Former Kansas City Chiefs RB Le’Veon Bell is at it again.

Just a few weeks after taking some direct shots at the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets, Bell now has his sights aimed at the Chiefs. Specifically, Bell has taken issue with Chiefs HC Andy Reid. In a response to an Instagram post about an expensive McDonald’s tab, Bell went in on Reid.

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

The Chiefs signed Bell in October of 2020, following his release from the Jets. He spent most of the season splitting opportunities with Clyde Edwards-Helaire but was rarely effective in the Kansas City offense. He’d appear in 10 games for Kansas City including the playoffs, recording 63 carries for 264 yards and two touchdowns. He was a non-factor during the playoffs and Super Bowl LV, with Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams handling most of the running back duties throughout.

Reid has the reputation of being one of the most beloved coaches in the league, not just by his players but also by his peers. Bell, on the other hand, has left a wake of toxicity everywhere he has been. It shouldn’t come as a big surprise to see Bell turn on the latest coach to give him a chance.

In the long run, it might not serve Bell’s best interests to bad-talk Reid. His coaching tree is vast and opportunities for the 2021 NFL season might be difficult for the free-agent running back to come by.
