Earlier in the day we passed along that Bills free agent OT Demetrius Bell was visiting with the Steelers Friday. That may not be the only free agent visit he makes in the state of Pennsylvania this weekend.
According to NBC 10 in Philadelphia’s Howard Eskin, Bell will visit with the Eagles as well.
Howard Eskin I hear Eagles bringing in Bills FA left tackle demetrius Bell in this weekend. Top FA left tackle out there. Son of Karl Malone.
Philadelphia’s interest wouldn’t be the least bit surprising after the report earlier today that their starting left tackle Jason Peters suffered a ruptured achilles in offseason training. There’s no indication that a bidding war will ensue for Bell, who has already visited Arizona and Washington in addition to Pittsburgh today. But if multiple teams begin making offers, Pittsburgh will be out of the running quickly as they’re tight against the salary cap.
