Demetrius Bell Drawing Interest From Cardinals, Redskins

New, comments

Buffalo Bills free agent offensive tackle Demetrius Bell made his second free agent visit of the week on Friday, spending some quality time with Dan Snyder and the free-spending Washington Redskins, per several reports.

Bell made a stop in Tempe to visit with the Arizona Cardinals earlier in the week - a team that at the time was without the services of tackle Levi Brown, having just released him. Brown has since been re-signed to a five-year deal, but the thought is that Arizona remains interested in signing Bell so that they can move Brown to right tackle.

Bills GM Buddy Nix told reporters earlier this week that the team made an offer to Bell prior to the start of free agency, but that the team never received any sort of counter-offer. Clearly, Bell and his agent wanted to test the open market, and it appears that there's now a bidding war for Bell between the Cardinals and Redskins.

The chances are very high, then, that the Bills will be looking for a tackle - likely a young one - to compete with second-year pro Chris Hairston to be the team's starting left tackle next season.
