Bell isn't a player that's going to start on any team other than maybe the Browns. He's an average player, but that isn't to hate on him. What makes Bell so good to us is his ability as a receiver and how well he fits the system. Bell is worth more to us than any other team in the league.


You could say that about most RBs. Some excel in zone systems, others in power run game... Bell would IMO start on the giants, Chargers, Browns, Packers, broncos, rams, Cardinals, Jets, Dolphins, and Steelers. Maybe the Patriots as well. Although the same can be said for most of the #2s mentioned in this thread. He has easily been the best backup in the league this year.

He reminds me of Pierre Thomas. So NO was also one of the teams I believe he'd be a great fit for.

We'd be lucky to keep him this off season.

Maybe, I don't see him getting a huge offer with all the backs being available. Plus he gets to play at home. There is a chance we lose him, but RBs are about the lowest value in FA.

Better to get them in the lower range as they will become really good. Instead of the higher range where it is all hype and talk.

He's better at fumbling.
