Terez & Charles debate the possible landing
spots for the former Pro Bowl running back
TEREZ PAYLOR: I spoke to an evaluator today who doesn't think Le'Veon Bell is washed. And that's why I kind of want to talk about some places that I want to see this guy potentially end up.
And I'm going to start in Chicago, because the Bears offensive line is not good, but they are 4-1, and they need help. Next Gen Stats had this-- David Montgomery didn't see a box of eight or more defenders on any of his 10 carries against the Bucs, and he still finished with 29 yards. Start there.
Also keep an eye on Kansas City. I think that, obviously, they're in love with Clyde Edwards-Helaire, you know, but I know they're always looking to try and improve. And I do think there's things that this guy can really do that could help them as a change-of-pace guy. And if Le'Veon Bell wants to resolidify his value, there's hardly a better place to go to than Kansas City. So I think that would be interesting for him.
CHARLES ROBINSON: I would stay the hell away from Chicago. If I am him, I am making this decision, honestly, probably three criteria, and I'll give them to you real quick.
Number one, I want to go to a place where it's a Super Bowl-contending team. Number two, has an offensive line that is, at the very least, serviceable. And then, number three, I want the coordinator who has shown me he can look at an offensive piece on the field, a chess piece, and go, I know exactly what that guy can do. I know exactly how to utilize this.
I love Kansas City. Love Kansas City. And I think you have to have, nowadays, in this league, two running backs.
TEREZ PAYLOR: I've got one more for you. How about Arizona? James Saxon is the Cards current running backs coach. He used to be the Steelers running back coach-- there's a connection there-- and he helped him develop into an All-Pro guy. The Cardinals are solid this year too, man.
CHARLES ROBINSON: I like Arizona because I think that Chase Edmonds is actually their best weapon in the backfield. I'm down on Kenyan Drake. I like Bell because I think Bell fits with Edmonds as well.
TEREZ PAYLOR: There's four more teams that have--
CHARLES ROBINSON: Tell me.
TEREZ PAYLOR: --been linked with him. One of them I don't like, which is San Francisco. Like if I were Le'Veon Bell, I'd kind of stay away from there, because I just-- I feel like they're kind of the snake-bitten-- this is just not the year for it, right? So I'm out on that.
Philly's interesting, because we've talked about him going there before. But like Miles Sanders commands most of the workload and can kind of do everything. I'm a little iffy on that. Where you at on them?
CHARLES ROBINSON: Yeah, I'm out. I'm out. I'm-- keep going.
TEREZ PAYLOR: All right.
CHARLES ROBINSON: I'm good. I mean, I'm not out. That's not my favorite one, but I-- it's an interesting one, but not my favorite.
TEREZ PAYLOR: OK. Someone else brought up the Bills. That's a team, right-- you know, Daboll has done a good enough job designing the offense that I'm sure, if he did have Le'Veon Bell, he could find a way to make that work.
CHARLES ROBINSON: I'm fine with the Bills, but I-- it's because I like this other team. And then Philly-- I don't know, man. Philly feels--
TEREZ PAYLOR: You're just not--
CHARLES ROBINSON: --just messy.
TEREZ PAYLOR: Yeah, I got you.
CHARLES ROBINSON: I think Philly is just such a mess this year.
