Don't expect Le'Veon Bell to re-up with the Kansas City Chiefs to play for Andy Reid this season. Bell remains an NFL free agent ahead of his age-29 season out of Michigan State. While he was an All-Pro performer in the early part of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bell has not been the same player since holding out in 2018. His New York Jets tenure was an unmitigated disaster, and it looks as though his time with the Chiefs did not go all that much better for him in 2020.

Tight end Noah Gray has been impressing the right people since being selected in the fifth round of this year’s draft.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes sang the rookie’s praises early in the OTA period and said that Gray “knows how to get himself open even if it’s not exactly what the play is designed to do.” As the offseason program wound down, it was head coach Andy Reid’s turn to shine a light on what Gray has been doing since joining the roster.

“He’s a smart kid and he works hard,” Reid said, via USAToday.com. “You can see that. You can see that he’s a good route-runner. There’s more to that spot than just doing that, so we’ll see once he gets pads on, but he sure is willing to do whatever we’ve asked. And you get a sense that he’s quarterback-friendly so that always helps if you’re a receiver. If quarterbacks like throwing the ball to you, that’s a plus, and he’s presented himself that way so far.”

2021 Fantasy Football Coach & Coordinator Breakdowns: AFC West

  2021 Fantasy Football Coach & Coordinator Breakdowns: AFC West Senior analyst Michael Fabiano breaks down the fantasy history & potential of the AFC West's coaches & offensive coordinatorsThese days, there's no shortage of information to prepare for your fantasy drafts. Heck, there might even be too much info! Well, I'm going to add to the madness by looking at how offensive coordinators and head coaches have run their offenses and what it might mean for the 2021 season. After all, the coaches and OCs are the minds behind the chess game that is the National Football League. Some coaches like to run the football, thus producing a ton of fantasy points at the running back position.

Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill are the top two receiving targets in Kansas City, but things are fluid behind them heading into the 2021 season. There’s been talk of featuring running backs as receivers more often, but continued flashes from Gray should have him in the mix for some action as well.

Le'Veon Bell doesn't believe Chiefs HC Andy Reid wishes him well .
At this point, it's unclear why Bell has a problem with Reid. His continued shots toward the Chiefs boss won't help him earn a contract with another NFL team, and he could only be hurting his chances. Bell had a relatively minimal role with the Chiefs after being released by the New York Jets in October. He had just two carries in three playoff games after running for 254 yards on 63 carries in nine regular-season games. It's unclear if his limited playing time is part of the reason why he's so upset with Reid. Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
