Byron Bell working out for Jets on Monday

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Free agent offensive lineman Byron Bell is getting a workout with the Jets today.

Bell entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of New Mexico in 2011. He spent his first four NFL seasons with the Carolina Panthers before a two years stint with the Tennessee Titans and one year with the Dallas Cowboys. As Pelissero notes, the 29 year old Bell has been a starter for much of his career, although a dislocated ankle cost him his entire 2016 and led to him taking a backup spot in Dallas in 2017.

Bell has primarily been a tackle during his career, although he does have some experience working inside.

The Jets don’t have a ton of depth on their offensive line. A player available like Bell at this time of year is usually available for a reason so I am not sure how much his signing would help. The Jets are intrigued enough to take a look, though.
