Le’Veon Bell decided to sit out the entire 2018-19 NFL season after a contract dispute with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, he is preparing for a fresh start in the Big Apple with the New York Jets.
However, while Bell has been preparing for his return, he has also been enjoying his interests off of the field. Bell enjoys his time in the studio and has previously released multiple mixtapes and he often shares footage on social media from his everyday life.
Because Bell is so open, he leaves himself open to criticism with people questioning his focus and preparation.
Well, Bell has seen enough of the criticism and recently took to social media to deliver a message to anyone who has been talking about his dedication.
“I’m tired of social media, I’m tired everybody telling me, ‘Oh, Le’Veon, you not focused. You only wanna make music. You wanna play basketball. You do everything besides play football,” Bell said in the rant. “You think [LeBron] is waking up, and he ain’t have no Taco Tuesdays? Bron don’t have Taco Tuesdays, you think he’s hoopin’ all day? You think Beyoncé is waking up singing all day? She don’t go to work, she don’t act?”
“Somebody work at Target, do you think when they work from 9-5, they go home and all they doing is worrying about putting f*cking sh*t on the shelves?! They trying to worry about what serial numbers coming up?! No!”
Bell will be returning to the field for the first time in over a year. We’ll have to see just how focused he was on improving during his time off. The Jets officially kickoff their 2019-20 campaign on September 8 against the division rival Buffalo Bills.
During his last full season of action, Bell rushed for 1,291 yards and 9 touchdowns. Throughout his six-year career in the league, Bell has racked up 5,336 yards and 35 touchdowns on the ground while adding 312 receptions for 2,660 yards and an additional 7 scores.
