Former Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals safety Yeremiah Bell announced his retirement from football after a 10-year career.
Former Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins strong safety Yeremiah Bell announced his retirement from the NFL on Sunday.
The former safety is currently 36, and he had spent 10 seasons in the NFL. The majority of it was with the Dolphins, where he made a Pro Bowl trip in 2009.
That year, Bell came up with 114 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions. He had also notched at least 100 tackles in three other seasons of his career.
Bell was well-known for being a hard-hitting safety throughout his career, and he brought that type of ferocity to the Cardinals defense in his final season and helped it become one of the top units in the NFL. He added 77 tackles and two interceptions to his resume in 2013.
Bell officially announced his retirement. “I’m done (with playing football). It’s not official because my agent hasn’t turned in the papers yet but within myself, I’ve played my career (in the NFL),” the former safety told the Central Kentucky News.
