Le'Veon Andrew Bell (/ˈlviɒn/ LAY-vee-on;[1] born February 18, 1992) is an American football running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Michigan State, and was drafted by the Steelers in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

High school career[edit]

Bell attended Groveport Madison High School in Groveport, Ohio, where he played football, basketball, and ran track. He played running back for the Groveport Cruisers football team. As a sophomore, Bell ran for 789 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. As a junior, Bell ran for 1,100 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns, and as a senior, Bell ran for 1,333 yards on 200 carries with 21 touchdowns.

Considered a two-star recruit by, Bell was listed as the No. 211 running back in the nation in 2010.[3] Although he was a 3-year starter in high school, Bell had limited scholarship offers from Bowling Green, Marshall, and Eastern Michigan, but he hoped to attend Ohio State. Bell's high school principal, Donis Toler Jr., believed he was under-recruited and reached out to Michigan State's head coach Mark Dantonio. Although Dantonio had heard of Bell, they had never scouted him personally or had thought of offering him a scholarship. With football season over, Dantonio sent his running back's coach to scout Bell at his high school basketball game.[4] After he finished his senior football season, he finally received a scholarship offer from Michigan State after a number of players had got into trouble and had open scholarships available with a need at running back.[5] In 2010, he graduated from high school early and began attending Michigan State that spring semester.[6]

College career[edit]

Bell enrolled in Michigan State University, where he played for the Michigan State Spartans football team from 2010 to 2012.

Against the Minnesota Golden Gophers, he had 165 all-purpose yards (96 rushing, 38 receiving, and 31 kickoff return yards) and two total touchdowns in the game.[7] Against #18 Georgia in the 2012 Outback Bowl, Bell rushed for 48 yards on 17 carries with two touchdowns and had five receptions for 39 yards in Michigan State's 33–30 victory.[8]

Junior season[edit]

Against Eastern Michigan in 2012, Bell ran for a career-high 253 yards while also claiming the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week Award.[9] He finished the season with 1,793 rushing yards, which led the Big Ten.[10][11] He was voted to the First Team All-Big Ten by the coaches and media,, College Football News, and Phil Steele.[8]

After his junior season in 2012, Bell decided to forego his senior season and entered the 2013 NFL Draft.[12]

Professional career[edit]

Coming out of Michigan State, Bell was projected by the majority of analysts to be a second or third round selection. He was ranked as the fifth best running back by and ranked the best overall running back by NFL analyst Bucky Brooks.[13][14] He received an invitation to the NFL Combine and participated in all workouts and positional drills. Bell was satisfied with his combine performance and only performed positional drills at Michigan State's Pro Day.[15] Bell, Dion Sims, William Gholston, Johnny Adams, and five other Michigan State prospects worked out in front of scouts and representatives from 29 NFL teams.[16] The only head coach that attended was Pittsburgh Steelers' head coach Mike Tomlin.[16] Scouts considered Bell a big bruising back with quick feet and lower body strength and also gave him positive reviews for his ability to run north-south, for his strong cuts, and nice bursts through holes. The only negative reviews were based on his limited ball-carrier vision, inconsistent blocking, and his height that would possibly affect his speed and ability to dodge tacklers.[15]

Bell was selected in the second round with the 48th overall pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2013 NFL Draft.[17] On June 3, 2013, the Pittsburgh Steelers signed Bell to a four-year, $4.12 million rookie contract that includes $2.27 million guaranteed and a signing bonus of $1.37 million.[18][19]

2013 season[edit]

He entered training camp competing with veteran Isaac Redman for the Steelers' starting running back position.[20] In his second preseason game against the Washington Redskins, Bell was tackled on a running play and suffered a mid-foot sprain. His injury did not require surgery, but forced him to miss the first three weeks of the regular season.

On September 29, 2013, Bell appeared in his first career game at Wembley Stadium and rushed for 57 yards on 16 carries and a season-high two rushing touchdowns while also catching four receptions for 27 yards against the Minnesota Vikings. His first career touchdown came on an eight-yard run in the first quarter of the game and the Steelers lost, 34–27, in his first career start. Pittsburgh chose to release Isaac Redman on October 21, 2013. On November 28, 2013, Bell had 16 carries for 73 yards and ran for a season-long 43-yard touchdown, while also racking up a season-high seven catches for 63-yards during a 22–20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. During a Week 16 matchup against the Green Bay Packers, he had a season-high 26 carries for 124 yards and a rushing touchdown. On December 29, 2013, in a game against division rival Cleveland Browns, Bell was able to break Steeler's legend Franco Harris’s rookie record for total yards from scrimmage with a total of 1,259 yards.[21]

He finished his rookie season with 244 carries, 860 rushing yards, and eight rushing touchdowns. He also had 45 receptions for 399 yards and started the last 13 games of the season.[22]

