The Green Bay Packers signed QB Dalton Bell and G Cameron Stephenson to the practice squad and released TE Clark Harris and QB Paul Thompson from the practice squad. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, made the announcement Tuesday.
Bell, a four-year letterwinner from West Texas A&M, finished his collegiate career with 7,779 passing yards and 62 touchdowns. He guided the team to back-to-back Lone Star Conference Championships the past two seasons and compiled a 20-4 record as a starter. He signed as a non-drafted free agent with the Carolina Panthers in May and was released in the team's final roster reduction.
Stephenson was a fifth-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2007 NFL Draft. A two-year letterwinner at Rutgers, Stephenson played on the defensive line as a 2005 junior before switching to offensive line as a senior. He started all 12 games at right guard in 2006 and earned second-team All-Big East accolades.
