The Green Bay Packers Wednesday re-signed tackle/guard Brad Bedell. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, made the announcement.
Bedell, a 6-foot-4, 306-pound offensive lineman from Colorado, served as the primary backup to Chad Clifton at left tackle throughout the 2004 season. Acquired Sept. 5 from Miami for a conditional 2006 draft choice, Bedell ("buh-DELL") saw action in four games, dressed but did not play in two contests, and was inactive for the other 10. He made his Packers debut Dec. 12 vs. Detroit, replacing Kevin Barry (quadriceps) as an extra tackle/tight end in the team's 'U-71' package.
Originally selected by Cleveland in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft, Bedell has played in 31 games with four starts. An All-American at Colorado in 1999, he started 22 games in two years after transferring from Mt. San Antonio Junior College.
