Le’Veon Bell always seems to figure out a way of staying in the news. After his controversial exit from the Pittsburgh Steelers, the running back once again made headline by being cut from the New York Jets roster mid-way through the 2020 season.

One team though was willing to take a chance on Bell. And that team was the Kansas City Chiefs. Head Coach Andy Reid brought in the Bell to add depth to the Chiefs running game. 

While rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire had an impressive campaign in 2020, an injury saw him miss out on the closing stages of the regular season.

Bell then took over to lead the Chiefs’ running game. But his performances were far from convincing to earn him a contract extension. Now a free agent, the running back recently said on social media that he would retire than play for Reid ever again. 

This comment of his obviously did not go down well in the NFL community. Reid is a respected figure among fans and players alike, and Bell received a lot of rebuke for his words.

The running back has since then took to Twitter to clarify his comments. But if Reid was looking for an apology, it looks like it’s not something he’s going to get.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, Bell explained that his beef is with Reid and not the franchise or its fans. And as for apologizing for his comments, that isn’t happening.

“I said what I said & I don’t regret at all what I said,” Bell tweeted“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.”

While Bell did not mention what exactly Reid had said that made him go on a rant, he clarified that he thoroughly enjoyed his spell at Kansas.

“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,” Bell wrote. “I enjoyed my teammates, the city, food, the fans, just about everything in KC.”
