Interest in Bell, Baskett?

A couple links before we call it a night.

A source tells Adam Caplan of Scout.com that the Eagles are among the teams that have shown interest in free-agent running back Mike Bell.

Bell ran for 654 yards last season with the Saints, averaging 3.8 yards per carry and getting in the end zone five times. He wasn't a factor in the passing game, catching just four balls in 2009.

During his four-year career (two with the Broncos, two with the Saints), Bell's averaged 4.0 yards per carry. Not a lot of wear and tear with 348 carries. Bell has appeared in just 37 total games. He'll turn 27 in April and is younger than many of the other running backs on the market.

And the next one you're sure to get a kick out of. A source tells Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post that the Eagles are one of three teams to have interest in Hank Baskett. Baskett spent three-plus seasons with the Birds from 2006-2009.

He spent most of '09 with the Colts, but didn't have a role offensively, catching four balls for 28 yards. Baskett was unable to come up with the onsides kick at the start of the second half in the Super Bowl.
