to make a free agency decision.
