Former Cardinals safety Yeremiah Bell annouces retirement in hometown newspaper

AP Image The Arizona Cardinals made veteran free agent safety Yeremiah Bell one of their first signings when the new regime of general manager Steve Keim and Bruce Arians started to rebuild the team in 2013. Bell was never a popular signing for the Cardinals faithful, he was 35-years old at the time and the team had just released to fan favorites at the same position Bell played...

Yeremiah Bell retires after 11 NFL seasons

Safety Yeremiah Bell wasn’t supposed to play in the NFL. Instead, he made it, and he lasted for more than a decade. Bell tells the Winchester (Ky.) Sun that it’s time to move on. “I’m done,” Bell said. “It’s not official because my agent hasn’t turned in the papers yet but within myself, I’ve played my career.” Before nine seasons with the Dolphins (five as...

Cardinals get good (very early) marks for Bucannon pick

The first-round grades are in -- yes, even though there are six rounds yet to be held -- and the internet consensus on the Cardinals' selection of safety Deone Bucannon at No. 27 seems to be "good player, decent pick." While not a sexy, big-name pick, Bucannon fills a need for the Cardinals, who have not appeared interested in bringing back last year's starter at...

Cardinals need upgrade at strong safety

Yeremiah Bell remains unsigned and may be leaning towards retirement, Tyrann Mathieu may not be ready for the start of the season and the Cardinals have a trio of largely inexperienced players behind veteran Rashad Johnson. A strong safety would seem like a logical choice in the earlier rounds of this year's NFL Draft, which runs May 8-10.  "We need more depth going into...

Arizona Cardinals: Why drafting an outside linebacker is biggest need

If the Arizona Cardinals were to draft by need alone, then pick 20 could be any number of things, chief among them a safety, tight end, linebacker, quarterback or right tackle. Not that any of those positions are a glaring weakness – but when a team has as many areas they can improve in as the Cardinals do, it is the same as having no needs, meaning they won’t be limited to...

Lost in the hype surrounding the Arizona Cardinals' cornerback pairing of Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie are question marks at safety.

New York Jets have plenty of options with four compensatory draft picks

The New York Jets lost a lot more free agents than they gained in 2013, and it’s payed off in 2014. At least in hindsight. Monday, the Jets were awarded a league-high (tied with the Baltimore Ravens) four compensatory draft picks — a late fourth-rounder and three fourth-rounders. Here’s how it broke down: Players lost (in 2013): Yeremiah Bell, Mike DeVito, Shonn Greene, Dustin...

Which Top 10 free agent DB could help Arizona?

The defensive backfield is a position of flux for the Arizona Cardinals. They would be in the market for some help in the defensive backfield given everything that is going on with Patrick Peterson (holdout?), Tyrann Mathieu (recovering from knee surgery) and the pool of impending free agents at the position (Yeremiah Bell, Antoine Cason et al.)

Cards rewind: Campbell hopes to play after injury scare

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The most important takeaway from Sunday's 32-20 loss in San Francisco is that defensive end Calais Campbell is going to be OK. Campbell was wheeled off the field on a stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital for tests after feeling numbness and tingling in his extremities that went "all the way down to my feet," but he was back at the Cardinals complex...

Arizona Cardinals 2013 free agents

It’s NFL 101, if the old team doesn’t want the player, there’s no need to overpay for that player to get him to come in. Maybe that was the old regime, honestly Rod Graves did no favors to the Cardinals when it comes to roster or cap management, but maybe it’s because they felt the pressure to continue success, success that they had never had before.

New York Jets: Franchise tag options

Each offseason, every NFL team changes up its roster in an effort to improve the quality of the team. Some teams are more successful than others. Last offseason was quite tumultuous (definitely not exciting) for the New York Jets—the most notable change would be the addition of Tim Tebow. This offseason is poised to be a bit more exciting.

2013 New York Jets free agents: Keep or ditch?

The New York Jets are in salary cap hell. There are a lot of holes to fill on their roster, but unfortunately due to their precarious financial situation, they are not exactly in the position to acquire great players through trades or free agency. Combine that with the fact that several must-have players are going to be free agents, and it’s like former general manager planned...
