Bengals safety Vonn Bell has coaches excited about his potential impact on the team
The Cincinnati Bengals acquired Vonn Bell in the offseason and they are pretty excited about the safety’s potential impact on the team.
Stories of Bell’s legendary workouts have been circulating around the league. His 4 am workouts prior to team practice is the stuff made of legends. The Bengals are very aware of Bell’s supreme work ethic and they are pumped to have someone like him in the fold.
“He’s a football player in all areas,” Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo said Wednesday, per Laurel Pfahler of Journal-News. “The guy is a workhorse from a meeting standpoint, great communication, great leader and he’s a physical guy. We got younger back there a little bit with him. He’s a good blitzer. I’m just excited to get him and see him move in a live situation. He really brings a bunch of energy and juice to the group. We are excited about him.”
The Bengals picked Bell from the free agent market in March. They agreed to a three-year, $18 million deal. Not only did the deal bring him back to Buckeye State where he spent college, but he also became part of a culture that he had an inkling to.
“I believe in the pieces that they brought into free agency and the guys in the locker room, so I just felt like it was going to be a great mold, and I’m glad to be here,” Bell said. “I think it will be a good mold, what we’re gonna do on the back end and that side of the ball, the 11 that’s gonna be out there, so I’m ecstatic to be out there and I’m just ready to get to work every day.”
From the looks of it, the Bengals and Bell are a match made in heaven. Bengals fans sure have a lot to be pleased about.
