Dallas Cowboys reportedly set to sign Karl Malone’s son

malone-bellThe Dallas Cowboys reportedly will fill one of their four vacant roster spots with son of former NBA great Karl Malone, MySanAntonio reported.

Citing an anonymous source, ESPNDallas.com’s Todd Archer reports Dallas will sign former Philadelphia Eagle Demetress Bell to bolster depth along the offensive line, one of the club’s weakest areas.

Bell, who started five games last season for the Eagles, must pass a physical before signing. Philadelphia released him in February in a salary-cap move.

The 6-foot-5, 311-pound Bell is a sixth-year player from Northwestern State-La. He started 35 of the 40 games he’s played for Buffalo and Philadelphia after the Bills drafted him in the seventh round in 2008.

According to media reports, Bell and Malone do not have a relationship.

“I treat it as if my mother went to the sperm bank,” Bell told ESPN.com in 2008. “I don’t hate him for (not being in my life). It made me a better person.”

Archer also reported the Cowboys plan to sign quarterback Alex Tanney rather than former Alamo Heights and Rice standout Chase Clement and wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei.

The signings of Bell, Tanney and Tuinei would leave the club one player shy of the 90-man NFL training camp roster.
