Best Fits for Free Agent Safety Vonn Bell
Vonn Bell will be one of the premier free agents safeties on the market this year. The seven-year veteran has established himself as one of the better safeties in the league, with 4 interceptions for 56 yards, 8 pass deflections, and 77 combined tackles last season.
Returning to the Bengals makes sense for Bell. The Bengals are on the cusp of being a Super Bowl contender, and Bell knows the squad well. The Bengals have a high-powered offense led by Joe Burrow, but the defense was also a key factor in their success. The team defense finished fifth in the league, and Bell played a big role in that.
The Broncos would also be a great fit for Bell. With Kareem Jackson likely to be cut, there will be an opening alongside Justin Simmons, widely considered one of the top safeties in the NFL. A safety duo of Simmons and Bell would be one of the best in the league. The Broncos’ defense was a bright spot for them last year, so Bell would be coming to an already complete defensive unit.
Finally, the Packers would be a dark horse team for Bell. Despite uncertainty around Aaron Rodgers’ future, Bell would fit well with the Green Bay defense, especially with top-10 cornerback Jaire Alexander leading the secondary. While the Bengals and Broncos seem like more seamless fits, the Packers could surprise many and make a play for the talented safety.
