Ravens waive Bell after five games
Le’Veon Bell’s run with the Baltimore Ravens came to a quick end in the 2021-22 season. The star running back just played a total of five games after the team cut him off after the trade deadline. Now he is off to a new chapter in his career as he looks for a new home.
That short spell with the Ravens was one of the fastest for any player in the NFL. Bell is now subject to waivers and is on the prowl to get a new team to play for. If he ever gets lucky, maybe even a new contender can bring him in and give him a chance to play at the highest level.
Bell’s run with the Ravens was still worth it somehow. The star rushed 31 times for 83 yards with an average of 2.7 per attempt. He also had two touchdowns and caught one pass on two targets for -1 yard.
Ever since he sat out the 2018 season when he had a contract dispute with the Pittsburgh steelers, Bell has never been the same in his games. At the age of 29, the star played for the New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, and then the Ravens. He has a tally of 411 yards and four TDs on 113 carries with at least 3.6 yards per contest.
‘This hurts, but it’s been a blessing to be here to say the least’, the star RB said. ‘I’ve enjoyed every second of this short period & gotta have a whole new meaning of what this city is like & it’s a great place to be’.
Bell signed with the Ravens ahead of Week 4 and there was a lot of hope that the veteran star RB could get back to his old form in the team’s rotation. That never took place as Bell had -31 on rushing yards than expected, which only led to a total of 68 yards after contact.
With Bell out, names such as Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman could be the next option to take over the spot left by the star RB. They need to prove that they can be a big help to Lamar Jackson and his scoring antics for the rest of the season.
