Cowboys Signing OL Byron Bell

Update:

Todd Archer reports that the Cowboys have reached an agreement on a contract with veteran OL Byron Bell.

Offensive line probably doesn’t seem like a big need for the Cowboys, but RT Doug Free recently decided to retire from the NFL, so the addition of Bell at least gives them some options moving forward.

Clarence Hill reports that the Cowboys are bringing in veteran OL Byron Bell for a visit on Friday.

This is the third reported visit for Bell after he recently met with the 49ers and Packers.

Bell, 28, originally signed on with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of New Mexico back in 2011. He played out his rookie contract with the Panthers before signing a one-year, $2.25 million contract with the Titans back in March of last year that included $650,000 guaranteed.

Bell, unfortunately, missed the entire 2016 season after he sustained a dislocated ankle last summer and was subsequently placed on injured reserve.

In 2015, Bell appeared in all 16 games for the Titans and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 38 offensive tackle out of 77 qualifying players that season.
