Tatum Bell is apparently generating interest in a team other than Detroit following being traded to the Lions. PFT has posted a rumor stating that the Giants may be looking at a way to get Bell themselves.
As we mentioned on Thursday, the Lions could end up trading Bell and/or tackle George Foster, both of whom were obtained from the Broncos in the Dre' Bly trade.
At the same time, running back T.J. Duckett is expected to visit Detroit today and might end up getting signed. Tom Kowalski reports that Duckett being signed wouldn't be to replace Bell or Kevin Jones.
The Lions love Bell's speed and believe he's the ideal guy to not only serve as insurance for Kevin Jones, but to play alongside him when he's healthy. Bell can't run with any power between the tackles and Jones, while he can be a punishing runner in space, isn't really a short-yardage guy. Also, Jones is expected to return a little lighter than he was before his injury.
Free agency is just getting started, so make sure to check back with POD if any signings happen.
