Report: Team Interested In Yeremiah Bell

Could another Bell formerly of an AFC East team be added to the roster in the near future?

This past week, the Eagles inked former Buffalo offensive tackle Demetress Bell to a five-year deal. Apparently, the Eagles have shown interest in former Dolphins strong safety Yeremiah Bell, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus who told WSVN-TV in Miami per Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post. The Patriots and the Jets have also reportedly shown interest in the 34-year-old Bell, who was released by the Dolphins on March 19.

The 6-0, 205-pound Bell was cut by the Dolphins for salary cap reasons. The eight-year NFL veteran was a team captain for the Dolphins and was the team's longest-tenured player - a sixth-round pick in 2003. Bell led the Dolphins with 107 tackles from the strong safety position in 2011.

The obvious connection to Bell is new Eagles secondary coach Todd Bowles, who was Miami's secondary coach and interim head coach in 2011. Bowles coached Bell for four seasons.
