Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu isn’t here for Le’Veon Bell’s criticism of his head coach.
In an Instagranm comment, Bell wrote that he would “never play for Andy Reid again, and “I’ll retire first.”
Tyrann Mathieu fired back at him.
“These fellas will blame everybody for their lack of success,” Mathieu said on Twitter. “That’s how I know I’m built different.”

Bell took to Twitter on Sunday to apologize for his comment, but he said he has no regrets about his feelings and cited a “personal problem” with Reid:
I said what I said & I don’t regret at all what I said…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

Bell signed with the Chiefs midway through the 2020 season after he was released by the Jets less than two years into a four-year, $52.5 million contract. As the No. 2 RB, he managed only 254 rushing yards and 99 receiving yards in nine games.
