Josh Bellamy doesn’t regret the argument he got into Monday, even though it contributed to the Bears decision to cut fellow receiver Tre McBride.

“I don’t feel bad for nothing,” he said Thursday.

Still, Bellamy tried to downplay the argument, which spilled into the hallway outside the wide receiver room and could be heard by nearby media members.

“Brotherly love, man,” Bellamy said. “Everybody, we love each other, man. Brothers get into it. You ever get into it with your brother?”

Bellamy was told that brotherly arguments don’t end with someone being fired the next day. McBride was waived after the argument.

“He didn’t get fired,” he said. “He’s just on … relieve.”

Bellamy said he’s trying to hold his teammates responsible. He said he’s frustrated by losing, but wasn’t letting that affect how he interacted with his teammates.
