Joique Bell is a player that fell off of the radar in 2015, but at 29 years old, and 561 carries under his belt, has gas left in the tank. Bell was released earlier this week by the Lions, as he became an unnecessary piece. Ameer Abdullah emerged in 2015, leading to diminished carries for Bell, and finally to his release. But, Bell is a talented running back.
Joique posted 860 yards on the ground in 2014. From 2013-2014, Bell posted 15 touchdowns, showing a nose for the goal line. In 2012 and 2013, he was a huge part of the passing game, with 52 and 53 receptions each year respectively. This is a player that is versatile, and could easily come in and take the bulk of the carries.
Fear not, Bucs Nation, there are alternatives to Doug Martin.
