Chiefs Safety Tyrann Mathieu Fires Back At RB Le'Veon Bell Over Andy Reid Comments

A member of the AFC Champion Kansas City Chiefs is speaking out after running back Le'Veon Bell recently made comments about Coach Andy Reid and playing for the organization.

Safety Tyrann Mathieu is firing back after Bell came out and said that he would "never play for Andy Reid again," that he'd "retire first.”

Mathieu didn't take too kindly to Bell's comments, as Reid is one of the most popular coaches in the league.

The Chiefs safety came back at Bell on Twitter.

“These fellas will blame everybody for their lack of success,” Mathieu said. “That’s how I know I’m built different.”

With an opportunity to turn his career around, Bell rushed for just 254 yards and a pair of scores in nine games for Kansas City.

Bell came to the Chiefs a few weeks into the 2020 season after an unsuccessful year and few games playing for the New York Jets. Bell's time in New York was a bust. In 17 games, he rushed for 863 yards with three touchdowns, not the numbers he was expected to put up after leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers via free agency.

The running back has already said that he is looking to return to form in 2021, but as of now, he doesn't have a team that is willing to take a chance on him.
