Former New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell is at it again, this time claiming he’d retire before playing for Andy Reid again.

Somebody take social media away from Le’Veon Bell; he just can’t help himself.

A little over two weeks after telling the Twitter world defenses knew the New York Jets offensive plays during the Adam Gase era, Bell hopped on Instagram Saturday with his sights set on a Super Bowl-winning head coach.

The former Jet claims he’d retire before playing for Andy Reid again.

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

Bell, 29, remains without a team as the NFL schedule hits mid-June. After disappointing in a year and change with the Jets—courtesy of a Mike Maccagnan mega-contract during the 2019 offseason—Bell underwhelmed in Kansas City as well.

Bell initially chose the Chiefs in Week 6 last year because he wanted to win a Super Bowl. Although he and Reid made it to Super Bowl 55, it appears he didn’t enjoy himself.

Playing second fiddle to rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Bell rushed for just 254 yards and two touchdowns on 63 carries (4.0 yards per carry). Only the rabid and subjective Bell fan wouldn’t admit that the man has clearly lost a step or two.

Interestingly, Bell’s comment happened on an Instagram post about somebody spending $700 at McDonald’s.

Bell wishes to play in the NFL this coming season. He’s made it clear that he’s not ready to retire. Which team (if any) takes a chance on the aging hip-hop running back?

The odds are slim the Chiefs (or Jets) ever jump back into the Le’Veon Bell pool.
