Le’Veon Bell: ‘I’ll never play for Andy Reid again’

Running back Le’Veon Bell apparently wasn’t much of a fan of coach Andy Reid during his brief stint with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Bell, now a free agent, shared his feelings in a response to a comment on Instagram.

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

Bell did not go into greater detail on Reid, his coach since joining the team on Oct. 17 — three days after his release from the New York Jets.

The 29-year-old Bell rushed for 254 yards and two touchdowns in nine games with the Chiefs. He had two carries for six yards in the AFC divisional-round win over the Cleveland Browns before being inactive for the AFC Championship Game vs. the Buffalo Bills.

Bell did not play in Super Bowl LV against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bell was a three-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time All-Pro with the Pittsburgh Steelers before sitting out the entire 2018 season on the franchise tag in a contract dispute.

After signing a four-year, $52.5 million deal with the Jets in March 2019, Bell gained 1,250 yards from scrimmage and scored four touchdowns in 15 starts with the team that season.

Bell has rushed for 6,453 yards and 40 touchdowns and caught 394 passes for 3,259 yards and eight scores in 88 games (81 starts) with the Steelers (2013-17), Jets (2019-20) and Chiefs (2020).
