CB Bell Not Sure Why He’s Not Getting a Super Bowl Ring

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the agent for Packers cornerback Josh Bell said his client has not been invited to the team’s Super Bowl ring ceremony Thursday in Green Bay and doesn’t know why.

Bell injured his foot in the team’s intrasquad scrimmage Aug. 7 and was placed on injured reserve three days later. He chose to rehabilitate his injury with the team rather than accept an injury settlement and be released immediately.

The Packers aren’t expected to bring Bell back once the NFL lockout is over.

“His time there, as part of the organization, he enjoyed it,” said Bell’s agent, Frederick Lyles. “This is kind of a surprise. It’s unfortunate. I don’t know if it’s an oversight, considering the attention being paid to the lockout. We just haven’t been able to reach them and find out.”

The Packers signed Bell to a two-year deal on Nov. 24, 2009 after they lost cornerback Al Harris to a season-ending injury. Bell played in four games for the Packers and played solidly at times, but was best remembered for allowing a last-second touchdown to receiver Mike Wallace in a 37-36 loss to Pittsburgh.

The Packers felt Bell was worth keeping around and brought him back for training camp last summer, hoping he would compete for a nickel or dime position.

The Packers wouldn’t comment specifically on Bell not receiving a ring.

    …well, let’s see…he didn’t make the team, as he was injured in preseason…he played very briefly last year and was burned repeatedly.
    He never would have made the team…Sam Shields turned into a stud hoss and Pat Lee and Brandon Underwood were each given another year to develop…With our 4th round pick, a DB, Devon House…likely one or both of them will be gone…via cut…
