The Bears drafted Bell in the seventh round this year. General manager Ryan Poles called Bell one of his “favorite humans” this spring, but he didn’t make the 53-man roster after training camp.
The Bears signed Bell to the practice squad following training camp. Bell has not played in any snaps for the Bears this season.
Bell will join a Falcons team that has added a lot of former Bears to their roster, including defensive lineman Eddie Goldman last season, as they have former Chicago general manager Ryan Pace on their front office staff.
The Falcons needed to add depth to their defensive line after losing Grady Jarrett for the rest of the season due to a torn ACL.
