After being released this winter after signing a huge contract, I think that confirms the decision made by Buffalo not to give that free agent a huge contract. I will be curious just how little a contract Dallas will sign him to if he passes the physical. Another example of why not to give a Free Agent a big contract when he is not integral to your team being a winner.

Big question, Will he change the spelling of his name again? maybe this time go with Belle?

He's going to go with Bella due to his affection for the Vampire Diaries.  LOL.

You would have to think vets minimum with a heavily incentive based short term contract. just shows how desperate the cowgirls are for LT help.

Quite possibly his last NFL shot before heading to Canada.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com says they are looking at him as competition for Doug Free at Right Tackle.

Can wait to watch 1 the 10 games that Dallas plays on prime time.the announcers will talk about how Jerry stole him and he's the best young tackle in the league.

Bell seems like he can still be a decent backup. When Bell was at his best he was a slightly above average LT but he got hurt and hasn't really been any good since he had that one year.

I often criticized the old Nix regime, but they were right on in not overpaying him. And now I see Jones was released by the Patriots already, so again it looks like they made some good decisions. And the Patriots are seriously short at experienced WR and TE talent going into the start of the season if Gronk isn't ready.

I don't know.

Changing his name to a girl's spelling didn't seem to help his career.

I can't see him doubling down on that strategy.

too weak to be a reg starter, needs to get stronger or will always be mediocre.

These overly inflated free agent signings will probably not occur as much as in recent years due to teams getting burned on a regular basis.  Bell, Posluzny, and Whitner are recent departures that teams have received very little from, and that has to have an impact somehow.

7th round pick who barely played football before college & had scumbag for a father. Working on like his 7th year getting paid to play football. Good for him and that's a great draft pick.
