Rotowire: Mar 27 / 9:54a ET
News: Ball signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Friday, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports.
Impact: The 29-year-old Ball has played in 93 NFL games, getting the start in 44 of those contests. He largely struggled in Jacksonville the past two seasons, and he'll now join a team that has Tim Jennings and Kyle Fuller on the roster. Ball could compete with incumbent Demontre Hurst for the nickelback role.
Rotowire: Mar 22 / 12:08p ET
News: Ball has yet to finalize a deal with the Panthers, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Previous reports suggested that Ball had agreed to a one-year deal with Carolina, but such a deal hasn't been closed, with the report suggesting that at least one other team could be interested in pursuing the cornerback, who recorded 22 tackles and a pick in seven starts for the Jaguars in 2014.
Rotowire: Mar 19 / 10:03a ET
News: The Panthers have signed Ball to a one-year deal, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Ball, who recorded 22 tackles and a pick in seven starts for the Jaguars in 2014 prior to landing on IR with a biceps injury, is thus a candidate to start at cornerback for the Panthers this coming season opposite Josh Norman.
