Le'Veon Bell might by the most dynamic player in football, and he's at odds with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson believes he has the perfect landing place for the Pro Bowler: New England.

Speaking to TMZ Sports (as recapped by clutchpoints.com), Dickerson laid out one potential path for Bell, who failed to reach a contract extension with the Steelers by Monday's deadline for players on the franchise tag.

"You got to go where the team wants you the most," Dickerson said. "For sure, the Steelers are the best for him because that offensive line knows him and he knows that offensive line. It's always best if you can stay with a team forever. I wish I could have stayed with the Rams, but it didn't work out like that. Different time. Different era. If he doesn't, the Patriots would be a good team."

Bell has repeated that he wants to finish his career in Pittsburgh, but after failing to agree on an extension -- he reportedly wants $14 million annually -- he's now in a position to become a free agent next winter. Could the Patriots come calling for the shifty, do-it-all running back? Considering that New England is the team that shocked the NFL by adding Corey Dillon, Randy Moss, and Darrelle Revis, among others, anything is possible.
