Sources close to the team have revealed that the Bengals are finalizing a one-year contract with Bell, who was recently released by the Carolina Panthers.

Vonn Bell’s anticipated return to the Bengals is a homecoming of sorts, as he previously spent three seasons with the team from 2020 to 2022. During his initial stint, Bell was instrumental in Cincinnati’s back-to-back AFC Championship Games appearances and their journey to Super Bowl LVI.

While the Bengals’ secondary had some promising moments in 2023, the team decided to go elsewhere for depth and leadership at safety due to injuries and inconsistent play. Bell provides a track record of success within the Bengals organization along with knowledge of the defensive scheme.

The Bengals seem cautious, based on the one-year contract. Even though Vonn Bell offers leadership and experience, the team’s long-term goal may be to develop younger prospects at safety.
