- Getlin previously reports that the Bears were bringing in Bell in for a workout.
This comes after the news that Jeremy Langford has a high-ankle sprain and could miss 4-6 weeks.
Bell previously visited with the Bills and Lions since becoming available.
Bell, 29, was in the final year of his three-year, $9.3 million contract that included $4.3 million guaranteed when he was released in a move that freed up $2.5 million in available cap space for the Lions.
In 2015, Bell appeared in 13 games for the Lions and ran for 311 yards on 90 carries (3.5 YPC) to go along with 22 receptions for 286 yards receiving and four total touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 27 running back out of 68 qualifying players.
