Former Nebraska Star WR Kenny Bell Waived By Baltimore Ravens

Kenny Bell, a former star wide receiver for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, has been waived by the Baltimore Ravens.

Bell signed with the Ravens practice squad last October, and signed a reserve/future contract with the club in January.

He had originally been drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, but was on injured reserve for his rookie year, and was released as part of the Bucs' final roster cuts ahead of the 2016 season.

The Ravens announced the move this afternoon.

In an interesting twist, Bell and Jeremy Zuttah, a former Rutgers offensive lineman, have had strangely intertwined careers. Zuttah was traded by the Buccaneers to the Ravens in return for the fifth round pick that was used to pick Bell. Now, Bell has been waived by the Ravens, so that the team, which had subsequently dealt Zuttah to the San Francisco 49ers earlier this year, could reacquire him.
