Schefter: Philadelphia Eagles sign Mike Bell to offer sheet

New, comments

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Eagles have signed Saints' RB Mike Bell to a one year, $1.7 million offer sheet. His agent has confirmed this report.

Since Bell is a restricted free agent, the Saints now have seven days to match the Eagles' offer. Should they choose not to match, they would receive no compensation because Bell was tendered at the lowest level(right of first refusal). Bell earned about $540k last year, so $1.7 million would be a significant raise for a team already scheduled to pay RB Reggie Bush over $8 million next year & RB Pierre Thomas $1.6 million(they may look to sign him to an even bigger long term deal).
