Le’Veon Bell: NFL ‘screwed’ over Sam Darnold with seeing ghosts clip
Many with the New York Jets are upset with ESPN and the NFL over the Sam Darnold mic’d up clip that aired during “Monday Night Football.”
ESPN aired a clip during the Jets’ shutout loss to the New England Patriots where the second-year quarterback admitted he was “seeing ghosts.” The admission was an honest one intended for his coaches, but ESPN playing it embarrassed the quarterback.
Le’Veon Bell did not like that and expressed his feelings via Twitter on Tuesday.
The NFL screwed Sammy over…there’s not one player in the NFL who’s cool with having every sideline convo broadcasted to millions…there’s a reason we’ve never heard other QB’s frustrated on the sideline like that before…that’s crazy, @NFL did Sam dirty as hell https://t.co/2XmYXNTNoL

It’s hard to disagree with Bell. Teams and players agree to cooperate with these sorts of projects with an understanding that the league won’t embarrass the subjects with this sort of privileged access. That’s why Adam Gase was so upset with ESPN and threatened to not be as cooperative in the future.
