Le’Veon Bell on Patrick Mahomes: He might be the greatest player ever

Mike Florio and Chris Simms look at how Patrick Mahomes is seeing defenses differently going into Super Bowl LV and Jason Pierre-Paul's plan for dominating the Chiefs OL.

Le’Veon Bell has only been with the Chiefs for a few months. But it didn’t take him long to learn all he needed to about Patrick Mahomes as a quarterback.

Bell had never played against Mahomes before he signed with Kansas City midseason. But he had been impressed with the QB from afar.

“I’ve always watched him. I always thought he was a great player. Then I came here and then when I came here, that’s when it really hit me, like oh, he might be the greatest player ever,” Bell said. “It’s the way he practices, how he goes about his business. ... I wish y’all could see the throws he does in practice, it would be unbelievable.

“But my idea of [him], I thought he was like a 10 before I came here. And now I think he’s probably like a 12. That’s about it.”

Bell’s scale on that measurement was a little unclear. But the running back is simply saying what we’ve all been watching for the past three seasons when it comes to Mahomes’ greatness.
