Last month there were reports that Jets head coach Adam Gase either didn't want to sign Le'Veon Bell at all or didn't like the amount of money since-fired general manager Mike Maccagnan gave Bell.
Bell addressed those reports on Tuesday at Jets minicamp and wasn't putting a lot of stock into them.
"Obviously we talk. Me and coach Gase talk all the time," Bell said. "When the report came out, I don't know where the report came from. But business is business. So even if the report was true, obviously he don't feel like I'm not a great player. Maybe he just feel like we could've gotten more great players, I don't know. But what I'm saying is, me and him, our relationship is great."
Bell says he and Gase talk "literally every day" and have done so while Bell was training in Florida.
"I sent him my workouts. I let him know, 'When I run this seam route, this is what I want to do on it.' He's giving me info back," Bell said. "The reports is the reports. There've been a lot of false reports about me. So I don't really buy into reports. I talk to him, he tells me what's going on."
The Jets signed Bell to a four-year, $52.5 million contract after he sat out the entire 2018 season.
Bell was also asked why things went south with the Steelers.
"We didn't come to an agreement on a contract," Bell said. "Long story short, we didn't come to an agreement on a contract. I wasn't happy, they wasn't happy, so part ways."
