Free agent S Yeremiah Bell has retired from the NFL.
Bell, 36, lasted 11 seasons after being a sixth-round pick out of Eastern Kentucky by the Dolphins in 2003. He appeared in 142 career games, making 107 starts, and made one Pro Bowl in 2009 as a member of the Dolphins. Bell spent nine years in Miami before playing for the Jets and Cardinals in 2012 and 2013, respectively. He made 566 career tackles and picked off eight passes. Sun, Aug 10, 2014 02:00:00 PM

Free agent S Yeremiah Bell is reportedly likely to retire.

Bell started all 16 games for the Cardinals last season, playing just about every snap and handling himself reasonably well as part of the league's No. 6 defense. But at age 36, it sounds like he wants to go out on a high note. The Cards need depth at the safety spot with Tyrann Mathieu coming off a torn ACL.

The Arizona Republic projects Yeremiah Bell and Rashad Johnson as the Cardinals' starters at safety.

Bell will presumably play free safety with Johnson at strong. Despite the fact that Arizona drafted Tyrann Mathieu early in the third round, they'll ease him in on special teams and as a potential slot cornerback in nickel packages. If Johnson keeps the strong safety job, he'll be the IDP to target in the group.

Cardinals agreed to terms with S Yeremiah Bell, formerly of the Jets, on a one-year, $905,000 contract.

Bell, 35, replaces recently released Kerry Rhodes. Bell registered 89 tackles and two pass breakups with New York last season. Cardinals DC Todd Bowles was Bell's position coach in Miami from 2008-11. We suspect Bell will be Arizona's free safety with Rashad Johnson manning the strong side.

Jets secondary coach Dennis Thurman expects an athletic three-man platoon at safety with Yeremiah Bell, LaRon Landry, and Eric Smith.

Bell and Landry are expected to play strong- and free-hybrids since the Jets defense has no difference between the two positions. The rotation could end up working, as Landry (Achilles) is a major injury risk while Bell and Smith are stretched as full-time starters.

ESPN New York reports the Jets signed S Yeremiah Bell to start.

Beat writer Rich Cimini expects the Jets to enter Week 1 with a starting safety tandem of Bell and LaRon Landry. We expect Landry to man free safety with Bell slotting in at strong. That presumes Landry (Achilles) will make it onto the field, of course. Eric Smith will be first in line if/when Bell or Landry falter.

Jets signed free agent S Yeremiah Bell to a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

It's a mild upset after Bell's agent spent the day with the Eagles on Thursday. Now 34 years old with coverage skills that slipped significantly of late, Bell will have to compete for a starting job. Free safety Eric Smith was a fan and media whipping boy last season, though, so Bell's chances are better than they would be with another team.

Free agent S Yeremiah Bell is expected to sign with the Eagles or Jets by the end of the day Friday.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus, who said he was on his way to visit a "mystery team," spent Thursday in Philadelphia finalizing LeSean McCoy's contract. That would seem to put the Eagles in the driver's seat for Bell's services. The two teams have reportedly made the same offer.

The player rep for free agent S Yeremiah Bell says his client will sign with a team within 24 hours.

Bell has flirted with the Eagles, Chiefs, Titans, and Jets. The 34-year-old's likeliest landing spots at this point appear to be Kansas City and Tennessee.
Thu, May 17, 2012 11:39:00 AM

Free agent S Yeremiah Bell will visit the Chiefs Wednesday.

Bell is visiting the Titans on Tuesday, so it's possible he'll never make it to Kansas City. Two months removed from his 34th birthday and coming off his worst season, Bell will be a depth signing wherever he ends up.
Tue, May 15, 2012 12:16:00 PM

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles didn't sign free agent S Yeremiah Bell because they "think he's done."

The Eagles were one of the teams to kick the tires on Bell following his release from the Dolphins. Bell isn't known to have visited Philly, but visited the Jets in April and the Titans on Tuesday. Wherever he ends up, it sounds like he'll have a tough time locking down a roster spot.
Tue, May 15, 2012 11:10:00 AM

Free agent safeties Yeremiah Bell and Chris Crocker are scheduled to visit the Titans on Tuesday.

Bell has already been connected to several teams, including the Jets, Eagles and Patriots, but has yet to latch on. The 32-year-old Crocker has visited the Lions and Cardinals since being cut by the Bengals in early April. The Titans are looking for depth behind starters Jordan Babineaux and Michael Griffin.
Mon, May 14, 2012 07:13:00 PM

Free agent SS Yeremiah Bell will visit the Jets on Monday.

It's Bell's first known visit since he was released by the Dolphins on March 19. He's also reportedly drawn interest from the Patriots and Eagles. Bell could push Eric Smith for playing time in New York. Smith struggled in 2011.

Free agent SS Yeremiah Bell is drawing interest from the Jets in addition to the Eagles and Patriots.

According to agent Drew Rosenhaus, Bell will not be re-signing with the Dolphins. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported four days ago Miami hadn't ruled out bringing him back. One month removed from his 34th birthday and a liability in coverage, Bell will be hard pressed to land a starting job.

In addition to the Eagles, free agent SS Yeremiah Bell is reportedly drawing interest from the Patriots.

The Dolphins haven't ruled out bringing back Bell, though that's less likely after Thursday's Tyrell Johnson signing. At 34, Bell's coverage skills have slipped to the point that he's going to have to compete for a job no matter where he lands.
