Packers signed RB Kahlil Bell.
The Pack were short a back after sending Johnathan Franklin (concussion) to injured reserve. Bell has 148 career carries for 633 yards (4.3 YPC), but would need injuries in front of him to get the ball in Green Bay. Mon, Dec 2, 2013 05:09:00 PM

Date:

Jets released RB Kahlil Bell and LB Danny Lansanah.

They'll move forward with Alex Green and Bilal Powell behind Chris Ivory at tailback. Lansanah was only a special teams player.
Sun, Sep 1, 2013 05:15:00 PM

Jets signed RB Kahlil Bell.

26-year-old Bell will be a camp body in Jets training camp. In corresponding moves, the Jets released RB/FB John Griffin with an injury settlement and signed UDFA wide receiver Rahsaan Vaughn.
Sun, Aug 11, 2013 04:17:00 PM

Free agent RB Kahlil Bell will work out for the Jaguars on Wednesday.

On the street for a majority of 2012, Bell rushed 29 times for 76 yards in four games for the Bears, flopping as a short-yardage back. He'd be a depth signing for a Jaguars team that's already four deep at running back.
Tue, May 21, 2013 05:29:00 PM

Kahlil Bell rushed four times for 12 yards in Chicago's Week 17 win over the Lions.

The recently-signed back executed on only 1-of-2 3rd-and-short carries, however. Bell will operate as Matt Forte's back-up if Chicago sneaks into the playoffs, but will be back on the street come the offseason.
Sun, Dec 30, 2012 05:57:00 PM

Bears RB Kahlil Bell rushed 13 times for 32 yards off the bench in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Bell was the lead back ahead of Armando Allen (5-24, 1-1) after Matt Forte's third-quarter ankle reaggravation. Depending on Forte's recovery speed, Bell could get another extended look in Week 17 against the Lions. Bell is a pedestrian back with 4.7 speed but some versatility. He had a couple of big box-score games when Forte was injured down the stretch last season.
Sun, Dec 23, 2012 08:08:00 PM

Bears OC Mike Tice says newly re-signed RB Kahlil Bell could operate as Chicago's short-yardage and goal-line back in Week 16.

Michael Bush (ribs) is out for the season, while Matt Forte has struggled near the goal-line, so it's not as surprising of a revelation as it might seem. However, Bell will still likely be in line for no more than 5-6 touches, and isn't a recommended flex option in even exceptionally-deep leagues for the fantasy finals.
Wed, Dec 19, 2012 04:13:00 PM

Bears will re-sign RB Kahlil Bell.

Michael Bush has been active despite sore ribs in each of the last two games, but has only touched the ball once. Look for Bush to rest in Week 16, leaving Bell and Armando Allen to back up Matt Forte.
Tue, Dec 18, 2012 09:33:00 AM

Jets waived RB Kahlil Bell.

With Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell dominating backfield reps, Bell isn't needed. His roster spot is expected to be used so the Jets can acquire wideout depth -- possibly in the form of Braylon Edwards.
Tue, Dec 11, 2012 11:26:00 AM

Jets signed RB Kahlil Bell, formerly of the Bears.

The Bell signing doesn't say much for Steve Slaton, who was passed over in Tuesday's workout. Unlike Bell, Slaton has experience in Tony Sparano's offense. With Bilal Powell nursing a concussion and Joe McKnight battling a high-ankle sprain, Bell could back up Shonn Greene in Week 11.
Tue, Nov 13, 2012 04:16:00 PM

Bears waived RB Kahlil Bell.

According to the Chicago Tribune's Vaughn McClure, the Bears want a receiver to take Bell's roster spot. Bell played well down the stretch last season, but was active for just two of Chicago's first five games. With so many teams in need of running backs, it's possible he won't slip through waivers unclaimed.
Mon, Oct 15, 2012 10:39:00 AM

Kahlil Bell rushed 10 times for 20 yards in Chicago's Week 3 win over the Rams, adding one catch for 11 yards.

With Michael Bush struggling to find running lanes behind the Bears' porous offensive line, Bell was given a chance to make an imprint, but instead fared even worse than his backfield mate. With Matt Forte appearing shaky for Week 4, Bell should get another shot at a change-of-pace role behind Bush in Dallas, but won't be worth flex consideration in deeper fantasy leagues.
Sun, Sep 23, 2012 04:36:00 PM

Bears signed RB Kahlil Bell.

Matt Forte was injured in Week 2 and will likely miss a month or more with a high ankle sprain, so Chicago was on the lookout for some depth behind Michael Bush. Bell was cut by the Bears at the end of August after, reportedly, refusing to take a pay cut. The Bears also had free agent Steve Slaton in for a workout on Saturday.
Sat, Sep 15, 2012 02:01:00 PM

Free agent RB Kahlil Bell worked out for the Patriots on Saturday.

The Pats are likely just doing their due diligence, though Bell would be an upgrade on undrafted rookie Brandon Bolden. Bolden made the Pats' initial 53-man roster despite averaging just 3.6 yards on his 36 preseason carries while fumbling twice.
Sat, Sep 1, 2012 02:39:00 PM

Bears waived RB Kahlil Bell.

The move was reportedly precipitated by Bell's refusal to accept a pay cut from $1.26 million to $700,000 as the third-string tailback. Bell played an important fantasy role down the stretch last season with 116.3 scrimmage yards per in the final three games of the season. Although Bell is well worth a flier for team with a zone-blocking scheme, he lacks explosiveness, has had ball security issues and was described by Football Outsiders' Ben Muth as the "worst chip-blocker I've seen on film."
