NFL running back Le’Veon Bell will have to put a hold on his attempts to step in the boxing ring with Jake Paul after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed him on Wednesday. 

The three-time Pro Bowler will be reunited with former Pittsburgh Steelers wide reciver Antonio Brown after lead running back Leonard Fournette suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints that will likely cause him to miss the rest of the season, ESPN reported.

The Kansas City Chiefs picked him up several days later on a one-year contract, but he was not re-signed at the end of the season prompting the veteran back to criticize head coach Andy Reid in a tweet saying he would “retire first” before playing for him again.
