“I really enjoyed my time with him here,” Reid said Thursday as the Chiefs wrapped up their off-season training. “I liked the way he handled things and did his business. He had productive problems for us. But I shoot for him in the future. This is how I ride. People say things. They say things. him the best. “
Bell, who joined the Chiefs last season but has played little, recently wrote on Instagram that he would be retiring before playing for Reid again. He then explained on his Twitter account that his feelings stemmed from a comment Reid made to him, although he did not elaborate.
Bell’s contract expired at the end of last season and he has yet to sign with another team.
Bell, 29, has appeared in nine games with the Chiefs, starting two, and has rushed for 254 yards and two touchdowns on 63 carries. His role waned towards the end of the campaign and he did not appear in the AFC Championship game or Super Bowl LV.
Three-time Pro Bowler, Bell started last season with the New York Jets. He appeared in just two games with New York, with 19 carries for 74 yards.
