Coach Adam Shackleford is excited to have a proven winner back on his team to join an already stacked secondary. "Dustin Bell was a key player for us in 2011. He has been in the AFL the last 2 years and has had a terrific career there." Shack continued on how he sees Bell helping the Fever now that he has returned, "He is a dominant cover corner that will help our talented secondary. He also thrives on special teams, which is extremely important."

Over the past two seasons Bell has been in the Arena League playing for the Cleveland Gladiators in 2012 and for the New Orleans Voodoo this past season.
