"I think I'll be fine. We'll see how it is in the preseason," said Bell, who did not play on the Steelers' dime defense in 2001. "If I feel comfortable enough, I'll tell the coaches that I feel comfortable with it and I'll be out there."

The biggest transition Bell expects is adjusting to lining up over the offensive tackle. He got most of his sacks in 2001 on delayed blitzes, waiting for a second before finding a seam in the line.

"It's going to change a lot for me. I never really came off the end and was one-on-one with a guy who's already anticipating my rush up the field," Bell said. "I have to learn a lot more as far as beating those guys. I'm not feeling any pressure. I expect that (people will want more). As long as I continue to play like I have, there's no pressure."
