Former NY Jets’ safety Jamal Adams continue to exchange words with former teammate Le’Veon Bell.
But the ever-boisterous Adams made sure that he didn’t go quietly and without controversy.
Soon after the trade was announced, Jets’ running back Le’Veon Bell took to Twitter to express his anger about the entire situation with Adams. The former All-Pro running back called out Adams seemingly questioning his integrity.
Bell seemed upset that Adams had done his best to recruit Bell to join the Jets, but just one year later, he was doing everything in his power to remove himself from the situation.
Evidently, Bell felt personally spurred. Below is the full tweet that he sent out minutes after the Adams trade became official.
ppl do all the hootin & hollerin to get you brought in, just to leave…lol like people weird yooo, the internet got these dudes doin whatever for attention, even when they tell you sh*t they don’t believe themselves

Adams would quickly respond to this apparent shot at him with a simple “Noted. See [you] Week 14!”
As expected, Bell didn’t take too kindly to those words and he chose to respond as well. And believe me, this is far from the end of this heated social media squabble.
Bell asked Adams if he was supposed to take his words “as a threat” and iterated that Adams had “lied” to him. To his credit, he did take the high road by insisting that he wants “the best for [Adams].”
This would be the last direct interaction between the two, but the ordeal certainly wasn’t over.
Adams would go on to tweet out a gif seemingly mocking Bell as seen below.

That’s certainly one way to leave an organization. Any bridges that were left standing have seemingly been burnt to a crisp as Adams left no stone unturned upon his departure.
This issue was between Adams and Bell, but that didn’t stop current and former teammates of the duo from weighing in on the issue.
Former NY Jets players and others commented on the issue between Jamal Adams and Le’Veon Bell as well.
Former Jets’ cornerback Darryl Roberts took to Twitter to seemingly mock Bell as well. It’s worth noting that Adams retweeted this tweet and the timing of it makes it pretty clear what it was about.

Current Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Vince Williams — a former teammate of Bell — also shared his thoughts on the issue. While he didn’t necessarily take a side, he seemed to insist that Bell was being a little naive.

Who knows if this Twitter war has reached its conclusion. For the sake of everyone involved, it’s probably best to just move on at this point and focus on the start of training camp in just a couple of days.
Adams got his wish and Bell remains focused on making 2020 the best year of his career. Let’s just move past this and forget it ever happened.
That is, until Week 14, of course.
