Le’Veon Bell is not backing down from what he said about never wanting to play for Andy Reid again.
“I’ll never play for Andy Reid again,” Bell wrote. “I’d retire first.”
After being blasted by social media for what he said, he took to Twitter on Sunday and expanded on his comments.
“I said what I said & I don’t regret at all what I said…for those who have a PERSONAL PROBLEM with me because of what I SAID, that’s fine…you have your right! just understand I ALSO have MY RIGHT for how I feel about MY PERSONAL problem with dude because of what HE SAID to me”
“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…”
“I’m not about to get all into depth on why I feel the way I do, but I have my right to feel the way I feel…the ONLY thing I would change is commenting how i really felt on social media…”
“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…”
“so you can love me or hate me, I’m gonna be fine regardless … I’m just giving you a small version from my point of view on why I said what I said …”
The New York Jets released Bell five weeks into the 2020 NFL season, and that’s when he decided to sign a one-year deal with the Chiefs. In nine regular-season games with Kansas City, Bell averaged 4.0 yards per carry and only had 254 rushing yards with two touchdowns.
He only appeared in one playoff game for the team and had only six yards rushing.
Ever since leaving the Steelers, Bell has not been able to put his career back on track. New York made Bell one of the highest-paid running backs in March 2019 with a four-year, $52.5 million deal.
In 17 games with the Jets, Bell had 863 yards and three rushing scores. He also had 69 receptions for 500 yards and one touchdown.
