Its a 1 yr deal for Bell, hes had over 100 tackles the past 4 seasons so how bad can he be? Gives us some depth.
    No, only Ryan Clark didn't want to sign with the Dolphins. He even admitted after he re-signed with the Steelers in 2010 that the visit to Miami was a contract ploy. Funny how his story has changed. I guess all the free agents Miami signed this offseason didn't get the memo. lol

    As for Bell, his play dropped off last year and his stats were inflated. He probably won't start in New York, and as people in the Eagles organization said "he is done". That is two organizations(Dolphins, Eagles) that don't see much of anything left in the tank.

    Then why did Philly extend an offer to him if they felt he was done? He was deciding btw 2 offers today- us and philly.

    Yeremiah Bell made his choice and it was not the Eagles.

    The free agent safety signed a one-year contract with the New York Jets, an NFL confirmed, after he narrowed his choices down to two teams.

    The Eagles and Jets made the same offer at one point Friday morning, a source close to the situation said.

    "at one point Friday"

    Might have been the veteran minimum but the Jets stepped up by overpaying. That is a strong possibility. Just because most in the organization think he is done doesn't mean there is one that wants to take a chance(probably Sparano). Don't expect much from Bell.

    im kinda chuckling. so they get landry....that wasnt really a smooth move as he was still injured or something. Now bell comes along. Its more a sign they cant seem to get the position right. Sounds like us in the past. lol

    Bell sucked in first half and then started that nonsense where Bush responded and then Bell had a good game or two. Thats what you will get from Bell. a Good play or two. Hopefully, its against the Pats and not us.

    Yep, I'm sure the Jets blew him out of the water w/ that incredible 1 year deal at just over a million(great money for us but slumming for an NFL vet)

    Keep making those excuses.

    I don't expect much from him outside of quality depth but he was wanted by other teams.

    The difference between Taylor and Bell is that Bell was willing to take anything. If he didn't take the Jets offer he might have went to the CFL or retired. Just an extra paycheck for Bell.

    We carried Taylor further than he ever made it w/ Miami so maybe we can do the same w/ Bell?

    or the number of other teams that were interested before he narrowed his choices down to Philly(my preseason favorite to win it all) and the Jets.

    What excuses? This signing is a minor blip on the radar, really doesn't bother me and I wasn't even going to post until Jetsfan0099 made that ridiculous post. This signing is more of a "hey look Dolphins we signed your guy" kind of move. Doesn't add much to what happens on the field more of a buzz move.
