Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed that the Bills controlled running back Le’Veon Bell, but Chiefs head coach Andy Reid did not do the same at his press conference on Thursday.
Bell was released from the Jets on Wednesday and a report on Thursday listed the Chiefs, Bills and Dolphins as the three teams vying to sign him. Reid said General Manager Brett Veach is responsible for personnel decisions and that he lets Reid know when there is something Reid needs to know.
“Veach does all of this,” Reid said, via the Associated Press. “I tell him, ‘If anything happens, let me know’, and that’s how we go.
