Iowa Barnstormers Sign OL with NFL Experience

DES MOINES - Iowa Barnstormers Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today the signing of offensive lineman Mitchell Bell, previously with the Oakland Raiders, to the 2017 roster.

Bell (6-4, 330, Louisiana Tech) joins the Iowa Barnstormers for his first season in the Indoor Football League (IFL). In 2015, Bell was signed to the NFL as an undrafted free agent by the Oakland Raiders. Bell was waived by the Raiders in the final cut down, but earned a spot on the practice squad where he ultimately finished out the season. Collegiately, Bell began his career at Navarro Junior College before transferring to Louisiana Tech where he played for two years. In 2013, Bell appeared in 11 of 12 games as a Bulldog, earning the start in eight. Bell was named 2013 Honorable Mention All-Conference USA.

"In recruiting players, we are going after guys that want to be in the NFL," said Coach Wooten. "We want scouts to know we have guys that have just left NFL teams and they will be ready to go back."

Coach Wooten is excited to add a player with that NFL experience to the 2017 Barnstormers roster.

"To have a great offense, it starts up front, so signing Mitchell Bell is huge," said Coach Wooten. "He has a year of NFL experience and he is hungry to get back. I'm excited to have Mitchell with the Barnstormers and we will see him back in the NFL again."

Season Tickets are on sale for the Iowa Barnstormers 2017 season starting as low as $80 per seat. Don't miss a minute of the action! For more information, call the Barnstormers at (515) 633-2255 or log on to www.theiowabarnstormers.com.
