Baltimore Ravens part ways with running back Le'Veon Bell

The three-time Pro Bowl selection lasted just five games in Baltimore, amassing a total of 83 yards on 31 carries.

OWINGS MILLS – Former runner of Pro Bowl, Le’Veon Bell, was set free by the Baltimore Ravens this Tuesday, after going through five games to make an impact with the team, revealed a source to Jeremy Fowler from ESPN.

Bell he will be subject to waivers and will become a free agent if he is not claimed by another club.

Bell alluded to his withdrawal on Twitter: “It hurts, but it has been a blessing to be here. I have enjoyed every second of this short period and there is a new meaning to what this city is, and it is a great place. I appreciate Eric [DeCosta, gerente general de los Ravens] and John harbaugh for the chance to be called Raven. “

Bell, 29 years old, showed no big bang in Baltimore, averaging his career-low 2.7 yards per carry (83 yards on 31 attempts). Scored two touchdowns.

The Ravens signed to Bell to his practice squad on September 7 to help his decimated backfield. Bell never played more than a backup role for Baltimore, running after Latavius ​​murray and Devonta freeman in template depth.

The best match of Bell came in Week 9 against the Minnesota Vikings, when he produced 48 rushing yards. But, he never totaled more than 18 yards rushing in any other of his four appearances.

When cutting to Bell, the Ravens they are left with three runners in the roster of 53 players (Murray, Freeman and Ty’Son Williams) and one more in the practice squad (Nate McCrary). After losing his two primordial runners (JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards) for injuries that sidelined them for the entire year since before the start of the regular season, Baltimore he has suffered to get consistent production from his backfield. The corridors of the Ravens have combined for 705 rushing yards, ranking 23rd in the NFL.

For Bell, it is not known whether it will mark the end of his eight-year career in the NFL. In its first five seasons, all with the Pittsburgh steelers, Bell was one of the most prolific and versatile running backs in the league, totaling 5,282 yards (third among all running backs in the NFL). After being ruled out of the 2018 season due to a contract dispute, he never reached the same statistical heights, posting just 1,193 combined yards over the past three seasons (No. 40 among all running backs).

A second-round recruit for the Steelers In 2013, Bell made the Pro Bowl in three of his five seasons in Pittsburgh. But, he has become a nomad since then, going through three teams (the New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs and Ravens) over the past three years.
