    Alexander hit it...

    Bell is here to help tighten-up the 2nd string offensive line in order that the 2nd string skill players get some opportunity to show something.

    In previous campaigns the 2nd string line was so bad that little or nothing was shown by the skill players on offense.

    This training camp the 2nd stringers will probably be:

    Bell
    Parnell
    Leary
    Arkin
    Costa

    No, you may not want ANY of those guys starting for you at 1st string, but for 2nd string? It's not bad.

    This.

    Bell isn't as good as Free or Parnell.

    He's here to help tighten-up the 2nd string offensive line.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Parnell got time on two units. He needs snaps to get better. For example, he might run with the 2's and the 3's at RT. Or, if he is winning the RT battle he might go for the 1s and 2s while Free takes snaps at LT (we might see this anyway in the last pre-season game as we likely sit Tyron).

    Not sure he's camp fodder. Time will tell.

    Romo better watch out, this guy might beat him out for the starting job.

    Man! What are the odds that Dallas would find two pro bowl QB's both as undrafted free agents within 10 years of each other? (Romo and Tanney)

    Now they don't have to worry about finding Romo's heir apparent.

    Alexander What's it going to be then, eh?

    So if the Eagles signed Doug Free, would you be laughing?

    Don't know anything else about Tanney...but that video and his accuracy is impressive for sure. Definitely worth a look IMO

    He was playing pretty well his last couple of years in Buffalo and then just completely fell off with Philadelphia. He gave up 5.25 sacks and committed five penalties in 2010 in 16 starts and then in six starts in 2011 (before being sidelined by injury), he committed no penalties and gave up a half-sack.

    Penalties, which were a problem for him his first year as a starter (8 in 8 starts/games), became a big problem for him again in 2012 (9 in 5 starts/9 games) when he went to Philadelphia and he gave up 3 sacks. It's a good possibility like others have pointed out that the technique changes were too much for him.

    We'll see. It's not a bad pickup for a trial basis.

    I also like the Tanney pickup.

    I'd love it if they added another guard with the 1 spot they have left, like Brandon Moore

    It won't be Moore. They think he's done.

    Wasn't Tanney on the show super humans? He made some pretty impressive throws on that show as well.

    They shouldn't, based on how he played last year.

    Why anyone would complain about the move for OT is beyond me, nothing left in FAgency.
