Financials of free-agent deals
According to Aaron Wilson (better known as @RavensInsider on Twitter), Yeremiah Bell signed a $905,000 contract with the Cardinals Wednesday – $610,000 of which is guaranteed.
Just a year ago, Bell signed a $1.4 million deal (including $1.3 million guaranteed) with the Jets after playing eight seasons in Miami. The former Jets safety was signed by Arizona as a replacement ex-Jet Kerry Rhodes, who was released the same day.
In a flurry of free-agent defections Wednesday, Bell, fellow safety LaRon Landry and running back Shonn Greene all signed deals with other teams.
Greene signed a three-year, $10 million deal with the Tennessee Titans and, according to Wilson, received a $2.5 million bonus. His base salaries per year are: $1.65 million, $2.3 million and $3.25 million.
Landry chose to sign with the Colts, inking a four-year, $24 million deal that reportedly includes $14 million guaranteed.
