Default Bell Back

Texans | Bell Re-signed - from www.KFFL.com
Wed, 5 May 2004 01:57:21 -0700

The Houston Texans have re-signed restricted free agent CB Jason Bell to a one-year, $455,000 deal.

No surprise here after the RFA deadline past, but now it is official.

Jason Bell is one of my favorite players on the Texans. True, he needs some help in his cover skills, which I think will improve this season, but I love his attitude towards playing special teams. It is almost as if he wants to make the Pro Bowl as a special teamer. The guy will hit you, and he hustles on all kickoff and punt returns. This was a great signing of a role player.

How many times did he stop the punt returner for no gain in the first two years. I remember several times when he hustled down the field to make a big play.

He also downed alot of punts inside the 10 alot. You know now that I think of it. If Peek has to play special teams this year, our special teams can really be pretty good too. Bell and Peek at the beginning of last season were really starting to come together until Peek broke the lineup and really didn't play much ST after that.

Signing a contract and making the team are two different things!

I think Bell is a GREAT gunner, but as they improve the depth of their secondary it will be harder and harder to keep him on the roster. At some point they may have to give his roster spot to a developmental defensive back, like Ramon Walker, or DeMarcus Faggins, or Glen Earl, or Jamaal Lord, who hopefully will also be pretty good on special teams.

Also, they have Derrick Vaughn to consider. He played well as a gunner. Is he a better back-up in the secondary?

As the Texans imrpove their depth, it will be more and more interesting to see how the Texans manage the bottom of their roster.

I believe the practice squad limit increased 5 to 8 players, so that will give us some room the develop the younger players this year.
