BREAKING: Yeremiah Bell to Sign with the Jets, per source

It looks like safety Yeremiah Bell has chosen his green team, and it’s not the Eagles.

A league source is telling Pro Football Talk that Bell has chosen the Jets over the other team involved, the Philadelphia Eagles. Jason LaCanfora is reporting the contract is for one year and $1.4 million, including a $200,000 signing bonus, as well as a $100,000 workout bonus. $1.1 million base salary is fully guaranteed.

Bell, formerly of the Dolphins, has 6 INTs for his career to go along with 9 forced fumbles. He certainly will aid the Jets defense as the lack of quality play at safety is well documented.

It may mark the end of Jim Leonhard, as the Jets have not resigned him previously, and now they have Bell. They might not sign Leonhard again at all.
