Former Dolphins, Jets, and Cardinals safety Yeremiah Bell has submitted his retirement papers to the league, writes Keith Taylor of the Winchester Sun. Although his retirement is not yet official, Bell has clearly indicated he is done playing football. “I had fun,” he said. “I had a great career and I lived the dream.”
Bell was drafted by the Dolphins in the sixth round of the 2003 draft and spent nine years in Miami. His best statistical season came in 2009, when he picked up three interceptions, 114 total tackles, and a Pro Bowl nod. Over the course of his career, Bell racked up eight picks, 13 sacks, and 726 total tackles.
Our Matt Feminis wrote back in April that Bell was expected to retire despite having been offered a one-year deal from the Cardinals. He has now taken the steps to make that retirement official.
