One of the quickest offensive weapons in the NFL, Bell has been working all off-season on his speed and agility. You would think dealing with a major knee injury would slow a running back down, but Bell looks just fine. And the 2014 Pro Bowler recently posted some speed workouts on his Instagram to prove it.
