Former Bears and Jets RB Kahlil Bell announced via his Twitter account on Monday that he has signed with the Green Bay Packers.
So greatful for this opportunity to be apart of the Green Bay Packers Its been a long year but kept the faith n kept fighting! Im a Packer!!
- Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com has confirmed the move.
Bell, 26, worked out for Green Bay last season and again on Monday. He hasn’t played at all this season since he was cut loose by the Jets.
This comes close to a week after the team placed fourth-round pick RB Jonathan Franklin on season-ending injured reserve, so they could clearly use some extra depth at the position. As of now, we do not know the corresponding roster move.
