Former Miami Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell may not need too much more time to find a new NFL team to play for in 2012, and it appears as if he may not even have to leave the division.
After being released by the Dolphins, Bell has reportedly been courted by the New England Patriots and New York Jets, as well as the Philadelphia Eagles. While the Jets signed LaRon Landry to go along with their already impressive defensive backfield and the Eagles love to stockpile cover guys, it is the Patriots who should pursue Bell the hardest.
Miami could still make a play to bring back Bell, although they do not appear likely to go down that route. More than likely, the Dolphins will look to draft more secondary help in the 2012 NFL Draft in a few weeks, although it would probably not be in the first round, unless they trade up for LSU CB Morris Claiborne.
The Patriots could use the services of Bell the most of the aforementioned three teams reportedly in pursuit, and they would also...

In the NFL Draft, teams often find themselves drafting players close to home. This phenomenon is not about it being easier to cultivate local talent, it’s about building a relationship with players. It just happens to be, that in most cases, college players are more apt to build pipeline relationships with teams close to [...]
Miami Dolphins defensive end Phillip Merling and offensive tackle Lydon Murtha signed their restricted free agent tenders on Tuesday.
Merling collected just four tackles in 10 games last season and has 66 in 47 career contests. The 26-year-old also has 3.5 sacks and one interception in his career.
Murtha, 26, has been with the Dolphins for the past three seasons after he was signed...
The problems of the Philadelphia Eagles secondary in 2011 are no secret. So a report that the team is interested in former Miami Dolphin Yeremiah Bell is not terribly surprising.
The interest was relayed to a Miami television station via Bell’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, according to the Miami Herald.
Bell (6’5, 205) was the longest-tenured player on the Dolphins (8 years) and was...
The Miami Dolphins have had issues at the quarterback position ever since Dan Marino retired. Chad Pennington had a good year for them and Jay Fiedler wasn't terrible, however it stops there.
Four long years ago the Dolphins passed on Matt Ryan to select left tackle Jake Long with the first overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. They continued on to the second round where they...
On Monday, Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler menionted on his Twitter feed that he had just landed in Miami, Florida. He’s clearly there to visit with the Dolphins, who could end up taking him in this year’s draft.

Sorry we haven’t been on our A game as of late, however there hasn’t been much to report on in Dolphins land.
Recent Dolphins buzz includes a tweet from the Arizona QB who tweeted, RT @BrockOsweiler Just landed in Miami...excited about my visit with the Dolphins!
For Dolphins fans who don’t know Brock, think Chad Henne but maybe even a little worse. A second round pick would...
