    Jets Add Safety Depth - Sign Yeremiah Bell

    posted by: Site Admin | 0 comments | Jets Free Agent Signings

    The New York Jets added another veteran safety to their roster, as they agreed to a 1-year contract with S Yeremiah Bell, who played his entire 8-year career for the Miami Dolphins. Bell's deal is reportedly worth $1.4M, which includes a $1.1M base salary, which is guaranteed, plus a $200,000 signing bonus and a $100,000 workout bonus. This move could spell the end to S Jim Leonhard's tenure with the Gang Green. Bell is expected to back up another free agent acquisition, S LaRon Landry, at the strong safety position, while S Eric Smith is expected to start at free safety. Although, as we all know, Smith is prone to getting exposed in pass coverage and the Jets could use an upgrade there as well.
