Yeremiah Bell Signs With New York Jets Over Philadelphia Eagles

Yeremiah Bell has chosen the New York Jets over the Philadelphia Eagles, according to NBC's Pro Football Talk.

Bell, a 34-year old safety, notched 107 tackles, two sacks and one interception for the Miami Dolphins in 2011. Over eight NFL seasons, all with the Dolphins, Bell has 562 tackles, 11.5 sacks and six interceptions. He made the Pro Bowl in 2009 after amassing 114 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions.

The Jets spent the offseason looking to solidify their secondary with an upgrade at safety. They signed LaRon Landry in March, but have still been looking to build more depth, especially due to Landry's injury concerns. Bell was ranked the second-worst defensive player on the Dolphins last season by Pro Football Focus, but he has not missed a single game in the past four seasons.