2014 season[edit]

Bell began his second season as a starter in the season opener against the Cleveland Browns and finished the game with 21 carries, 109 rushing yards, a rushing touchdown, and six receptions for 88 yards in a 30–27 victory.[23] On September 21, 2014, Bell and LeGarrette Blount both rushed for over 100 yards each against the Carolina Panthers. He finished the 37–19 victory with 21 carries for 147 rushing yards.[24] On October 20, 2014, Bell had 8 catches for 88 yards and made his first career touchdown reception in a 30–23 victory over the Houston Texans. He became the first running back in Steelers' history to have seven consecutive games with 100 yards from scrimmage. Bell had his best game of the season, statistically, against the Tennessee Titans on November 17, 2014, gaining 204 rushing yards on a season-high 33 carries as well as a rushing touchdown.

On November 30, 2014, Bell had a season-high eight receptions for 159 receiving yards while also accounting for 21 carries, 95 rushing yards, and a rushing touchdown in a 35–32 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The next game, he carried the ball 26 times for 185 yards and made six catches for 50 yards while also scoring three total touchdowns in a 42–21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Bell tied Walter Payton for most consecutive games with 200 or more yards from scrimmage with three after his performance against the Bengals. On December 29, Bell was injured against the Cincinnati Bengals as he hyperextended his knee when being tackled by safety Reggie Nelson. Bell didn’t play against the Ravens in the Wild Card round of the 2014 playoffs, so the Steelers signed veteran and former Cleveland Browns' running back Ben Tate.[24]

Bell broke out in the 2014 season, going from rookie to All-Pro, finishing second in rushing yards, yards from scrimmage, and all-purpose yards to Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray. He led all running backs in receiving yards and yards per reception.[22][25] He finished the season averaging 4.7 rushing yards per carry (YPC), up from 3.5 YPC in 2013.[26] Bell finished his first complete regular season with a career-high 290 carries, 1,361 rushing yards, 8 rushing touchdowns, 83 receptions, 854 receiving yards, and 3 receiving touchdowns.

2015 season[edit]

After being arrested with then-teammate LeGarrette Blount on DUI and marijuana possession charges in August 2014, Bell was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the 2015 regular season. On April 9, 2015, it was reported that the suspension was reduced to three games. On July 28, 2015, Bell's suspension was reduced from three games to two following a successful appeal.[27]

Bell made his season debut against the St. Louis Rams on September 27, 2015. He finished the game with 19 carries for 62 yards and scored his first rushing touchdown of the season, while also accounting for seven catches for 70 receiving yards. The following week, he had 22 rushing attempts for a season-high 129-yards and a touchdown in a 23–20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. On October 12, 2015, Bell had 21 rushes for 111 rushing yards and scored a last-second game-winning touchdown run out of the wildcat formation, helping the Steelers defeat the San Diego Chargers 24–20.[28] During a Week 6 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, Bell rushed a season-high 24 times and finished the game with 88 rushing yards.[29]

On November 1, 2015, Bell suffered a season-ending torn MCL during the second quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals, after taking a tackle from linebacker Vontaze Burfict. The following day, the Steelers placed him on injured-reserve, effectively ending his season. He finished his season with a total of 113 rushing attempts for 556 rushing yards and three touchdowns and 24 receptions for 136 receiving yards in six games and six starts.

On November 6, 2015, it was reported by NFL Network analyst Jason La Canfora that Bell had undergone surgery to repair damage to the MCL/PCL. He was able to return in time for the 2016 offseason.[30] Despite the injury, he was ranked 41st by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2016.[31]

2016 season[edit]

On August 19, 2016, Bell was officially suspended for the first three games of the 2016 regular season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He stated in an apology on Twitter, that the suspension was due to a missed random drug test in December. The original suspension was four games, but was reduced to three on appeal and as a part of a settlement between the league and the NFL Player's Association.[32]

He played in his first game of the season on October 2, 2016, and had 18 carries, 144 rushing yards, 5 catches, and 34 receiving yards in a 43–14 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. In a Week 7 matchup against the New England Patriots, Bell caught a career-high 10 passes for 68 receiving yards and had 21 carries for 81 rushing yards in a 27–16 loss. On November 13, 2016, Bell carried the ball 17 times for 57 rushing yards and scored his first rushing touchdown of the season during a 30–35 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He also accounted for nine receptions for 77 receiving yards and caught his first receiving touchdown of the season during the game. The next game, he had 28 carries for 146 yards and a touchdown during a 24–9 victory over the Browns.[29]

On December 11, 2016, against the Buffalo Bills, Bell broke the Pittsburgh Steelers' franchise record for rushing yards in a game with 236 rushing yards on a career-high 38 carries while scoring three touchdowns. The previous record was set by Willie Parker when he rushed for 223 yards in 2006.[33] He was named as the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Week 14.[34] Bell was named to his second Pro Bowl on December 20, 2016.[35] Bell finished the 2016 regular season with 261 carries for 1,268 rushing yards and seven touchdowns, while also making 75 catches for 616 receiving yards and two touchdowns in 12 games and 12 starts. He also had a career-high four fumbles and lost only one. Despite missing 4 of 16 games, he finished 3rd in the NFL (and 95th all-time) with 1,884 yards from scrimmage.

