The Jets have expressed interest in former Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus. Bell, 34, was released by Miami last month.

Rosenhaus told a television station in South Florida on Sunday night that the Eagles and Patriots are also interested, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Bell, who played eight seasons in Miami, was the Dolphins' leading tackler last season at strong safety.

Agreed, but this "Anyone but Eric Smith" policy secures only mediocrity. Let's try to upgrade the position for the long-term rather than just bringing in any old JAG.

Agreed, but there is nothing to say you can't sign said old JAG just to ensure that the NFL's single worst starting safety is taken off of the field while still continuing to try to upgrade the position throughout the remainder of the offseason via FA, the draft and even UDFA.

Old or not, anything that gets Eric Smith off the field more is a win. As long as Bell is capable of remaining on his feet throughout a play, he's an instant upgrade.

Saying as long as is the same as saying "if" and if was a fifth I would offer you a shot.....

I would like to see us replace smith who needs to be replaced with someone younger (than 34 anyway) if at all possible.

BG, you know as well as I do that when the Jets sign a JAG, the position is fixed. They're not going to bring in a young player to compete with him and then cut the JAG when he loses his job. That's not what we do. Signing Yeremiah Bell = still having the worst safeties in the NFL and having no youth at the position to boot.

You don't even suck worse than Smith. Seriously, the criteria for being better is not falling over on your ******* face every two seconds.

I don't know man, that doesn't mean much...have you seen Hess ballhawking back there? He puts Ed Reed to shame. Truth.

Ugh, I guess you're right. I'm just so desperate to get more safeties on this roster not named Eric Smith.

Steve A****er, FTW!

At least Atwater and Lott were elite at their position though old as dirt when the Jets signed them. Bell on the other hand, not so much...

When Brian Dawkins contract up? lol

I agree with you but at least getting Smith the F off the field is a start.

Hard to leave Riggins and Favre off that list.
