Kahlil Bell RB GB 10 Months
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.

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.

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.

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 Sprano'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.

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 has been active for just two of Chicago's first six games. With so many teams in need of running backs, it's possible he won't slip through waivers unclaimed.
