Mike Bell tendered a low tender...

The Saints have extended a low tender to restricted free agent Mike Bell.

Though Bell was originally undrafted and would require no draft pick loss to sign away, teams are unlikely to be overly intrigued after his miserable finish to last year. He won't be guaranteed a spot on the Saints in 2010.

Saints Tender Mike Bell for 1 yr deal at lowest comp level

He may be gone IMHO. Someone will sign him away at that tender level. Another team would not have to give up a draft pick for him. San Diego anyone?

AT 26 YEARS OLD AND THE QUALITY OF FREEAGENTS AVAILABLE THIS YEAR BELL WILL REMAIN WITH THE SAINTS IN 2010. HIS ROLL WILL REMAIN THE SAME IF HE STAYS OR GOES. HE WILL NEVER BE A FEATURE BACK AS THEY CALL IT. HE'S JUST TO FAR ALONG IN HIS CAREER TO ESTABLISH HIMSELF AS THE MAN.

Good question Scott. Wish I had the answer but just when I think I have this uncapped year crap figured out, something like this pops up.

QBREES, HELP!!!

Re: Mike Bell tendered a low tender...

Seriously, I don't see Mike Bell coming back to the Saints, unless there is an injury situation at the position. He did play very well to start the season, but really did not hold up. I know he got injured and that was probably the cause of his decline. I really think Hamilton has pretty much earned the job of short yardage back.

I would like to see him back in the black and gold, but if someone else is willing to pay him well then good luck. Hamilton looked good in limited playing time, although so did Bell.
