Martellus Bennett tweeted Sunday that playing for the New England Patriots is “a dream come true,” and it’s easy to see why based on some of his other NFL experiences.
The tight end and his brother, Michael Bennett, a defensive end for the Seattle Seahawks, are the stars of Wednesday’s ESPN “E:60,” and Martellus certainly didn’t hold back his feelings on a few choice topics.
In a promo for the episode, Martellus, who played for the Chicago Bears from 2013 to 2015, had a few choice words for the team and quarterback Jay Cutler.
“Some people who you want to be a leader is not the guy that’s the leader,” Martellus said of Cutler. “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.”
“We just had a bunch of bitches on the roster,” he added about the Bears. “That’s why we didn’t win games. And coaches like the bitches.”
The former Dallas Cowboy also had this to say about former teammate and fellow tight end Jason Witten:
“Witten didn’t talk to me when I was in Dallas,” he said. “He didn’t help me. Very rarely did we talk. I hated him. I hated Witten.”
Michael also had some pretty interesting quotes about NFL commisioner Roger Goodell and the NCAA, which you can hear the promo for the episode, which airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET, below.
