It was a rushed answer at the end of a rapid-fire segment, and he didn't explain his thinking.
But it could be good news for Bucs fans.
Albert Breer of The Monday Morning Quarterback, appearing Wednesday on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, predicted that Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell will play for the Bucs next season.
In the segment, Cowherd asks Breer two questions and is looking for quick, 10-15-second answers. Most of the segment focuses on the next Packers head coach.
But it's all prelude to the big reveal.
"Le'Veon Bell next year is the starting running back for … " Cowherd prompts.
"Tampa Bay Buccaneers," Breer responds, without hesitation.
Bell, of course, sat out all of this season after choosing not to sign his franchise tender by the NFL deadline in November. He will become an unrestricted free agent in March, assuming the Steelers choose not to use a franchise or transition tag on him.
A three-time Pro Bowler, Bell's 1,946 total yards from scrimmage in 2017 ranked second in the NFL.
