Byron Bell Signs Tender

Offensive tackle Byron Bell has signed his restricted-free agent tender with the Panthers, reports Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. It is a second-round tender, and will be worth $2.187MM.

The Panthers are in need of a starting left tackle since stalwart Jordan Gross retired earlier this offseason, and Person writes that some in the Panthers’ organization believe Bell could fill in to protect Cam Newton‘s blind side.

Bell played on the right side for his first three NFL seasons. Now that Bell is officially under contract, the Seahawks’ Doug Baldwin is the final restricted-free agent yet to sign.
