Mike Garafolo reports that Bell receives a three-year contract worth $18 million and includes $11.5 million guaranteed.
Bell had to wait until the second week of free agency to find a new home but it ended up working out well for Cincinnati, which adds another major piece to its secondary.

According to OverTheCap.com, Bell received a four-year contract worth $5,118,974 to go along with a signing bonus of $1,922,888. He made a base salary of $991,677 in 2019.
In 2019, Bell appeared in 13 games for the Saints and recorded 89 tackles, 1.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries including one returned for a touchdown, one interception and five pass defenses.
