The Ravens have signed free agent running back Le’Veon Bell to their practice squad, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Having lost RBs J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hall to season-ending injuries, the Ravens are signing veteran RB Le’Veon Bell to their practice squad, per source. He soon is likely to be added to the 53-man roster when ready.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 7, 2021
Bell will likely be signed to the Ravens 53-man roster soon after. This news comes after it was reported yesterday that Bell practiced with the Ravens, alongside fellow veteran Devonta Freeman.
With running backs J.K Dobbins and Justice Hill both injured, Bell will likely accompany Gus Edwards and Ty’Son Williams as the third and final running back on the roster.
Bell’s past few years have been less admiral, however, as he sat out 2018 due to contract negotiations with Steelers, before eventually signing a four-year contract with the New York Jets in 2019. Bell was released by the Jets two years later and finally signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he played only 12 games.
Bell now finds himself on his third roster in four years, and as the clock winds on the veteran’s career, his performance in Baltimore this season will likely affect the future of his career. Baltimore is the best-run scheme Bell has been in since he left Pittsburgh, so a change in his recent efficiency could be on the horizon.
