Le'Veon Bell will 'never play for Andy Reid again: I'd retire first'
Le'Veon Bell earned a trip to the Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs.
But his brief stint on Andy Reid's offense didn't suit him.
The former all-pro running back spoke about his feelings for Reid in an Instagram comment on Friday. In short, he's had enough.
"I'll never play for Andy Reid again," wrote Bell. "I would retire first."
Why is Bell so mad at Reid?
Bell commented on an Instagram post about someone spending $ 700 on a McDonald's drive-thru. Because of course he did. Why is he so mad at a coach who is as popular as pretty much everyone in the NFL? He didn't explain. But his snap count could shed some light on the picture.
Bell signed with Kansas City last season following a mid-season New York Jets release. He played nine regular season games with the Chiefs, counting 254 yards and two touchdowns on the ground while averaging four yards per carry. He also scored 99 yards on 17 catches.
The then 28-year-old former all-pro didn't exactly realize he was playing in Kansas City's historically explosive offense. When breakout rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire returned from a hip injury to play in the AFC Championship, Bell was the odd man on the running back depth chart.

Bell remains without a contract in the middle of the off-season
After carrying the ball twice in Kansas City's AFC divisional win over the Cleveland Browns, Bell was scratched for the AFC title game, with the team arriving citing a knee swelling. He was active for the Super Bowl but didn't see a snap.
It's not hard to mark his Kansas City experience as a first-person blow to a player so confident in his skills that he had a prime season amid a contract battle with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
His return to the league with the Jets and Chiefs was a disappointment. And Bell remains a free agent as most of the teams have gone through OTAs and mini camps.
