Yeremiah Bell was widely considered to be a depth option for whichever team he landed with this season.
Brian Costello of the New York Post reported Bell, a longtime Dolphin, was signed to start alongside former Redskin LaRon Landry. Rich Cimini of ESPN New York confirmed Costello's report.
That would mean he'll play in place of last-year starter Eric Smith, which is probably an upgrade.
Bell led the Dolphins last year in tackles, and while he is more or less average in pass defense, he's a very solid run defender.
