Former Miami Dolphins Safety Yeremiah Bell to Meet With Kansas City Chiefs

MIAMI GARDENS, FL - SEPTEMBER 12: Running back Danny Woodhead of the New England Patriots is tackled by Yeremiah Bell.

Former Miami Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell has been making the rounds as a free agent since he was released by the Dolphins in mid-March. Bell, who spent last year as one of the Dolphins' captains, has been linked to the New York Jets, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Tennessee Titans already. Now, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the leading tackler for Miami the past three years, will meet with the Kansas City Chiefs today.

The Chiefs meeting comes just one day after Bell meet with the Titans, who also met with Chris Crocker yesterday. Crocker was released by the Falcons this offseason, and has previously played for the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, and the Dolphins during his 10-year career.

Bell could fit in nicely with the Chiefs, who could be looking for a starting safety to team up with Eric Berry. Berry, who played strong safety last year, would probably be moved to free safety if the team added Bell.

Despite the belief that Bell would sign for a contract near the league veteran minimum, there have not been many options for the former Pro Bowler. Teams keep kicking the tires on Bell, but no one seems to be ready to sign the nine-year veteran. Bell has spent his entire career with the Dolphins.

In fact, the prevailing sentiment seems to be that Bell may not be signed at all at this point. According to Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Jeff McLane, the Eagles have not signed Bell for one simple reason:

While all it takes is one team to take a flyer on Bell - and that team could still be the Dolphins, though the longer Bell remains unsigned, the harder that is to imagine - the fact that teams seem to be taking a look, and then going in a different direction, can't be a good sign for a player who has stopped 100 tackles year of the last four seasons. If the Chiefs don't bite, it could be the end of the line for a solid member of the Dolphins defense over the past few seasons.
