Modern football practice is much different than what it used to be, even in the NFL. Especially in the NFL, that is. But that’s not stopping Le’Veon Bell from asking his teammates to hit him.
The New York Jets’ new running back has joined the team after taking an entire season off and is also being kept out of all preseason games. As a result of that, Bell claims that he needs contact so that he can get used to it ahead of week 1 against the Buffalo Bills. It’s an interesting ask, but it’s also one that makes sense given just how long he has gone without playing a game.
