Former EKU star safety Yeremiah Bell joins talented Jets secondary

May 28, 2012



Dennis Waszak Jr. with the AP wrote this article about Yeremiah Bell joining the Jets who are the bitter rivals of his former team the Miami Dolphins. 

Here are a couple parts of the article:

The Jets certainly are happy they don't have to face Bell anymore. He has had four straight seasons with at least 100 tackles, and racked up 61 tackles and five passes defensed in 14 career games against New York.


Bell is slated to step in and start for the Jets, and his signing - a one-year contract worth $1.4 million - is looking even more important lately with LaRon Landry not attending any of the voluntary OTA sessions so far. Landry, recovering from a foot injury that cut short his season with the Redskins last year, is also taking care of what Revis said the players were told was ''a family issue.''

Yeremiah attended George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester Kentucky which is about 25 minutes to the east of Lexington on I-64. Other notable people from Winchester include Daniel Boone and Preston Knowles.

During Bell's EKU career he won the Ohio Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 2001 before being drafted in the 6th round by the Dolphins in 2003. Bell originally began as a member of the Dolphins practice squad and has worked his way into a starter during the 2006 season and has recorded over 100 tackles every season since 2008.
