Bills sign free agent linebacker Mike Bell


After not selecting a linebacker with any of their seven selections in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills added one as a free agent on Monday.

The team announced it has signed linebacker Mike Bell, who was with the team during rookie minicamp last year on a tryout basis.

At the time, Bell was listed on the rookie minicamp roster as a 210-pound safety. However, according to the team's official website, Bell is now 220 pounds and will be converted to linebacker.

Signed: LB Mike Bell (Fresno State)
