The Arizona Cardinals would like veteran safety Yeremiah Bell to return to the team last season, which is why the Cardinals have offered Bell a one-year contract.
Bell, however, likely is not going to agree to a deal with the Cardinals and will instead announce his retirement, according to Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Bell walked on for the Eastern Kentucky Colonels after working at a steel mill and was originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins with the 213th overall pick of the sixth round of the 2003 NFL Draft.
Bell was placed on the practice squad. In 2004, made the roster and quickly earned playing time, appearing in 13 games. A year later, he earned a greater role and quickly became a full time player, even making the Pro Bowl in 2009. He signed with the New York Jets in 2012 and after a year there, he signed with the Cardinals.
Last season, he had 77 tackles and two interceptions.
