The Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday brought free agent Yeremiah Bell in for a visit. He has drawn interest from a number of teams including the Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets.

Bell's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told a South Florida radio station (WQAM) that Bell will sign with one of those four teams within 24 hours.

Classic agent move with this "24-hour" business. It's designed to push the four teams involved to increase their offer to secure Bell's services. Who knows if all four of those are legitimately interested because you rarely, if ever, see a four-team bidding war over a 34-year old safety...in May.

The concerns with Bell are there, he's 34 years old. As I said on 610 Sports on Wednesday, I think he makes sense for the Chiefs from a depth standpoint. This is the type of signing you make in May. Eric Berry is coming back from an ACL tear and Kendrick Lewis has been banged up throughout his career, so you can never be too sure. The Chiefs have also worked out free agent safety OJ Atogwe so we think we know that a veteran safety is a need.

Do you think the Chiefs sign him?
