But Bell’s rushing style can be difficult to figure Vaughn Martin Authentic Womens Jersey out. Even the men blocking for him find it a unique experience. Bell waits, and waits, and waits some more, slow-cooking his runs until his rushing lanes have the right seasoning.
It’s hard to complain about the results after Bell recently became the fastest player in NFL history to reach 3,000 rushing yards and 1,500 receiving yards.
