Le’Veon Bell has heard the criticism surrounding him on why he isn’t present during the Jets’ voluntary offseason program.
On Monday night, the New York Jets running back issued a “Public Service Announcement” about his absence and it was quite delusional.
“When it’s time to play football,” Bell answered. “I got to stick to the formula that I know works for me to be the best player I can be. I’m not just tryna win football games, I want a ring! I want to desperately show everybody what I can . . . REALLY do. I’ll take the heat right now, everybody will forget about that once January comes around.”
I get that every player says outwardly that they want to win a ring with their current team, but the reality of the situation is that the Jets is not even close to being a contender.
This is a franchise that hasn’t qualified for the playoffs since 2010 and has had one winning record in the same time frame.
If he was truly serious about playing in January and trying for a win, he probably should’ve showed up for the Pittsburgh Steelers last season instead of throwing millions of dollars away.
