Le'Veon Bell continues to blame everyone other than himself on social media, as the former All-Pro running back is still unsigned as a free agent in June. A few weeks ago, Bell had a Twitter rant where he tweeted that the "Steelers should've paid him what he wanted when they had the chance" and ripped former Jets coach Adam Gase with a series of tweets.
And now Andy Reid is the latest to get thrown under the bus by Bell.
Yesterday, Pro Football Talk revealed that Bell posted on Instagram, “I’ll never play for Andy Reid again. I’d retire first."
Bell's shot at Reid is a terrible look, as it just makes him look really petty and immature. People on Twitter instantly came in defense of Reid and called Bell out for constantly making excuses and blaming others for his downfall.
Damon Amendoloara of CBS Sports Radio summed it up best on Bell in the tweet below.
Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports also summarized just how bad Bell has been since 2017, which was the last time he rushed over 1,000 yards.
Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu also came in defense of his head coach and took a shot at Bell on Twitter by tweeting, "These fellas will blame everybody for their lack of success. That’s how I know I’m built different."
After his fallout with the Steelers, Bell cashed in on a four-year, $52 million deal with the Jets in March of 2019. Bell wouldn't last long with the Jets, however, as he really never saw eye to eye with head coach Adam Gase and was released by the team on Oct. 13, 2020, after the Jets couldn't find a trade partner. Four days later, Bell signed a one-year contract with the Chiefs.
Bell, 29, wasn't very productive with the Chiefs either and was the team's third-string running back by the end of the season. In nine regular-season games with Kansas City, Bell rushed for 254 yards on 63 carries (4.0 average) and two touchdowns. In addition, he had 13 receptions for 99 yards. In the divisional-round game against the Browns, Bell rushed for just six yards on two attempts.
Bell should probably look in the mirror and not blame a future Hall of Fame coach for his career falling apart.
Update: Bell posted a series of tweets tonight addressing his comments on Reid and his time in Kansas City.
