There was a time when Bell was one of the most exciting running backs in the NFL. He was brilliant when he played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and had a career year in 2017. He rushed for over 2,000 yards but proceeded to ruin everything by refusing to sign the franchise tag. Then he sat out for an entire season as he demanded more money.
In the end, he signed for the New York Jets after his Steelers contract expired. This was a disaster because the franchise didn’t know what it was doing under Adam Gase. Finally, he bounced around the league as a backup but barely played again. He sold his soul to the highest bidder and entered the world of celebrity boxing (via Sporting News).
