NY Jets running back Le’Veon Bell was right about his criticisms of Jamal Adams.
With everything that occurred from Jamal Adams whining his way out of the building, to Le’Veon Bell preaching what every fan wanted to hear that Saturday afternoon, one thing has now become clear.
Adams was never the leader we thought he was. But, Bell is.
Ever since signing Bell as free-agent on March 13th, 2019, he has been nothing more than a grown-up when it comes to dealing with situations not fit for children.
I doubt Le’Veon Bell thought at this time a year ago that he would have to defend himself against a 24-year-old man who has been acting like a teenager on Twitter, but here we are.
On Saturday, Le’Veon Bell took to social media to address the Jamal Adams situation.
“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 s— they don’t believe themselves”
Bell was obviously upset that then-teammate Jamal Adams skipped out of town leaving Le’Veon in a pool full of confusion after Adams deliberately recruited him back in 2019.
Le’Veon Bell’s character has been everything NY Jets fans could’ve hoped for and more since signing.
Since signing with the Jets, Bell has been nothing but a model citizen after many said he would become a locker room distraction referring to his time in Pittsburgh.
It’s true, Le’Veon Bell and the Jets have battled through plenty of adversity so far during his tenure, but nothing describes a man more than the way he handles misfortune.
Bell wasn’t going to take whatever Adams was throwing his way. Le’Veon meant what he said speaking in an interview with Peter Rosenberg on Hot 97 radio three weeks ago.
“Me, personally, I hope he doesn’t get traded.”
Why would anyone want their best player traded?
Things changed when Adams attacked members of the Jets’ staff and front office, thrashing the head coach, general manager, and owner all in the same week.
Bell might not know it now, but he won over the hearts of many Jets fans who still had doubts about the running backs’ willingness to be in New York.
We’ll never know the words spoken over the phone between Bell and Adams, but something tells me a promise was broken.
That promise takes it’s talents to the Pacific Northwest.
