Packers sign former Bears RB Kahlil Bell

According to ESPN.com, the Packers signed former Bears RB Kahlil Bell yesterday. Bell played for the Bears from 2009-2012, and has rushed for a total of 663 yards in his 4-year NFL career. 

On Christmas Day 2011, Bell had by far the best game of his career at Lambeau Field, rushing for 121 yards in a Packers victory. So, since he's capable of doing that, let's hope he starts playing well again. The Pack could definitely use a better running game right now, especially if Rodgers ends up not playing this Sunday. Now I think he ultimately will, but you know, just in case he doesn't.

It's always surprising to see TT sign any experienced veteran. Obviously he's just here for depth to finish out the season now that Franklin's season is over. It was interesting that he possibly beat out former Packer Brandon Jackson for the spot. Neither is very good, both had negative rankings during their last significant playing time, but Bell will only play on special teams.