On January 8, 2017, Bell started in his first career playoff game and finished with 29 carries for a playoff franchise-record 167 rushing yards and two touchdowns in a 30–12 defeat of the Miami Dolphins in the AFC Wild Card game. His first career playoff touchdown came on a 1-yard run in the second quarter and he also caught two passes for seven yards.[36] After the game, it was reported that the Pittsburgh Steelers will use their franchise tag on Bell while attempting to reach an agreement on a long-term contract.The next week, he broke his own team record with 170 rushing yards on 30 carries in an 18–16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round. As the first NFL player to rush over 150 yards in his first two playoff games, he set a record for most rushing yards in the first two playoff games, became one of four players to ever rush for 150+ yards in back to back playoff games, and one of three players with two 160+ yard playoff games in a career.[37] However, he suffered a groin injury late in the game, which grew unmanageable during the championship game loss to the New England Patriots, and he was forced to leave in the second quarter.[38]

2017 season[edit]

On February 27, 2017, the Steelers placed the franchise tag on Bell.[39] On September 24, 2017, Bell had six receptions for 37 receiving yards, 15 carries for 61 rushing yards, and scored his first touchdown of the season on a one-yard run as the Steelers were defeated by the Chicago Bears, 23–17.[40] The following week, he had a season-high 35 carries for 144 rushing yards and two touchdowns during the Pittsburgh Steelers 26–9 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.[41] Bell was limited to just 47 rushing yards in Week 5's 30–9 loss to Jacksonville, but became the first running back to record 10 receptions in the 2017 season.[42] In Week 6, Bell rushed for 179 yards in a 19–13 win over the Chiefs, earning him AFC Offensive Player of the Week.[43][44][45] At that point in 2017, it was the second most rushing yards in a game to the 181 Leonard Fournette accumulated against Bell's Steelers the previous week.[46] With 134 yards in Week 7,[47] Bell joined Jerome Bettis (in 1997) as the only other Steeler with three 125+ yard rushing games in the first seven of a season.[48] After 76 yards and a touchdown against Detroit[49], and a bye, Bell had 80 rushing yards and 32 receiving yards to contribute to a 20-17 victory over Indianapolis.[50] In Week 11, Bell again achieved 100 yards from scrimmage with 46 yards rushing and 57 receiving against Tennessee. The next week against Green Bay was even more productive, with 95 yards rushing and 88 receiving on a season-high 12 receptions.[51] During Monday Night Football against the Bengals in Week 13, Bell provided 182 total yards of offense, with 106 receiving yards, 76 rushing yards, and a touchdown, as the Steelers won 23–20. In Week 14 against the Ravens, Bell carried 13 times for 48 yards with two touchdowns and caught an additional 9 receptions for 77 yards and another touchdown, which was enough to win against the Ravens 39–38.[52]

Le'Veon Bell was born February 18, 1992, in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, to Lisa A. Bell.[8] His mother and grandfather have been lifelong Pittsburgh Steelers fans.[53] Throughout his childhood, his mother raised Bell and his siblings by herself and struggled financially.[54] Bell has two older sisters and two younger brothers, both of whom also play football. He cites his high school principal, Donis Toler Jr., and his mother as the two people responsible for helping him achieve his success. Toler was a father figure in Bell's life and helped him get noticed by Michigan State.[55]

He has numerous tattoos including two scriptures. He has Jeremiah 1:5 on his left arm with a picture of his mother embracing him after Michigan State suffered a loss in the Big Ten Championship.[56] Bell also has John 3:16 on his left arm, along with "That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life."[55]

On August 20, 2014, Bell was driving with his then-Steelers teammate LeGarrette Blount and an unidentified woman, when he was pulled over by the police. The officer searched the car after he claimed to notice the smell of marijuana.[57] The search yielded 20 grams of marijuana, and the three were arrested for marijuana possession. Bell was sentenced to 15 months of probation, a 60-day suspension of his driver's license, DUI education classes, and $2,400 in court costs.[58]

Bell is active in charity work and fundraisers. He works with PETA and posed for one of the organization's advertisements, which showed him without a shirt with a caption saying, "I choose ink, not mink... Because animals deserve better!"[59]
