The Baltimore Ravens have released running back Le’Veon Bell, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
Bell reacted to the news Tuesday on social media:
Le’Veon Bell @LeVeonBell

Though Bell has been let go, CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson reported the Ravens may look to reunite with the veteran at some point in the future:

My understanding is that the <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Ravens?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#Ravens</a> are still hoping that Le’Veon Bell can come back to their practice squad, at some point. As of right now, they are getting guys back and need the spot.
The 29-year-old was initially signed to the Ravens’ practice squad in September after injuries to J.K. Dobbins, Justice Hill and Gus Edwards. He finally reached the active roster in Week 4 but remained behind Devonta Freeman on the depth chart.
Bell appeared in five games for the Ravens, recording 83 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries. His mark of 2.7 yards per attempt was the lowest in his career.
