New Bucs WR Kenny Bell.

Kenny Bell is a damned good college receiver. Nebraska is not known for throwing the ball but in the Bo Pelini era, he opened up the offense more than previous administrations.

The beneficiary was Bell, who left Nebraska with an armful of receiving records including career catches (181) and receiving yards (2,689). He led Nebraska in receiving all four years.

But it isn’t just receiving that Bell thrived in. He also was a warrior on special teams. In 2013, Bell led the Big Ten in kick return average with 26.5 yards.

“I led my team in tackles as a gunner on the punt team,” Bell said. “I love to play special teams. I love the opportunity to just play football.”

Bell has the genes to play football. His father, Ken Bell, played for the Denver Broncos from 1986 to 1989, and had over 2,000 yards in kickoff returns.

    … And no helmet needed. He’s got all the protection built in. On a serious note, he looks like a great special teamer out of the box.
