Joique Bell: Joining injury-depleted Chicago backfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell is signing with the Bears on Tuesday, GQ's Rand Getlin reports.

With Jeremy Langford (ankle) facing an extended absence and Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) potentially also unavailable, the Bears will turn to a player who is familiar to NFC North fans. Bell spent the first four years of his career with Detroit, serving as the team's lead back for much of 2013 and 2014, though he mostly worked in a part-time role in 2012 and 2015. Given Chicago's injury woes, Bell could have an immediate role in the backfield, though he's unlikely to leapfrog rookie Jordan Howard. This isn't too much of a concern for the rookie's owners, as Bell is 30 years old and will have to learn a new playbook.

Joique Bell: Return to Detroit not ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prior to releasing the running back, the Lions offered Joique Bell an opportunity to stay with the team at a reduced rate, which he declined, mlive.com reports.

The move saved the Lions $2.5 million against the team's 2016 salary cap. That said, Bell, who turns 30 in August, hasn't ruled out a potential return to Detroit, but before such a notion is entertained, he'll explore his options as a free agent. Bell is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he averaged just 3.5 yards on 90 carries over the span of 13 contests.

Joique Bell: Released by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions released Joique Bell on Tuesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

In a cost-cutting move, the Lions have decided to move on from Bell, who burst onto the scene during the 2012 season. His production on both the ground and through the air spurred the sides to agree to a two-year extension during the 2014 offseason. However, injuries afflicted him throughout the past campaign, as he managed 90 carries for 311 yards, 22 receptions (on 27 targets) for 286 yards, and four touchdowns across 13 appearances. The 29-year-old back will now aim to join another organization, though a change-of-pace role is likely his ceiling at this point in his career.

Lions' Joique Bell: Scores four times for Lions in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bell wrapped up the 2015 season with 311 yards and four touchdowns on 90 carries and 22 catches for another 286 yards.

For many of Bell's teammates, production started coming along after the Lions' switch at coordinator. Bell started coming around at the same time, but his improvements likely had more to do with getting healthy after battling knee and ankle injuries. Bell was the only Lions back to rack up over 100 total yards in a game, Week 15 against New Orleans, and his four touchdowns also led Detroit backs. Detroit has plenty of talented youth at running back, including Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner, so Bell and his contract could be a cap casualty. If he stays, expect him to continue to be featured in goal-line situations.

Lions' Joique Bell: Totals 58 yards against Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bell caught both of his targets for 49 yards and added three carries for nine yards in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Bell's five touches tied a season low. The veteran back had tallied between seven and eight carries with two catches in each of the five games leading into Sunday. During that time he scored three of his four touchdowns on the season. With younger, cheaper options available in Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner, it wouldn't be a surprise if Bell, who will turn 30 in August, spends next season on another team. Should he move on, he could be considered a value as a goal-line back.
