Jaguars to host RB Kahlil Bell for workout, according to report

Justin K. Aller

Bell would join a crowded group at running back if signed by the Jaguars.

The Jaguars have to feel somewhat comfortable about the running back position with Maurice Jones-Drew, Justin Forsett and Denard Robinson all on roster, but that doesn't mean they'll continue to look for increased competition, as Adam Caplan of Sirius XM NFL Radio reports that former Jets and Bears running back Kahlil Bell is scheduled to workout for the team on Wednesday.

Bell, 26, was an undrafted free agent following the 2009 NFL Draft and signed with the Minnesota Vikings, but was waived during the preseason of his rookie year. He earned a spot on the Chicago Bears practice squad and eventually earned his way to the active roster, playing in 24 games for the team and starting three. He was waived by the Bears twice in 2012 and once by the New York Jets before finishing the season with the Bears.

In 24 career games, Bell has accumulated 633 yards rushing on 148 carries (4.3 yards per carry) and has yet to record a rushing touchdown. Along with Jones-Drew, Forsett and Robinson, the Jaguars also have De'Leon Eskridge, Jonathan Grimes and Jordan Todman on roster.
