If Le’Veon Bell and Jamal Adams were friends before, that relationship may be over now.
Moments after The Post’s Brian Costello first reported the Jets had dealt the disgruntled All-Pro safety to the Seahawks on Saturday, Bell ripped Adams on Twitter, pointing out that Adams campaigned for Bell to come to sign with the Jets, only to leave himself after Bell’s first season with Gang Green.
“ppl do all the hootin & hollerin to get you brought in, just to leave.” Bell tweeted. “lol like people weird yooo, the internet got these dudes doin whatever for attention, even when they tell you s–t they don’t believe themselves.”
When it was suggested Bell was mad, he responded: “I’m not mad, i’m motivated.”
The Jets dealt Adams and a 2022 fourth-round pick in exchange for safety Bradley McDougald, a 2021 first-round pick, 2021 third-round pick and 2022 first-round pick.
Adams had openly campaigned to get moved after not getting the contract extension he desired, ripping coach Adam Gase and general manager Joe Douglas, similar to what Bell did with the Steelers before sitting out the entire 2018 season and then signing with the Jets.
Bell and Adams had talked about Adams’ unhappiness, but Bell believed he wanted to stay with the Jets as recently as early July.
“I think he wants to be [with the Jets]. I just think he wants to get paid,” Bell said on Hot 97 radio. “I think he’s in the same situation I was three years ago. He’s a young player. He’s been at the top of the game, playing at a high level and feels like, ‘Dang, I just want to get compensated.’ ”
Adams may get the money he wants, but it won’t be with the Jets, and Bell isn’t happy about it.
