Free-agent safety Yeremiah Bell has agreed to a one-year contract with the New York Jets, according to Pro Football Talk.

Bell, 34, has spent his eight-year career with the Miami Dolphins and missed only one game over the last four seasons. He was a salary-cap casualty in Miami and reportedly agreed to a $1.4-million deal in New York.

Bell joins Eric Smith and LaRon Landry, whom the team signed in March, in a crowd at safety. The Jets also drafted Josh Bush in the sixth round and Antonio Allen in the seventh.

Landry is recovering from Achilles surgery and, according to the Star-Ledger, has not been participating in the Jets’ voluntary offseason program or attending meetings. He often skipped voluntary workouts and meetings during his years with the Washington Redskins, opting to work out on his own.
