Former Chiefs RB Le’Veon Bell cleared the air about recent comments he said about Chiefs HC Andy Reid. Bell didn’t specify exactly what was said to him by Reid, but he did go on to state that he otherwise enjoyed his time in K.C.
“I said what I said & I don’t regret at all what I said,” Bell wrote on Twitter. “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.”
“Never did I say I didn’t enjoy my time in KC, because I loved my time there, and was probably the closest locker room full of players I ever been around. I enjoyed my teammates, the city, food, the fans, just about everything in KC.”
Bell went on to later state that he wishes he hadn’t made his initial comments the way that he did via social media.
“I’m not about to get all into depth on why I feel the way I do, but I have my right to feel the way I feel,” Bell wrote. “The ONLY thing I would change is commenting how i really felt on social media. I’ll admit that’s somethin I could’ve and should’ve kept to myself & I apologize about that and that only. but I don’t regret what I said, because that’s how I feel. so you can love me or hate me, I’m gonna be fine regardless. I’m just giving you a small version from my point of view on why I said what I said.”
“If you get too emotionally involved in those guys, and then it doesn’t happen, now you got Lock over here looking like … what about now?” Miller said, via Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “So you don’t want to get too emotionally attached to the rumors.”
“You start thinking, ‘Oh, we’re going to get Aaron Rodgers or Deshaun Watson,” Miller said. “But hold on, wait a minute, we’ve got Drew Lock. That’s who we’re running with. That’s who we’re going into the season with until anything changes.”
Chargers DB Coach Derrick Ansley has some familiarity with the personnel in the team’s secondary, which has made the transition to his new role seamless.
“It’s been an easy transition,” Ansley said, via ChargersWire. “Going back to when Derwin was a recruit coming out of Haines City, Fla. then going to Florida St., I had a chance to recruit him when I was at Alabama. Having Nas at the Senior Bowl, knowing Facyson from high school.”
“Just knowing all these guys, even Asante (Samuel Jr.) recruiting him out of St. Thomas, it just made transition a lot smoother. Not coming in here being the guy who doesn’t really know anybody. We kind of all knew of each other and that kind of helped us gel quickly.”
