Tatum Bell can stop pestering the Four Seasons Hotel for a front desk job, as the out-of-work NFL RB and baggage mishandler has been brought back to the Broncos.

The ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS reports that Denver re-signed their one-time rusher on Tuesday, in an effort to bring a little stability to a Broncos backfield bothered by injuries. Tatum returns to the Mile High City once again over a year after he was traded to Detroit.
But if the Broncos give Bell the boot once again, Mike Shanahan better make sure his Samsomites are safe.
Let no one say that Roy Williams doesn’t have a sense of humor, and is likely a lot funnier than you. The Cowboys WR showed up in Detroit at a Halloween party wearing a costume that has the internet rolling on the floor with laughter, and one free agent running back likely fuming (while not looking for a job.)
Williams attended old teammate Mike Furrey’s charity Halloween event wearing a bellhop’s uniform with a nametag reading T. Bell. You’ll recall Tatum Bell, after being replaced on the Lions roster by Rudi Johnson, decided to help himself to parting gift - a lovely set of luggage. Unfortunately the luggage was Johnson’s, complete with all his stuff inside. (More pictures, and video, after the jump.)
ROFLZberger: The Steelers led the Giants for most of the way this evening, but when the fourth quarter came around, the Giants came alive and the Steelers came undone. New York took advantage of a bad snap on a punt for a game-tying safety, then marched decisively down the field for their first touchdown of the game to make it 21-14. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh’s offensive line imploded, and Ben Roethlisberger was utterly unable to get anything started for the home team. Cheers to the Giants, who (sorry, Tennessee) can reliably lay claim to being the best team in the NFL right now.

When Tatum Bell was released by the Lions on Monday, he grabbed some luggage on his way out. The only problem - the bags Tatum took belonged to Bell’s incoming RB replacement, Rudi Johnson.
And when Rudi’s bags were finally recovered on Tuesday, Johnson claims that he’d been cleaned out - he was missing “his identification, credit cards, about $200 in cash and some undergarments.”
However, Bell says Rudi’s ranting is wrong. It’s all just an honest mistake by an outgoing player trying to do a favor for a friend.
Assuming Tatum Bell pays his taxes, he no doubt lists his occupation as “professional football player,” although there are plenty of people in Denver and Detroit who would take issue with that characterization.
Perhaps “porter” would be a better job description based on reports from PRO FOOTBALL TALK that the newly released Lions running back walked off with Rudi Johnson’s bags. Johnson, by the way, replaced Bell on the roster earlier this week.
