Le’Veon Bell apparently really hates Chiefs coach Andy Reid
Le’Veon Bell signed with the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6 last season after getting released by the New York Jets earlier in the year. However, Bell didn’t play much with the Chiefs and didn’t play at all in the ugly Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Because of this, Bell apparently isn’t much of a fan of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.
In an Instagram comment, Bell said he would retire before playing for Reid again, per PFT’s Michael David Smith. Hilariously enough, Bell’s comment came on an Instagram post about somebody spending over $700 at McDonald’s.
In nine regular-season games with Kansas City, Bell had 63 carries for 254 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught 13 passes for 99 yards. In the playoffs, he appeared in just one game and had two carries for six yards.
This lack of playing time is not what Bell had in mind when he signed with the mighty Chiefs. He probably figured he would play a key role on one of the best teams in the NFL, but he was mostly an afterthought.
The 29-year-old Bell is still looking for his next team, but it’s unclear if he’s going to get that opportunity. It has been quite the fall from grace for Bell after he quickly became one of the best running backs in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was an All-Pro in 2017 and then missed the 2018 season over his contract dispute, and it has basically been all downhill from there.
