I can say with honesty, I dont really know much about him. I know he backed up Forte, and after Forte got injured last year he took over.
This is what NFL.COM had to say about him
Entering his fourth season, Bell was unwilling to have his one-year, $1.26 million deal reduced to $700,000
"He showed promise last season filling in for Forte, rushing for 337 yards on 79 attempts, good enough for 4.3 yards per carry."
Should we take a shot with him? I say yes, he is only 25 and with his 5'-11" 220 pound frame, we can run him til the wheels fall off.
