The Buffalo Bills announced the addition of linebacker Mike Bell to their roster on Monday. Bell was a 2019 draft eligible player from Fresno State who had a tryout with the Bills following the 2019 NFL Draft.
Bell, 6-3 and now 220 pounds, primarily played in the secondary at Fresno State, earning second-team All-Mountain West honors in 2018 at free safety with 86 tackles, three interceptions and eight pass breakups.
During his collegiate career Bell totaled 199 tackles, nine for loss, four interceptions, 12 passes defensed and one forced fumble.
He will convert to linebacker for Buffalo.
The Bills did not draft a linebacker this weekend although they continued to add strength to their defense with players like edge rusher A.J. Epenesa and cornerback Dane Jackson.
Bell joins two other new additions to the linebacker room, A.J. Klein and Tyler Matakevich, who joined the team during free agency.
