Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell still remains unsigned, but that is not stopping him from sharing his frustration with his former boss.
In a since deleted Instagram comment, Bell said that he would rather retire from football than play for Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid again.
Bell shared a similar sentiment on Twitter earlier this month, criticizing both Reid and former New York Jets head coach Adam Gase for not featuring him more in their respective offenses.
lol the only difference with the steelers was they gave me opportunity… haven’t had that since I left, I probably need to play for a defensive minded head coach instead of these offensive minded guru’s … https://t.co/JAT50XUm23— Le'Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) May 27, 2021
Bell played nine games for the Chiefs in 2020 after being released by the Jets, but saw limited opportunities en route to Kansas City’s Super Bowl LV appearance.
He carried the ball just 63 times for 254 yards and two touchdowns, and only caught 13 passes for 99 yards.
Bell is fourth in Pittsburgh franchise history with 5,335 rushing yards and 35 rushing touchdowns. He was an accomplished receiver as well, catching 312 passes for 2,660 yards and seven touchdowns as a Steeler, with the receptions and yards the most by a running back in team history.
Bell was selected to three Pro Bowls and earned two First-Team All-Pro nods while in Pittsburgh.
