NFL Free Agency 2012: Demetress Bell Joins Eagles, Cardinals Must Look Elsewhere

According to multiple reports including one from USA Today's Robert Klemko, The Philadelphia Eagles have signed free agent OT Demetress Bell to a one year deal, leaving the Arizona Cardinals to look elsewhere to help shore up their O-line next season.

"Demetress is a guy we've followed since he joined the league," general manager Howie Roseman said in a statement from the Eagles. "He's a big, athletic left tackle and he has quite a few games of experience under his belt with Buffalo. He'll excel with our style of play on the offensive line."

Bell, the seventh-round pick of the Buffalo Bills back in 2008, has started 30 games in his career but missed 10 of them last last season with a shoulder injury. And with the free agent market starting to dwindle down a bit, Arizona may have to use the draft as their top resource to improve the offensive line.
