Worth a look surely????
Strange, I recall him being somewhat decent.
Has the Dolphins off-season been anything but strange?
Can he cover?
Strange would be an understatement.
And yet in this off-season of 99% stupidity they managed to do one thing right and get my FA binkie.
Who was your FA binkie??
EDIT: Must be Richard Marshall.. Yeah, I was hoping the Pats would look at him too..
Miami actually has a pretty solid defense. They just don't have an offense.. Though I have a feeling that Tebow will end up there to the tune of 2 - 3rd round draft choices.
Low risk high reward.
doesnt look like it
NFL | Dolphins release longtime SS Yeremiah Bell - Rotoworld.com
Not Moss thats for sure. Pats made a living getting on top of him for big plays. That was great stuff.
Need to jump all over him as simply a guy who you can put in the secondary who, at least, knows what he's supposed to be doing and how to make a tackle
Draft a true free safety too and that's the whole position sorted
What the hell are the Dolphins doing?
Sucking for Barkley.
It would be funny if they started winning games late in the season that take them out of the race. Kinda like what happened to them with the Luck sweepstakes.
Blow for Barkley
to add more fuel to that they've just signed david garrard, woop woop
34 Years old and was a CAP casualty. Over 100 tackles each of the last four seasons. Not the greatest in coverage but better than we have had recently. Cheaper than Landry and durable.
I don't know.Can't see us going into the Draft with only two Safeties.
Best Safety in the Draft could be......Zak Brown.If you wanted Landry, this is a better option. 6'1" 232LBS. was hand timed at 4.29 40. 60 meter record holder at UNC. Coverage is his top skill. All over the field. Can rush, can tackle Covers best.Must better athlete than Barron.
There is your Safety. Check out his info and tell me I am wrong.
Buckle for Barkley perhaps.
Crash into a tree for Barkley
My neighbor (the dolphins fan) is freaking out about Bell being let go. Seriously, only jests fans deserve to go through this much crap.
He said Bell is the best DB on Miami and a big reason why the D was so good. Belichik will grab him instantly and that seriously would be huge the Pats.
Updated: Yeremiah Bell released
Uhh...shouldn't the Pats be all over this? Seems like the veteran stop-gap needed right now.
Stephen Ross' wikipedia is amusing
Stephen M. Ross - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If Bell is viewed as Sergio's or Diggy's replacement, and is willing to play for the vet minimum,
then I'd be OK with signing him.
But his coverage ability would make Chung look like Ed Reed by comparison.
There's no way that both of them should be on the field at the same time, except in
We need somebody to play beside Chung who excells in coverage, so that some of last year's
long completions become incompletions or - better still - interceptions.
I wouldn't be surprised to learn that whoever wrote Ross' wiki page was fired by him previously.
Exactly. Sign Bell for 1-2 years and then draft Mark Barron. Then we have 4 serviceable safeties compared to 1 (and only for half a season) last season....
Exactly why I still feel as though there's no better option at the present moment than one of the hybrid CB's, such as McCourty or Moore.
I'm not saying that's the way it should necessarily be come September, even though there's some basis of an argument that would support it--especially if the Pats draft another CB in April; but due to a lack of any better suitors, it sure seems as though it should at least be considered.
Of course the season doesn't start for quite some time, so I would expect it to be addressed via the draft and also a possible vet signing.
Barron may be the popular choice to be the #1 rated safety in the draft, but there's a lot of doubt about whether he'll be a good NFL player.
I'm not 100% sold on him either, and he may not even be available when we get to 27 anyway.
I think they target someone in the 2nd/3rd round, but of course we're all just guessing when it comes to the draft, so who knows what will happen?
No....he sucks....and don't call me Shirley!
