As expected, Andy Reid took the high road Thursday in response to recent comments made by running back Le’Veon Bell.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Kansas City Chiefs head coach said the following about coaching Bell last season: “I enjoyed my time with him. I’m pulling for him. That’s how I roll.”
Bell criticized Reid in an Instagram comment last week, writing: “I’ll never play for Andy Reid again…I’d retire first.” Given the odd disrespect for such a highly-regard head coach, the comments raised eyebrows.
He would soon take to Twitter to regret airing his thoughts on Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, but didn’t regret what he said.
“I’ll admit that’s somethin I could’ve and should’ve kept to myself & I apologize about that and that only… but I don’t regret what I said, because that’s how I feel…”
Bell, who played in nine games for the Chiefs in 2020, is currently a free agent.
“never did I say I didn’t enjoy my time in KC, because I loved my time there, and was probably the closest locker room full of players I ever been around…I enjoyed my teammates, the city, food, the fans, just about everything in KC…” Bell tweeted.
Bell carried the ball 63 times for 254 yards and two touchdowns, and caught 13 passes for 99 yards with the Chiefs.
