Strong safety Yeremiah Bell was released by the Miami Dolphins, who also signed linebacker Jamaal Westerman from the division-rival Jets and re-signed defensive tackle Ryan Baker. Bell led the team with 107 tackles last season, but was also bothered by a turf toe injury. Originally a sixth-round pick in 2003, Bell started all but one game over the past four seasons and has the reputation of being a big hitter. But the Dolphins will clear 4.3 million in salary cap space with the move. Westerman was an undrafted free agent out of Rutgers signed by the Jets in 2009, and has started three of 36 career games. He had 3.5 of his 4.5 career sacks last season, and can also play special teams in Miami. He had surgery after the season to repair a groin that troubled him throughout the year. Baker was signed by the Dolphins as an undrafted rookie out of Purdue in 2009. He appeared in just two games, registering one tackle, last season.
