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.

And I'm a big fan of the Countach. If I ever got an enormous windfall, that would be in my garage. It would have to be really enormous, though, given the maintenance costs.

Salma is on my mind because I watched a movie last night where she was one of the stars. Every time she came onscreen, I forgot what the movie was about.

This is exactly what I am thinking. Bell wasn't even at the facility to cause problems. He told the Steelers what he would do if he wasn't paid the contract he thought he deserved and then proceeded to do exactly what he said he was going to do.

He knew the risks of playing the position he plays and what an injury could mean to his next contract. He wasn't in the locker room being crazy or skipping the most important game of the year. AB was a cancer, not Bell. His plan may not have worked out exactly like he wanted and he went to the highest bidder which was the shitty Jets. He gets there and gets to hear how his HC doesn't even want him on the team. I'd be frustrated too if I were Bell. He was playing for a shit HC that didn't even want him and the team sucked worse than he thought it would.

I just don't see a big risk of a 1/2 season rental of a RB. The guy has everything to gain so he can do right or his career is over. And the Chiefs have no real investment to lose so we'll be fine.

I thought it was in interesting take on the situation and fairly entertaining way of putting it. Some of you need to pull the sticks out of your asses.

He didn't lose his mind he just said he has doubts and hopes he is wrong.

Lazy writing. Put more thought into how he could write about a bunch of rappers in a sports article then doing any research. What evidence exists that he's a locker room cancer? Everyone seemed to get along with him fine in Pittsburgh. They didn't get rid of him because he was a problem, they just didn't want to pay him what he thought he was worth. Even with the supposed rift between him and Gase (that Gase started as soon as he got there) never heard even a rumor about being a bad teammate or a cancer. Greedy or thinking he's worth more than he is? Sure.

The problem is that he's completely wrong.

Leveon Bell is walking into an established locker room with well-defined leaders. There's zero risk in this. It's impossible for him to be a disruption, they'll just lock him out and he'll disappear like Shady did last year down the stretch.

Dude there is always the possibility he could be a problem.

You do realize he just got cut by the JETS when its costing them a ton of $? I know they are a mess, I know they aren't KC but he obviously forced his way off a team paying him a shit ton of money.

So no its not "impossible" for Bell to be a distraction, though I also find it not likely as well.

So, how could he be a distraction in KC? If he was an issue at all, why wouldn't KC simply cut him immediately?

First, he didn't force his way off of the Jets. Adam Gase never wanted him. Gase finally just decided to give up the charade and cut him. Bell didn't really do anything at all. Gase is just an asshole.

Second, do you really think Mahomes, Kelce, Clark, Mathieu and this group is going to be affected at all if Bell decides to be distraction? There's no way he has any ability to affect the locker room, even if he decides to act like a complete dick.

I don't know man, how has any player ever been a distraction in the course of NFL history? All they have to do is cut them. :-)

Did you miss the part where I said it was highly unlikely?

I don't think you do.

Care to explain to us everything that happened since Bell signed with the Jets?

Frank Clark wanted $20 million per. The Seahawks couldn't afford to pay him so they traded him.

Has Clark been a lockerroom "cancer"?

You made the distinction that the Jets cut him and owed him a ton of money. The Chiefs could cut him tomorrow without a second thought.

I don't get the "distraction" angle at all. You're going to have to be more specific to this theoretical angle.
