Byron Bell, the team’s starter at right tackle the past three seasons, signed his restricted free agent tender Monday. Bell has signed his tender, guaranteeing him $2.187 million for the 2014 season. Bell started at right tackle for the Panthers for most of last season and turned in an inconsistent body of work. Panthers tackle Bryron Bell was in that predicament and chose the first option. He waited nearly two months before signing it, presumably while he waited to see if any other teams were interested.
