This is the first reported interest in Bell since free agency got under way close to a month ago.
Bell, 26, signed on with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of New Mexico back in 2011. He finished out his rookie contract before receiving a second-round tender from the Panthers worth $2.187 million last year.
In 2014, Bell appeared in 15 games for the Panthers and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 83 offensive tackle out of 84 qualifying players.
