Bears add RB Bell to practice squad

| 5 Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears finally added fourth running back after losing veteran Kevin Jones to a season-ending ankle injury at the end of the preseason.

They have signed running back Kahlil Bell to the practice squad, trimming Johan Asiata to make room for him.

Bell joined the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent from UCLA, where he rushed for 1,741 yards in a four-year career.

Often times, general manager Jerry Angelo will rotate the practice squad so he can shuffle in players every few weeks and get a look at far more than the eight that are allowed at one time.

Well y'all know I try to look on the bright side and the Queens are deep at running back but.....

This guy couldn't break 4.7 at either the combine or his pro day. His other measurables are kind of ordinary too. I guess that makes him a between the tackles runner, but he is not really that big. Oh, and he has been very prone to injury.

Other than that he could be a real find.

Oh, Brad, you wordsmith. I love it when you use "trim" as a verb.

Anyone else see something wrong with "trimming" "vb" Asiata, a guard, when Omiyale, a guard, was hurt last Sunday? They add an RB when they don't use "OUR" AP during the game. He only had the best yardage of the RB's in the preseason. Anyone else see why the Bears smell slightly?

This is the JA Corp. doing what they do. Their motto, "If there is a way to do it wrong...that us!!!!!"... Matters little.. they have doomed themselves. This is the last year we will have to deal with those idiots..

He should have picked up Gartrell Johnson off of waivers, he is going to be a BEAST for the Giants if he sees the field.
