Vonn Bell has played critical roles on each of the teams he’s played for in his seven-season career. Now, it looks like he’ll be an integral force on Frank Reich’s Carolina Panthers.
As was first reported by Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, and later confirmed by the team, Bell is set to sign with the Panthers.

Panthers.com writer Darin Gantt detailed the team needing to bolster its safety depth, which it surely accomplished with the proposed Bell signing.
“He’s a proven starter in the secondary (where they have another solid veteran in Xavier Woods), and he gives them some flexibility with Jeremy Chinn,” Gantt wrote.
“Chinn could play a hybrid role in the new defense, and he’s made more plays when he was closer to the line of scrimmage.”
2022 was a standout campaign for Bell, whose four interceptions were a career-high. What’s more, the former Bengals captain Bell promises to be a clubhouse leader for a franchise in transition.
The NFL’s Next Gen Stats Twitter account put Bell’s defensive contributions into perspective.
“Vonn Bell has recorded 19 hustle stops over the last two seasons, tied for 4th-most among defensive backs. The safety has also shown his range as a blitzer, recording 13 pressures since 2021 (tied for 5th among DB).”
