Martellus Bennett Sounds Open To Staying With Patriots For Non-Football Reasons


The New England Patriots have some decisions to make this offseason with 19 players hitting the free agent market in one capacity or another.

One of the Patriots’ unrestricted free agents is tight end Martellus Bennett.

Bennett, who turns 30 next month, knows that he could find himself elsewhere in 2017 due to his new status as a Super Bowl champion. And while the veteran tight end gave the impression that his Patriots career might only last one season, he sang a bit of a different tune on Twitter on Wednesday, and his reasoning isn’t based solely on New England’s gridiron greatness.

Bennett has a colorful personality and has been outspoken about his non-football ambitions.

Few players would pass up a larger paycheck, but Bennett would be one of the few to look at the bigger picture outside of the game of football.
