Buzz at the NFL Combine suggest Baltimore is a favorite to sign Bell.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are poised to lose two All-Pro offensive weapons this off-season in Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown.
The Steelers are looking to trade Brown outside of the AFC North and, ideally, out of the AFC altogether. Pittsburgh doesn't have the same luxury of dictating where Bell ends up now that he's a free agent, and they could be seeing him twice next season.

According to a report by The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec, the division rival Baltimore Ravens have emerged as "one of the favorites" to sign Bell.
Zrebiec writes, "If you believe some of the buzz around Indianapolis this week during the NFL scouting combine, the Ravens have become one of the favorites to sign Bell."
Bell, 27, sat out all of last season and a recent report suggested he put on 35 pounds, weighing as much as 260 lbs, at one point during his time off. That said, Bell has rushed for over 1,200 yards in three of his last four NFL seasons, and he racked up more than 1,800 yards from scrimmage in each of those three Pro Bowl campaigns.
The Ravens current depth chart lists Gus Edwards as their starter, with Buck Allen as the backup.
