No player knelt during the national anthem before tonight’s Patriots-Cardinals game, but New England tight end Martellus Bennett and defensive back Devin McCourty raised their fists afterward.
ESPN’s Mina Kimes has written a great profile of Michael and Martellus Bennett, the two brothers who consistently provide the best soundbites in the NFL. The whole story is an enjoyable read, but one highlight is the brothers issuing raw takes on other figures around the league.
Their trade for Martellus Bennett feels like a good, exciting move for the Patriots, who haven’t had a second real pass-catching tight end since Aaron Hernandez, and who figure to enter this season with one of their more offensive-minded teams in a few years. Even better for New England’s Super Bowl hopes, Bennett…
The Patriots are trading for Bears tight end Martellus Bennett, according to Adam Schefter. This gives them the best one-two TE punch they’ve had since, well, you know.
The Bears, despite any strange injury shenanigans, played their best game of the year down in St. Louis as they left with a 37-13 win. They put up their highest point total of the year and were clearly feeling themselves, Martellus Bennett most of all. Bennett, who is always good for a fantastic quote, was not shy…
Jay Cutler returned from a strained hamstring to tough out a close win over the Raiders. Coming off last week’s debacle in Seattle, it’s almost enough to make the average Bears fan thankful for a competent quarterback. Almost. But hey, talk radio would’ve savaged Jesus too. Right, Martellus Bennett?
Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has never had any compunction about publicly speaking his mind, and today’s beneficiary is Chicago magazine, which dropped a very entertaining profile of Bennett. In a wide-ranging interview conducted in May—when Bennett was holding out from OTA workouts in an attempt to get a richer…
Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett unfollowed guard Kyle Long. Long wasn't happy. He responded in kind:
Training camp scuffles happen frequently, because NFL players get sweaty and tired of their teammates' faces, but Martellus Bennett went further than the usual slap or half-punch.
In an ugly game that saw seven turnovers and three touchdowns scored by defense or special teams, it was Jay Cutler and his new favorite toy that made the difference. Down six, Cutler led the Bears 66 yards in three minutes, hooking up with TE Martellus Bennett for the winner.
Last week, Cowboy beat reporters wondered why Bennett was absent from the first few days of mini-camp. Bennett admitted yesterday he sprained his ankle doing "jump-ball" drills. Today, a cellphone pic self-portrait of him posing in the shower arrives.
Martellus Bennett (no relation) is best known for his fine performance on HBO's Hard Knocks and his ability to rhyme "Romo" with "homo." Now he's a blogger....and he is awesome at it.
The Cowboys' Martellus Bennett is sorry for that earlier rap, when he rhymed "Romo" with "homo." Precisely $22,000 worth of sorry. So he'd like to make it up to you with ... another rap.
Dear VH1: Please develop a reality series starring Terrell Owens, in which he examines his many personal problems with his publicists. P.S., I am not a crackpot.
