According to Howard Balzer's twitter, Jacob Bell's current contract will expire and he will become a free agent this coming March.
Howard says that part of the deal for Bell agreeing to restructure his contract was if he had the right to become a free agent this coming March.
Bell has been a disappointment due to his sub-par run blocking the past couple of seasons. Bell is a good pass blocker and ranked as arguably the best on the Rams offensive line in this statistic last season.
Bell played a good game in Saturday's preseason game and showed some surprising ability to get push given his reputation.
Maybe the upcoming free agency period has lit a fire under Bell.
Whether or not we resign Bell this offseason will be one interesting story to watch after the season is over.
