2019 Free Agent Profile: Le'Veon Bell


After sitting out the entire 2018 season, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell will finally hit free agency. Bell, the three-time Pro-Bowler, sat out the entirety of the season due to contractual differences between himself and the Steelers.

Prior to sitting out all of last season, Bell was regarded as one of, if not the, best running backs in the entire NFL. In 2017, Bell had 321 carries for 1,291 yards and nine touchdowns. He also caught 85 passes for 655 yards and two touchdowns that season.

In his two other Pro Bowl seasons, Bell combined for 551 rushes for 2,629 yards and 15 TDs, while catching 158 passes for 1,470 yards and five touchdowns. Throughout his five years of playing in the NFL, Bell has a career total of 5,336 rushing yards on 4.3 yards per carry, 35 rushing touchdowns and 312 receptions for 2,660 receiving yards and seven receiving touchdowns.
