As a result, Bell took the ball and the Bengals made the trip to Super Bowl LVI.
A year after shaking up their offensive line as a by-product of their humiliating defeat in Super Bowl LV, the Chiefs are tinkering with their receiving corps.
First, they signed JuJu Smith-Schuster for a one-year, $10.75 million deal.
Then, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport revealed who the team signed next.

Rapoport said, “Comeback? The #Chiefs are signing former #Giants WR Corey Coleman, source said. Just 27, Coleman is back in the NFL after a year out.”
The Chiefs have a penchant for giving players a second chance.
Aside from Coleman, they’ve also re-signed Josh Gordon.
If both players played to their potential, the Chiefs will be a scary bunch.
It would be impossible to stop them if Gordon, Coleman, Hill, and Travis Kelce were all having a great game.
A Shot At Redemption
While Coleman was the first wide receiver selected in the 2016 NFL Draft, he is yet to live up to expectations.
In his final year at Baylor, he had 1,363 yards and 20 touchdowns.
His entire NFL numbers are nowhere near those figures.
He is more remembered for that episode in HBO’s “Hard Knocks” wherein he complained due to lack of first-team reps with the Cleveland Browns.
After playing for the Browns, he also joined the New England Patriots but was cut to give way for Gordon.
Coleman also signed up with the New York Giants but played only eight games.
Aside from an ACL injury, he was suspended for six games during the 2021 season due to violations of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
