New Orleans Saints: 3 reasons the team must re-sign safety Vonn Bell
Vonn Bell was a leader of one of the best defenses in the NFL last season and should be a priority re-sign for the New Orleans Saints.
New Orleans Saints’ safety Vonn Bell finished the season with 86 tackles, one interception, two forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, 1.5 sacks, and one touchdown on the year. Those stats make him one of the most sought after safeties on the free-agent market this offseason.
It is the same reason that the Saints need to spend the money necessary to re-sign a safety like this. Oe the NFL free agent tracker, there is only one safety listed higher than Bell on the market. That safety is Devin McCourty who currently makes over $8 million more than Bell.
On top of that, Bell has been one of the most dynamic safeties since 2017, ranking fifth among others at the same position in sacks plus quarterback hits plus tackles for a loss.
All signs point to Vonn Bell being the most valued safety on the market, unfortunately, that will make him highly sought after. It is of utmost importance that the Saints use some of that open cap space to re-sign the safety before other teams get to him.
Bell, who had been battling injuries this year, wasn’t even in full health pulling off the numbers he did. That is even more reason for the Saints to consider the possibility of the long-term future of Vonn Bell being a part of the Saints.
Here are three reasons the New Orleans Saints should re-sign safety Vonn Bell.
