The agent for free agent safety Yeremiah Bell and the Eagles best pal Drew Rosenhaus said today that former Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell will sign with Eagles, Jets, Chiefs or Titans "within the next 24 hours."
Andy Reid seemed content with his stable of young safeties at minicamp last weekend, but they've obviously said and done different things in the past.
That said, signing Bell wouldn't be a huge vote of no confidence in their young safety corps. At 34, Bell is not likely to get much more than a one year deal and probably won't be prohibitively expensive either. He would likely slide into the strong safety spot next to Nate Allen.
Bell led the Dolphins in tackles in 2008 and 2009 and racked up another 101 stops last season. Given the Eagles' struggles in that department last year, Bell's tackling would be a welcome addition to the secondary.
With the Eagles reportedly having the most cap space in the NFL right now, there's certainly room to add Bell. We'll let you know when Bell makes his decision.
