The Jets brought Bell in for a workout earlier this month (NFLTR) but did not sign him to a deal.
Last year, the Packers actually showed interest in Bell before he agreed to a deal with the Cowboys.
Bell, 29, 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 2016 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. The Cowboys signed Bell to a contract last March and he had been testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2017, Bell appeared in 12 games for the Cowboys and played a total of 243 snaps.
