Bears cut RB Bell loose

Only four months after signing his one- year tender offer, the Chicago Bears on Thursday waived running back Kahlil Bell.

The UCLA product, drafted by Chicago in 2009, totaled 557 yards on 119 rushing attempts and caught 20 balls for 137 yards and one touchdown in 20 games for the Bears.
