This is a little surprising, considering that the Lions know Bell very well. However, it could be just a check up to see how he looks in case they want to add another running back to their roster.
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.
Bell previously visited with the Bills since becoming available, but there hasn’t been any reported interest since then.
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.
