I'm tired of this nonsense.

Unsubstantiated rumors continue to circle about Andy Reid retiring this offseason and Bill Belichick taking over as the Chiefs' head coach, despite Reid's public denial of any desire to retire, and it's time to stop the BS.

No, Mike Florio, no, Michele Tafoya, Travis Kelce and Andy Reid are not retiring. They've said as much themselves! The repeated insistence from clickbait perpetrators just serves as a reminder of the journalists who have credibility and those who do not.

Nonsense Andy Reid-Bill Belichick Chiefs Rumors Circulate from Unsubstantiated Sources

Let's think about this for a second.

If Andy Reid wanted to retire, do you really think his circle would feed that information to the guy who suggested the 49ers try to injure Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl instead of one of the numerous reputable local reporters, like Nate Taylor or Pete Sweeney?

Here's what Taylor of The Athletic said about the rumors today:

Andy Reid is under contract through next season and has given no public indication whatsoever that he's even considered retirement this year.

There's no reason to give any credence to people like Florio who are purely trying to drive attention to themselves with nonsense rumors.

I'm tired of it and you should be too. When Andy Reid chooses to ride off into the sunset, he's not going to do it like this. Regarding the Belichick portion, Brett Veach is entrenched as the Chiefs' general manager and he's not about to relinquish control of player personnel.

Considering Belichick has been in charge of player decisions for the Patriots for years, it's nearly impossible to imagine a scenario that he takes over as coach of the Chiefs barring a complete shift in either his own responsibility or Veach's.

Don't give Florio the attention he's craving. Reid isn't going anywhere.
