Byron Bell took first-team reps at left tackle during the Cowboys' practice on Wednesday.
Tyron Smith (groin) was out again on Wednesday after missing Sunday's game against the Falcons. Chaz Green was demolished in that game, so the Cowboys will certainly look for a different option if Smith is forced to sit again. It looks like Bell is their guy. Bell started 17 games including the playoffs at left tackle for the Panthers in 2014. Thu, Nov 16, 2017 10:56:00 AM

Cowboys signed G/T Byron Bell, formerly of the Titans.

The Cowboys needed some help up front after losing Doug Free (retired) and Ronald Leary (signed with Denver). Bell also visited the 49ers and Packers before choosing Dallas. Bell could be an option to replace Free at right tackle. He spent all of last season on injured reserve after disclosing his left ankle at OTAs.

The Packers visited with free agent OL Byron Bell.

Bell missed all of 2016 with an ankle injury. He was a starter the first five years of his career and could be a candidate to replace T.J. Lang. The 49ers have also been linked to Bell.

Free agent G/T Byron Bell visited the 49ers over the weekend.

A starter from 2011-15 with the Panthers and Titans, Bell missed all of 2016 with an ankle injury. Bell provides versatility, but belongs on the bench, not in the starting 11.

Titans placed G/T Byron Bell (ankle) on injured reserve.

Bell dislocated his left ankle in OTAs and will now miss the entire 2016 season. He started all 16 games for Tennessee last season but was headed for a reserve role this year. The 27-year-old will hit free agency after this season.

Titans G/T Byron Bell suffered a "significant left ankle" injury in Tuesday's OTAs session, and is likely out for the season.

Bell was diagnosed with a dislocated ankle after being carted off the field. Bell was a 16-game starter between guard and tackle last year, but was heading into 2016 as a reserve. He signed a one-year, $2.25 million deal in March. He turns 28 in January.

Titans re-signed G/T Byron Bell to a one-year contract.

The ex-Panther saw heavy snaps at both guard and tackle last season, but struggled mightily. Bell has never been an effective tackle. It might be time for him to make the move full time to guard. That's especially true since the Titans could be drafting Ole Miss' Laremy Tunsil to bookend Taylor Lewan.

Byron Bell will get another start at left guard in the Titans' third preseason game.

Bell got the nod at left guard over Andy Levitre in Sunday night's preseason game against the Rams and impressed coach Ken Whisenhunt enough to leave him there for Tennessee's regular-season dress rehearsal. That leaves the rest of the Titans' line looking like: LT Taylor Lewan, C Brian Schwenke, RG Chance Warmack, and rookie RT Jeremiah Poutasi. Levitre's job is in danger.

Titans signed OT Byron Bell, formerly of the Panthers, to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

Bell was one of the worst pass blockers in the league last year, allowing nine sacks over 15 starts. He's graded near the bottom of PFF's rankings the past three seasons. Bell will compete with Byron Stingily for Tennessee's right tackle job.

Free agent OT Byron Bell is visiting the Titans Monday.

Bell was dumped by the Panthers after four mostly poor seasons. Right tackle is a need for the Titans in the wake of Michael Roos' retirement and Taylor Lewan's move to the left side.

Free agent OT Byron Bell worked out for the Chiefs on Wednesday.

Bell entered the league as an UDFA in 2011 and was immediately inserted as the starter at right tackle. He's made 66 starts the past four seasons, but it has not gone smoothly. Bell routinely graded out near the bottom of PFF's tackle rankings on the right side, and the Panthers were forced to move him to left tackle last season where he surrendered 60 combined sacks, hits, and hurries.
Fri, Apr 10, 2015 08:28:00 AM

The Associated Press confirms that the Panthers have informed free agent LT Byron Bell that he will not be re-signed.

Bell himself alluded to the news on social media Monday. Thrust into left-tackle duties last season following the retirement of Jordan Gross, Bell struggled mightily. He'll search for work as a right or swing tackle. Bell has dabbled at guard in the past, but always struggled on the inside.
Tue, Feb 24, 2015 03:15:00 PM

Free agent LT Byron Bell announced on his Instagram that he will not be back with the Panthers in 2015.

The caption reads, "It's been real in Carolina now time to see where the Lord takes me next." The fact Carolina wouldn't even consider Bell for a backup role shows just how poorly he played in 2014. Look for the Panthers to add a tackle early on draft day.
Mon, Feb 23, 2015 06:02:00 PM

Panthers LT Byron Bell will return from his knee injury in Week 10.

He'll start against the Eagles on Monday Night Football. Undrafted rookie replacement David Foucault was badly exposed in last Thursday night's loss to the Saints, coughing up repeated hits as Junior Galette simply ran around him and pushed him back with power moves. Bell isn't exactly a stout blind-side protection, but his return should help Cam Newton's cause in Week 10.
