Biography

The Dallas Cowboys signed offensive lineman Byron Bell during the 2017 offseason to add competition and experience to the offensive front. The seventh-year veteran was originally signed as a rookie free agent by the Carolina Panthers following the 2011 NFL Draft and not only made the team, but appeared in all 16 games with 12 starts at right tackle as a rookie. He played in 62 games for the Panthers over four years before signing with Tennessee in 2015. He started all 16 games for the Titans in 2015, playing both tackle positions and at left guard, but missed the entire 2016 season after suffering an ankle injury in spring OTAs. The 6-foot-5-inch, 340-pounder is a seasoned starter that has the ability to play both tackle spots and also swing inside to line up at guard.
