Ten weeks after joining the Baltimore Ravens practice squad, the team has parted ways with running back Le’Veon Bell.
this hurts, but it’s been a blessing to be here to say the least, i’ve enjoyed every second of this short period & gotta whole new meaning of what this city is like & it’s a great place to be I appreciate Eric Decasta & John Harbaugh for the opportunity to be called an Raven pic.twitter.com/428poGYsNO— Le'Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) November 16, 2021
The Ravens have released Le'Veon Bell, per source. Bell alluded to this on his social media. Bell played in five games for Baltimore with 83 rushing yards and two touchdowns.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) November 16, 2021
The Ravens originally signed Bell after a slew of injuries to the running back room, including J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.
Bell’s tenure with the Ravens was short-lived. He played in five games and amassed 83 yards and two rushing touchdowns on 31 carries. His second touchdown was a go-ahead touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings late in the fourth quarter, before the Vikings responded and forced overtime.
Against the Miami Dolphins four days later, Bell struggled to gain any yards on the ground, with three carries going for only one yard.
Much of the burst and elusiveness Bell showed for years when competing against the Ravens was not replicated, and ultimately, the Ravens will be looking to others on their roster or free agency to help for the second-half stretch of the 2021 season.
Bell departs from the Ravens and now looks for his fourth team in four years after holding out in 2018 due to contract disputes with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
