Free agent Joique Bell wants to play this season.
"There are a ton of guys in the league that know what I can do, coaches and GMs. Just waiting on that call," said Bell in a radio interview. Bell didn't sign until Week 4 last year and looked washed up on his limited snaps. There’s been no interest in him from teams this offseason. Jul 14 - 7:02 PM

Lions signed RB Joique Bell.

It's an indication Dwayne Washington (ankle) will miss Week 14. Completely washed, Bell is unlikely to see a carry behind Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 02:50:00 PM

Free agent RB Joique Bell is expected to sign with the Packers on Monday.

Bell was unable to do anything with the Bears during a cup of coffee earlier this season, and he has not been an effective player for several years. He will be nothing but an emergency backup for a banged up backfield. Bell is not worth adding in any format.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 10:00:00 AM

Bears released RB Joique Bell.

It may be a sign that Jeremy Langford (ankle) is nearing his return.
Mon, Oct 24, 2016 05:19:00 PM

Bears signed RB Joique Bell.

Bell hasn't been an effective player since 2012, averaging 3.8 yards per carry over the past three seasons, but the Bears needed to add a back with Jeremy Langford (ankle) and Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) down. Bell will probably have an immediate Week 4 role behind Jordan Howard, but won't be a recommended fantasy option in any format. Bell's arrival doesn't ding Howard's upside. Someone has to back the rookie up.
Tue, Sep 27, 2016 02:11:00 PM

Free agent Joique Bell worked out for the Lions on Tuesday.

Ameer Abdullah (foot) appears poised to miss Week 3, leaving the Lions a man short at running back. Bell hasn't been an effective player in four years, but knows the Lions' offense. Were Bell to re-sign, he'd back up Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington.
Tue, Sep 20, 2016 04:57:00 PM

Free agent Joique Bell says he has at least two contract offers.

Bell hasn't had any reported interest since visiting Buffalo back in March. He'll likely sign for a minimum salary coming off his down 2015. 29-year-old Bell should land a deal before training camp.
Sat, Jun 4, 2016 06:05:00 PM

Free agent Joique Bell is visiting the Bills.

Bell broke into the NFL with the Bills back in 2010 as an UDFA but was cut ahead of Week 1 and spent a couple weeks on the practice squad before signing with the Eagles. Bell would be nothing more than depth again.
Tue, Mar 15, 2016 08:39:00 PM

The Lions offered RB Joique Bell a pay cut before releasing him.

The Lions weren't willing to pay Bell's full $2.5 million salary but they left the door open for him to return at a reduced cost. Bell declined and will now test free agency. "They did what was best for the organization and I did what I thought was best for my family," said Bell. "You never know, I might end up back with the Lions." Bell's phone won't be ringing off the hook after posting a tepid 3.45 yards per carry in 2015. Re-signing Bell wouldn't make much sense for the Lions, who return Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner at running back.

Lions released RB Joique Bell.

It's a no-brainer move for the Lions, who move forward with Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner at running back. Releasing Bell creates $2.5 million in cap space. Going on 30, Bell seemed out of gas in 2015, battling injury and averaging an anemic 3.45 yards per carry. Bell boasts a sub-par 3.98 YPC for his career. Abdullah should get the first crack on early downs, but Zenner could also get a shot. Bell's phone should be silent through the early weeks (months?) of free agency.
Tue, Feb 16, 2016 05:20:00 PM

Joique Bell says he's as healthy as he's been in four years.

Bell underwent three minor surgeries last winter, and never seemed 100 percent during the regular season. Going on 30, Bell averaged just 3.45 yards on his 90 2015 carries. Despite his apparent good health, Bell's roster spot is on extremely thin ice. The Lions could save $2.5 million by cutting him loose. With Ameer Abdullah and Zach Zenner both returning, we'd expect that's what they will do.
Mon, Jan 25, 2016 02:10:00 PM

Joique Bell rushed three times for nine yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for 49 yards in the Lions' Week 17 win over the Bears.

After undergoing numerous offseason knee and Achilles' surgeries, Bell was painful to watch for most of the 2015 season. He seemed to find his legs a bit down the stretch, but by then it was too late. Joique wound up as a lightly used short-yardage specialist and committee member along with Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. Bell finishes 2015 at 311 yards and four touchdowns on 90 runs (3.45 YPC), adding 22 receptions. Turning 30 before next season and owed a $2.5 million base salary, Bell's return to Detroit is questionable.
Sun, Jan 3, 2016 05:09:00 PM

Joique Bell rushed seven times for 13 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-3 targets for nine yards in the Lions' Week 16 win over the 49ers.

Although he has mixed in a few decent games over the course of the season, for the most part Bell has been one of the league's least effective running backs. Bell is owed a $2.5 million base salary in 2016. It's possible Week 17 against the Bears will be Joique's final game in a Lions uniform.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 05:10:00 PM

Joique Bell collected 71 yards and a touchdown on eight carries and caught two of three targets for 30 yards in the Lions' Week 15 win over the Saints.

This was easily his best game of the season. The Saints were putting together a nice comeback before Bell blew out the candles with a late touchdown. That came only a few plays after Bell coughed up the ball, though the Lions recovered it. With Detroit needing only a first down to seal the game, Bell pushed the ball forward with an impressive 36-yard gain with less than two minutes remaining. Bell has totaled 176 yards from scrimmage over his last two games but won’t be anything more than an RB4 next week against the 49ers.
Tue, Dec 22, 2015 12:18:00 AM

Joique Bell rushed seven times for 50 yards and secured two targets for 25 yards in the Lions' Week 14 loss to the Rams.

Bell broke loose for an 18-yard gain in the third quarter. It was his second-longest run of the season. Aside from that, Bell was mostly held in check. He and rookie Ameer Abdullah both finished with nine touches. Even with a great matchup against the Saints in Week 15, Bell won’t be worth your time in fantasy.
