Le’Veon Bell, the former running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, has been rather busy since he last appeared on an NFL field over two years ago.

Bell made an appearance as a milkshake on The Masked Singer in 2022, when she sang “Jump On It” and “What Is Love.”

Bell started his profession in that same year. In the sixth round of an exhibition match, he defeated Adrian Peterson, another All-Pro running back.

He faced former UFC middleweight Uriah Hall a month later, but was defeated unanimously.

He defeated YouTuber JMX in a unanimous decision in 2023.

Bell still seems to be itching to play football, despite everything that has happened.

On his Instagram story on February 3 , Bell revealed that he wants to return to the NFL and hinted that he wants to make that return with the Steelers.

According to Alex Kozora of Steelers Depot, Bell stated, “I won’t start training until like March.” And I have to be honest with myself—I have to step out there and declare that I’m going to make a move. Can I sense it? Do I injure myself? Is it possible for me to return to playing outside? And, dude, I’m telling you all right now that when I train in March and decide in April to return to the NFL, you better take note of what I just said — I will be better than I ever was. And I will only come back for that one team. You all know who iti is. I don’t have to say no team. You all know who it is.”

Bell’s peak performance has been a long time ago.

His last season of over a thousand yards of running was 2017.

After that, in 2019 he averaged 3.2 yards per rush while playing for the Jets.

Before the team cut him, he had not yet completed the second season of a four-year contract in New York.

Following his Chiefs trade, his numbers started to slowly rise again. In Kansas City, he only carried the ball 63 times, but he averaged 4 yards per carry.

He played for both the Buccaneers and Ravens in 2021. He only gained 2.6 yards per carry on average between the two stops.

He hasn’t participated in an NFL game in more than two years.
