The Eagles missed out on safety LaRon Landry earlier today, but a very interesting name just hit the market moments ago.
According to multiple reports, the Dolphins have released starting strong safety Yeremiah Bell.
Bell, an eight-year veteran out of Eastern Kentucky, has long been a fixture in Miami’s secondary.
The 34-year-old has played in each of the Dolphins’ 48 games over the past four seasons and finished second on the team in 2011 with 107 total tackles.
And Bell, who made the Pro Bowl in 2009, has connections with new Eagles secondary coach Todd Bowles–thanks to Jeff Warner (@Jeff1470TheFox) of Sports Radio 1470 AM for pointing this out. Bowles joined the Eagles staff earlier this offseason after spending the past four seasons as Miami’s secondary coach.
When Bowles was named interim head coach of the Dolphins in 2011, Bell spoke highly of his coach.
“He 360’d my game,” Bell said.
With the Eagles’ uncertainty at safety position, this is one name to definitely keep an eye on in the coming days.
