Following up on Yeremiah Bell

April, 9, 2012
Agent Drew Rosenhaus said Sunday night that free-agent safety Yeremiah Bell is drawing interest from the Patriots, Jets and Eagles (Miami Herald link).

Last Thursday, that interest was charactetized by Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel in the "post-draft category."

Any link between the Patriots and available safeties isn't surprising, as the position is widely viewed as an area of need for the team. One reason for any team/player to wait until after the draft in situations like these is that a high draft pick could change the outlook.
