Theyíre the head of Bad Boy Football. Canít nobody hold them down. They love giving nasty boys one more chance. They believe in mo players no problems. Reid and Veach are close like Starsky and Hutch and the KC offense hypnotizes me.

Why am I quoting BIG and Puff and analogizing them to the leaders of the defending Super Bowl champions?

Thursday, the Chiefs signed bad boy running back LeíVeon Bell to a one-year contract, and it makes me nervous.

You see, Bell, to me, isnít bad meaning good, heís bad meaning bad. Heís a locker-room cancer. Heís poison. In pursuit of cash, he bulldozed his way out of an ideal situation in Pittsburgh, where on the field he meshed perfectly with Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. Bell landed in New York, where he flamed out with the Jets after playing in just 19 games. Owing him an additional $6 million, the Jets cut Bell on Tuesday rather than deal with his bad attitude.

In football, you canít have a problem with bad boys. The game is best played by them. But you have to pick the right bad boys, the ones who absolutely love the game. Thatís my gripe with LeíVeon. I donít think he loves the game. He loves the financial windfall the game provides him because heís good at it.

Letís take Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. He can be classified as a bad boy. Heís had some serious off-the-field issues. You know what motivates him to evolve and do better? His love of the game.

Remember when Andy Reid, as head coach of the Eagles, rescued Michael Vick from a federal prison and turned him back into a playmaker? It worked because Mike Vick loves football. Thatís also the reason Vick turned into a tremendous leader in the Philly locker room.

Bad boys can turn good. One of my all-time favorite people and players is Ravens legend Ray Lewis. Early in his career, Ray was involved in a murder investigation. He pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstructing justice. Ray loved the game and God. He wanted to be regarded as one of the all-time, all-time greats. He leaned into his faith and became arguably the greatest leader in NFL history. Heís right there with Tom Brady in terms of leadership.

I donít have a problem with bad boys. In some respects, I was one myself years ago.

My problem is with unrepentant bad boys. This is why Iím skeptical of my Chiefs tying any part of their success to LeíVeon Bell.

Bell is the kind of running back Suge Knight and Death Row Records would sign. Bell is Tupac Shakur. Dear mama, heís thug4life. He has ambitions as a ridah. Heís all eyez on me. Bell ainít got no muddafreakin friends. Grab your Glock when you see Bell rock. Heís hit Ďem up.

For non-Tupac fans, let me translate what I just said. Bell is going to bring dysfunction to the Chiefs. Heís troublesome. Heís going to make Andy Reid and Brett Veach sing Hail Mary.

I hope Iím wrong. Maybe Bell will be so embarrassed by his New York flameout and so highly motivated to make Adam Gase picture him rolling that heíll be on his best behavior for the remainder of this season.

Clear enough for ya?

Why you Jets look mad?

Yíall supposed to be happy Iím free!

Oh, I forgot. Adam Gase.

That coach had a lot to say when I was in his offense.

My gut says this ends with Andy Reid and LeíVeon Bell riding down the Las Vegas Strip and Reid pretending he had nothing to do with end of LeíVeonís career.

Exactly. He's a RB. One year deals offer no security at all. Nobody likes the franchise tag. Positions like RB, it can be a death blow.

And I doubt many teams, much less contenders, were wanting to pay him at the time. Even if he could help a contender, at what cost over the contract.... and that's how players end up on the Jets.

And that's precisely why this is a great move by the Chiefs.

Do you know Witlock?

I know him from Ball State, where in Jason's mind, he will have a building next to Letterman's.



He was full of shit then. is today.

Quite funny considering where he was today.

We have the strongest locker room in the NFL. If Bell chooses to become a pariah then he will be treated as such. We'll send him straight to the leper colony.

Considering Le'Veon literally talked with Helaire about not stepping on his toes, the idea he's going to be an issue is laughable at best.

I'm still trying to figure out Whitlock's angle here. He has to know how stupid his take is, even if a few actually believe it. Going in, he had zero credibility and this certainly doesn't help that.

I don't get it.

We live in a country where self-serving twats cater to a segment of society who feel they have a legitimate grievance because they are merely being asked to be decent human beings capable of respect and empathy for others.

Whitlock is a self-serving twat.

I would give you my view but it borders on a DC style view so I probably shouldn't.

I don't disagree with anything you said. I think it goes further, dude is working with Clay Travis. They are pushing sports coverage for a very particular dynamic of people...that dynamic usually has issues with outspoken athletes..

So here's this article.

You may not agree, but Whitlock is a self-serving twat. Everything he does is for attention. He would sell his soul if it would promote his career.

Pretty much, he's also burned about all his bridges in the sports world.
