Jets Free Agency 2012: New York Taking A Look At Yeremiah Bell

The New York Jets are continuing their free agency period by taking a gander at Yeremiah Bell, the ex-Miami Dolphin strong safety, according to Mike Florio or NBC Sports Talk.

Bell, 34, was cut by Miami this offseason and is looking for a home. The Jets already signed LaRon Landry who is younger and by all accounts the more talented player at this point in his career.

However, Bell could serve as nice depth and someone to have as an insurance policy should Jim Leonhard be re-signed and then get injured again.

All of this activity could point to New York passing on Alabama safety Mark Barron in the NFL Draft on Thursday. Barron has been linked many times over to Gang Green but it appears as though the spot might be filled by a veteran.

Perhaps the Jets are trying to lock up a safety so they can more aggressively pursue a pass-rusher once they're on the clock.
