Kahlil Bell came into the NFL in 2009 as an undrafted free agent out of UCLA. Kahlil was signed by the Vikings after that draft, but was released in mid August. The Bears saw something in Bell and decided to sign him about a month later. Bell was on the practice squad for the beginning of the season, but after RB Garrett Wolfe got injured, Bell was promoted to the active roster.
Bell made the most of his opportunity, running for 72 yards on his first NFL carry against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football. In two seasons with the Bears, Bell has rushed for 220 yards on 40 carries. Bell, 24, will compete for the backup job with veteran Chester Taylor and young Harvey Unga next season.
Bell talked about his off-season, the NFL lockout, the game of football and much more.
