Martellus Bennett Literally Too Excited To Sleep After Patriots’ Super Bowl Berth


New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett couldn’t hide his excitement Sunday night, and that apparently carried over into the morning.

Bennett and the Patriots dismantled the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday night, earning a berth in Super Bowl LI. While Super Bowl trips almost are taken for granted in New England — the Patriots are making their NFL-record ninth trip to the big game — Bennett is getting his first taste.

He understandably was overcome with joy Sunday night, dancing with the Patriots cheerleaders after the game and talking about how he was going to bake a celebratory cake.

And while we’re not sure whether he actually baked that cake, it appears the big tight end spent his Sunday night and Monday morning doing anything but sleeping.

He also made a request to a local radio station and talked about his “magical” dancing shoes.

It’s good to be Martellus Bennett right about now.

UPDATE (9 a.m. ET): No cake. Alas.
