Back on March 19 the Miami Dolphins released former Pro Bowl safety Yeremiah Bell. And while the market for the 34-year-old safety wasn’t initially hot, that appears to be changing.
Bell’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said on 7SportsXtra in Miami this morning that the Eagles, along with the Jets and Patriots, have expressed interest in his client.
Bell, an eight-year veteran out of Eastern Kentucky, had 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 remember, Bell, who made the Pro Bowl in 2009, has connections with new Eagles secondary coach Todd Bowles. 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.
