With what has quickly become an infamous day in New York Jets chronicle turning to night, one of the franchise's newest additions weighed in Wednesday via social media.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day that reason for a divide between Gase and Maccagnan existed, in part, due to a disagreement on free-agent signings, notably linebacker C.J. Mosley and Bell. Gase was not on board with bringing on Bell or any back with a lofty contract (Bell signed a four-year, $52.5 million deal).
Shortly after, Bell followed with his second and final tweet on the subject.
Gase has downplayed Bell's absence, though he also downplayed any rift between him and Maccagnan.
However, Bell appears driven to succeed whether his coach is his biggest fan or not. At least that's what he's tweeting, anyway.
Perhaps the fun in New York is just getting going.
