Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett says things. Many things. No, really, a lot of things.
And when you deal in that kind of bulk, it’s inevitable that some are colorful, and some are inflammatory.
His latest target is Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and the Chicago roster at large, taking some shots at his old team in an E:60 piece on ESPN.
“Some people that you want to be a leader are not the guy that’s the leader,” Bennett said, via ESPN.com. “And everyone in the locker room knows that this is not the leader, but this is what you want the face of the team to look like.”
He also took a fairly direct shot at the entire roster, and the way things were handled during his three years there.
“We just had a bunch of b—-es on the roster — that’s why we didn’t win games — and coaches liked the b—-es,” Bennett said.
He’s now on his fourth team in nine years, and while he’s very talented, it’s also hard to separate the player people want and the guy teams keep getting rid of. They both exist in there.
The Bears went 19-29 in Bennett’s three seasons there, then traded him and a sixth-round pick to the Patriots for a fourth-round pick.
