Draft Scout Joique Bell News
04/16/13 - RB Joique Bell signed his exclusive rights free agent tender with the Lions.
01/09/13 - RB Joique Bell was the biggest revelation of the year. He produced 899 total yards (414 rushing, 485 receiving) and will have the first shot at being the kick returner next season.
12/24/12 - RB Joique Bell played 42 snaps while starter Mikel Leshoure had only 28. Two reasons for that: Leshoure was benched for a series after fumbling early and the Lions were in full pass mode. Bell is by far the better receiver.
12/17/12 - RB Joique Bell is splitting the running back duties 50-50 with Mikel Leshoure. Bell actually played two more snaps (33 to 31) than Leshoure on Sunday.
12/13/12 - RB Joique Bell, scolded by coach Jim Schwartz for his involvement in a touchdown celebration with Tony Scheffler on Sunday that drew a 15-yard penalty, said his emotions got the best of him.
"I remember playing in the snow as a kid and playing tackle football with my older cousins, and to be able to play at the highest stage, in front of the entire U.S. on national TV, it was a great feeling and emotions run high," Bell said. "That's what the coach is supposed to do. He has high expectations for me, and I have high expectations for myself. After I got that penalty, nobody was harder on me than myself."
