Brandon Bell Reportedly Signs With Cincinnati Bengals

Former Penn State linebacker Brandon Bell is heading to Cincinnati as an undrafted free agent pickup for the Bengals, according to Lions247 reporter Andrew Callahan.

Despite missing a number of games, Bell finished second on the team with 88 tackles during the 2016 season. In his 10 games, the New Jersey native forced three fumbles and had two interceptions — both team highs — and chipped in four sacks.

Bell’s injury woes started during the second game of the season against Pitt, and he missed four contests before returning for a Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week effort against Ohio State. His season ended with an injury during the second half of the Rose Bowl after picking off Sam Darnold. His absence for the remainder of that game was seen as main factor in USC’s comeback.

The biggest concern for the 6-foot-1, 233-pound linebacker is his lack of speed and whether or not he has the athleticism to play sideline to sideline at the next level.
