Wilson Bell played this past year with the Baltimore Brigade of the Arena Football League. A former NCAA National Champion, Bell played in both the ACC and SEC and signed a contract as an undrafted free agent with the Buffalo Bills in 2018.
Bell arrived at Florida State in 2013 and played in two games before suffering a knee injury. He took the season as a redshirt year as the Seminoles went on to claim the Atlantic Coast Conference title and the BCS National Championship with a 34-31 win over Auburn.
After seeing action in two games in 2014, Bell started every game on the offensive line for the Seminoles in 2015. He helped pave the way for running back Dalvin Cook, who rushed for single season records of 1,691 rushing yards and 1,935 all-purpose yards. He also blocked for Cook’s record setting day as he gained 266 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-14 win over the University of South Florida.
In 2016 he started just five games and the following season enrolled at Auburn as a graduate transfer where he was a part of the rotation at offensive line for the Tigers. Still the Eight Mile, AL native did draw attention as he was named to play in both the SPIRAL Tropical Bowl and the College Gridiron Showcase following his senior season in 2017.
Bell opened enough eyes to ultimately sign as an undrafted free agent following the 2018 NFL Draft with the Buffalo Bills attending mini-camp with the AFC East ball club.
After his stint in Buffalo, Wilson signed with the Jacksonville Sharks of the NAL in 2018 starting the last 4 games of the season. In 2019 he signed with Baltimore of the AFL and started 15 games for the Brigade where he garnered the team offensive lineman of the year honors following the season.
