Giants tight end Martellus Bennett arrived at the first day of training camp and immediately launched into a tirade about his former team, the Cowboys.
“I just want to kick those guys’ asses. That’s what it’s all about. We’re cool but we ain’t that cool,” Bennett told the New York Post. “I’ve kind of got some ill feelings toward them overall. But it’s a game. Every game is the same where I kind of hate everybody, honestly, in the NFL.”
I’m not sure how healthy it is to go through life hating everybody, but Bennett says he does.
“I have ill feelings toward everybody. It’s not just Dallas,” he said. “[Shoot], pretty much anybody who doesn’t play with us, I pretty much, I don’t like ‘em. I don’t like a lot of people. I’m kind of [a jerk], but it’s cool.”
Bennett is so eager to channel his hatred toward a great season that he said he wishes training camp could have started sooner.
“Super excited to play football. Couldn’t sleep last night because I got so excited,” he said. “I almost drove down here in the middle of the night but the wife told me I couldn’t.”
The good news for Bennett is that he won’t have to wait much longer. The Giants’ season-opening meeting with the Cowboys is now less than six weeks away.
