The duo of Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown 

Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown played together from 2013 to 2017 with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both of them are problem children, but there is no denying that together they are unstoppable. When they played together in Pittsburgh, Le’Veon made 35 touchdowns and rushed for 5,336 yards. Antonio made 67 touchdowns and received 7,848 yards. Will they be able to possess the same magic for the Buccaneers? That remains to be seen. 

After leaving the Steelers, Le’Veon Bell played for the New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, and Baltimore Ravens. He played five games with the Ravens this season. In those games, he made two touchdowns, rushed for 83 yards, and had 31 carries. Bell has played 118 snaps for the Ravens.

Antonio, on the other hand, has been cleared to compete again. He suffered an injury, and he was serving a suspension as well. The last game he played was the week 6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The wide receiver has 29 passes caught for 418 yards and four touchdowns to his name.
