    They don't think Barron is going to make it to 16 and don't want to trade up for him. Given the circumstances, this is about as good as we can do. Can complain about being in this position, but not the signing itself (if it were to occur).

    Very true. Not every position of need is going to be ideally filled this season. I would rather sign Bell and address the pass rush and WR in the draft. The Jets desperately need some weapons on offense, a WR who can come in and play right away and an all around threat RB are necessities this year.

    Not a bad stopgap for a year or two.

    he's played well against us the past 2 years, imo.

    Another SS type player though, do they keep Smith on the roster (at his salary) if they add Bell?

    Don't forget we get Cumberland back, if he's healthy he will give other teams fits. Just a feeling, this guy can open thinks up with Sporano.

    i am not opposed to signing bell... Tanny generally likes to try an fill in as many holes as possible (prior to draft) to avoid drafting for need.. However, I generally think the Jets target bap based on need...

    I think the Jets can get a veteran OT (Carey / Mckenzie), WR (Edwards) in post draft FA... Bell would take some pressure off safety position considering not a deep draft for safeties..


    Then one area they can't address in FA is Pass Rush.. so that is where they go in draft early.....

    I view Cumberland as a complete bonus if he does anything this year. IF he is able to recover from the achilles and not lose any of his speed, then he could be a nice complement to the offense. We'll see.

    completely agree...and don't be surprised if they take pass rushers with the first 2 picks if the talent is sitting there

    After reviewing his stats Bell wouldn't be a bad pick up at the vet minimum

    [url]http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/4671/yeremiah-bell[/url]

    He's shown to be very durable and is an active tackler

    Good for depth in an area sorely lacking it. I'll take it. :yes:

    If he is so solid, why did the dolphins cut him?

    "He was due a $4.3 million base salary and carried a $6.2 million salary-cap figure heading into the final year of his contract."

    34 year old safety w/ that type of $. Easy decision to move on.

    He wouldn't play FS. He'd be insurance should Landry get hurt. If they sign Bell, Smith could be cut. Is Smith cuttable?

    very cut-able, for both cap savings and performance.

    I checked with Arod.

    The dude's 34.

    Pass.

    :rolleyes:

    But seriously, I agree with Sec. We're not going to fill every position of need with a draft pick. Especially as a potential starter.

    Smith is 100% cuttable. They actually save 2.5 million by cutting him. That being case, sadly it does appear Rex loves Smith, so I dont think he is going anywhere.
