Alabama WR Bell leaving team

The SportsXchange

Alabama senior wide receiver Kenny Bell announced Tuesday on Twitter that he will no longer play for the Crimson Tide.

"I've made so many memories here @ Alabama but some things you gotta let go," he tweeted. " ... it's been a nice run but I'm hanging up my cleats."

According to, Bell practiced with the team on Monday. A school spokesman early Tuesday afternoon would not confirm Bell's departure.

Bell did not catch a pass in Alabama's season-opening 35-10 win over Virginia Tech on Saturday. At the end of last season, he sustained a broken leg in the game against Auburn and missed the SEC and national championship games.

"Salute to my team y'all keep grinding and win that championship," he tweeted. " ... time too focus on my responsibilities MY kiDS."

Bell caught 17 passes for 431 yards and three touchdowns last year.

" ... I know I'm going to lose so many friends and followers and get more negative talk from people but truth is I Dnt care," he also tweeted.

Bell earned his undergraduate degree last December.
