Former EKU star safety Yeremiah Bell joins talented Jets secondary
May 28, 2012KentuckySports.co
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.
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.
