LeSean McCoy isn’t going to be in Buffalo next season, but the Bills will still need a running back. Josh Allen will want someone reliable in the backfield and when the open market hits, no one will be a better option than Bell.
Buffalo is a young team who is hoping to turn themselves around in the future. At some point they should consider making a big move in the free agent market, and Bell is the first name they’ll have on their list.
It’ll come down to pay when they consider signing Bell, but if they can afford him they’ll take a chance. Bell’s worth isn’t $17 million anymore, so it’s more realistic for teams to offer him a contract. Unless he’s too stubborn to realize he’s not helping himself waiting on a paycheck, Buffalo is a strong option.
