“I’ll retire first” – –


Former All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell was not happy during his stint with the Chiefs last year.

Bell, now a 29-year-old free agent, wrote a comment on Instagram saying he had no interest in returning to Kansas City and playing for head coach Andy Reid.

“I’ll never play for Andy Reid again,” Bell wrote. “I would retire first. “

The New York Jets released Bell five weeks after the start of the 2020 NFL season, and that’s when he decided to sign a one-year contract with the Chiefs. In nine regular-season games with Kansas City, Bell averaged 4.0 yards per carry and had just 254 rushing yards with two touchdowns.

Bell, who played a playoff game for the Chiefs, had just six rushing yards.

Bell was once one of the best running backs in all of football, but since leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers he has become a shell of himself. The last time Bell had 1,000 or more rushing yards or 10 touchdowns in a season was in 2017.

In 17 games with the Jets, Bell had 863 yards and three rushing runs. He also had 69 receptions for 500 yards and a touchdown. New York made Bell one of the highest paid running backs in March 2019 with a four-year, $ 52.5 million contract.

The Chiefs drafted former LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire with their 2020 first-round pick, and they called on Bell to bring a veteran presence in the locker room and serve as a mentor to the younger ones, but this experiment didn’t seem to have worked.

Bell’s future in the NFL is certainly uncertain.
