A number of Jets players shared their thoughts with the media on Tuesday’s release of running back Le’Veon Bell.
Here is a sample of what they said.
Jets QB Sam Darnold on RB Le’Veon Bell being cut: “I love Le’Veon. I loved having him around. I wish him nothing but the best. He’s a good player. Obviously we’re going to miss him. It definitely hurts us in some ways, but in other ways … again, he’s a really good player.”— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) October 14, 2020

“Since I've been here, Le'Veon's been a really hard worker. Good teammate. So, I think there's always a little bit of a level of surprise."#TakeFlight
Breshad Perriman on Bell being cut: "I was kind of shocked. I never anticipated or thought anything like that was coming. Le’Veon’s a great teammate. Wherever he lands, I hope he balls out."— Al Iannazzone (@Al_Iannazzone) October 14, 2020
Herndon on Bell’s release: “That was a surprise to all of us. At the end of the day he was a great teammate while he was here ... he was definitely a hard-working person. So I’m sure, just like everybody else, we’re all wishing him the best wherever he ends up.” #Jets— Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) October 14, 2020
