Just for once, it'd be nice if the poor get richer. Instead the old saying is very much intact for the Kansas City Chiefs. The rich got richer. Heck you could say they are wealthy after they signed running back Le'Veon Bell. After their Super Bowl win, the Chiefs addressed the running game recognizing it as the area they could improve the most. They drafted National Champion Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the first round and he has only impressed so far with nearly 350 yards in five games. Now with Bell, it's not even fair.
Bell was certainly checked out of New York, where he didn't feel like he was being utilized to his potential. Head coach Adam Gase didn't want to sign Bell for such a large contract signaling this relationship was doomed from the start. Bell goes from the worst and only winless team in the NFL, to the reigning champions.
Edwards-Helaire will still be the main back especially on first and second down situations. But Bell can be their bell cow back when they need short yardage or getting in the endzone. Not to mention this signing opens up the passing game to the best QB in the game. No wonder Patrick Mahomes was so happy.
In Pittsburgh, he was one of the best receiving running backs in the game. That production all but came to a halt with developing QB Sam Darnold and Gase's system. With the Chiefs now, he will have a great QB, a great head coach, and one of the most elite offensive schemes in game. Very similarly to what he had in Pittsburgh. Grass isn't always greener. Except if you're leaving the Jets. That grass is always greener.

Bell's arrival comes at a good time as the Chiefs lost their first game of the season and since November of last year. The offense of course was the problem but the defense just could not contain Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders. He was constantly connecting with rookie receiver Henry Ruggs III showing why he was the first receiver picked in the 2020 draft. The couldn't contain running back Josh Jacobs as he scored two touchdowns.
The Bills won't have the same caliber of running backs as the Raiders but they will bring arguably a better QB in Josh Allen. He can run with the best of them and has one of the best arms in the game. They got humbled though against the Tennessee Titans last week losing 42-16. (Turns out the Titans are the real deal after their deep playoff run last year.) The Chiefs offense is going to be unworldly. If the Bills are going to win, they need to dominate time of possession and keep this offense off the field. Something they couldn't do against the Titans.
