Report: Ravens sign RB Le’Veon Bell to practice squad

Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is joining one of his old team’s biggest rivals.

The Baltimore Ravens are signing Bell to their practice squad Tuesday, with plans to eventually add him to their 53-man roster, ESPN reported.

Bell worked out for Baltimore on Monday, along with free agent running back Devonta Freeman, reports said. Reports also indicate that running back Trenton Cannon was under consideration to help the Ravens, mainly on special teams.

The Ravens lost running backs J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill to season-ending injuries. Dobbins tore his ACL in Baltimore’s preseason finale in August, while Hill reportedly suffered a torn Achilles tendon during a recent practice.

That left Baltimore with only two healthy running backs ahead of Week 1: fourth-year pro Gus Edwards and Ty’Son Williams. Williams has no NFL experience.

Bell, 29, was a two-time All-Pro with the Steelers before he forced his way out of Pittsburgh by holding out for the entire 2018 season. He signed with the New York Jets as a free agent, but was cut last October after 1 1/2 seasons with the team.

Bell then signed with the Kansas City Chiefs and ran for 254 yards and two touchdowns over nine games in the regular season. He was not active on the Chiefs’ game day roster for the AFC Championship Game and did not see the field during their loss in Super Bowl LV.

In seven NFL seasons, Bell has totaled 6,453 rushing yards, 40 rushing touchdowns, plus 3,259 receiving yards and eight touchdown catches.
