Le’Veon Bell apparently did not like his time with Chiefs in Kansas City

The 29-year-old running back made a comment on Instagram on Saturday.

Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Le’Veon Bell created somewhat of a stir Saturday thanks to a reply he made on Instagram. Commenting in response to a fan on a post about an expensive McDonald’s tab (of all things), Bell expressed displeasure with his Chiefs tenure — and more specifically, playing for head coach Andy Reid.

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

Bell, 29, appeared in nine games for the Chiefs in 2020, carrying the ball 63 times for 254 yards and two touchdowns and also recorded 13 catches for 99 yards. He had two touches during the postseason.

The last time Bell was highly active on Twitter was May 27, when he posted a series of tweets expressing displeasure with the Chiefs and really, the NFL in general.

Bell said back in February that he had been happy with the Chiefs and how the season went, but he has since changed his tune as a free agent. Bell accumulated nearly 8,000 scrimmage yards and 42 total touchdowns with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2013-17 before sitting out the 2018 season.

He has not been the same back since, later signing with the New York Jets, and then the Chiefs in a reserve role.
