Yeremiah Bell has found his new NFL home.
A league source tells PFT’s Mike Florio that Bell has signed with the Jets on a one-year, $1.4 million contract. The deal includes a $200,000 signing bonus, a $1.1 million fully guaranteed base salary and a $100,000 workout bonus.
Bell was expected to sign today after making visits to the Eagles, Jets, Chiefs and Titans since being released by the Dolphins, and now the deal with the Jets is done.
For the Jets, who went into the offseason with bolstering the safety position as one of their top priorities, have now added two in free agency, Bell and LaRon Landry. They also spent a sixth-round draft pick on safety Josh Bush and a seventh-round draft pick on safety Antonio Allen.
The 34-year-old Bell has played his entire eight-year career with the Dolphins. He started all 16 games last year.
