Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell Shows Impressive Footwork In Latest Videos

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year running back Le’Veon Bell will be in Latrobe for the start of training camp later this week, but on Sunday, the Michigan State product gave us a small glimpse on his Instagram account of what he’s been working on since the mandatory mini camp wrapped up.

Below are two videos that Bell posted that show him working on improving his footwork and change of direction and they’re really quite impressive. He has been training this offseason with Pete Bommarito in Florida once again.

Bell rushed for 860 yards last year as a rookie despite missing the first three games of the season with a foot sprain. He also chipped in another 399 yards on 45 receptions. Bell’s 1,259 total yards from scrimmage were the most ever by a Steelers rookie running back in the history of the franchise, besting the mark set by Franco Harris in 1972 when he gained 1235 yards in 14 games.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    I don’t give any of this kind of thing much weight. Remember Ziggy Hood’s video’s he would post of his work outs? He still sucked.

  • ApexSteel

    He wasn’t a good scheme fit, but I see what you mean. Le’Veon was already a productive starter though.

  • Matt Manzo

    Jerome Bettis feet and Eddie George’s body?! Here we come!!!

    Nifty

    Ziggy was not a 3-4 guy. I bet Ziggy is going to be a beast in Jax

    Yessir!

    Strength and agility are two different things. If you’re running back had a promising rookie year and is showing footwork and coordination like this then I think it’s okay to buy into it.

  • James Goins

    No matter what you think of video, you have to like the fact that the kid is apparently working really hard to improve on what was already a strong season considering what he was up against. I much rather see him “working out” than “hanging out” like Johnny Football.

    More important is the fact that he seems to be working hard.

    Thats a tall order!

    Some people let the NFL define them, others try to define the NFL. I’ll take the latter.

  • Jacque Strappe

    Well said.

  • Milliken Steeler

    Ditto. Ziggy will do well in Jacksonville, just watch.

  • steeltown

    Very nice.. crazy agility for a 240lber

  • steeltown

    Indeed

  • WilliamSekinger

    I’ll be happy if that translates to the field. Heck, I’ll be happy if he has a slightly better season than he had last year. I’ll be ecstatic if he has a monster season. Workout videos are ok, but nothing says improvement better than production numbers.

  • Anthony Tudi

    The videos are impressive but what’s more impressive is how bad he wants to get better even after a good first season. This team needs hungry players

  • James Goins

    It’s not so much a matter of definition, but dedication. And while the brief images of these two young men don’t ensure either, the image of “working out” certainly seems much more professionally appealing.

  • chris ward

    Great work ethic from Bell, has a ton of upside at his young age. Looking for a big year from Bell, after an impressive rookie season.

  • Pitfan0513

    Glad he’s on our squad!

  • Xclewsive

    I compare these videos not to Ziggy Hood, but Antonio Brown’s videos. A already budding player headed for stardom.

  • Dewayne Braxton

    Being in an unfavorable scheme still wouldn’t make him play like a a bumb. Defensive line man never go from bust to beast. Ziggy was a bust. No excuses needed. Another bad draft pick. No

  • Dewayne Braxton

    Or like Ben hanging out with fat guys we call lineman who clearly should’ve been doing what Bell is doing.

  • Sean Mahoney

    He posted a video a couple months ago of himself getting on a scale. He’s actually down to 220 lbs now. But still yeah crazy footwork!

  • Aric Brown

    Ziggy did fine in Pittsburgh… He just wasn’t Aaron Smith and many people never gave him a fair shot because of that

  • Virdin Barzey

    I’ll take these videos any day over that other guy taking ballet classes to get better. LOL.

    What I see in these vids is a hungry player wanting to be great.

  • colingrant

    Regardless of results or profession, any individual that puts forth maximum effort to achieve maximum results, are to be commended first and foremost. It is not meaningless by any stretch. In fact, one could say that they are special regardless if the desired result ever comes to fruition, given the fact that many do not have the discipline or will to even try. Maximum effort enables the below average to become average, the average to become above average/good, the good to become very good/great and the great to become extraordinarily great and perhaps legendary.To suggests activities representing total commitment is meaningless, is absurdity in its truest form.

  • Asmitty56

    The difference is Hood didn’t play with great technique so that strength wasn’t functional. But Bell looked just fine last season, the hard work and dedication only makes him better.
