The last of the 2004 Draft selections is finally in camp as Tatum Bell, a 5-11, 213-pound running back out of Oklahoma agreed to terms late Friday night, ending three-day holdout.
"We're glad to have this deal done," General Manager Ted Sundquist said. "We're excited to see what he'll do on the field for us this year, and look forward to having him on the practice field among our running backs."
Bell, the first of Denver's two second round picks, was the 41st. overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State. In 41 career games (29 starts) with the Cowboys, the three-year starter carried 634 times for 3,409 yards (5.4) and 34 touchdowns while adding 36 receptions for 258 yards (7.2) and two touchdowns. He was considered one of Texas' fastest high school football players at DeSoto High School in DeSoto, Texas, and several national publications tabbed him as a Top-100 player in the state.
