Martellus Bennett was a very colorful character on the Patriots last year. He was known for being very vocal with his off the wall banter. Bennett once called himself, “the Kanye West of the NFL.” During his post-game interview after the Super Bowl 51 victory, Bennett said, “I’m going into free agency as a Super Bowl champion, you know they overpay Super Bowl champions!” That’s the Marty B that we were used to and wouldn’t of had him any other way.
Recently Bennett sat down with the Houston Chronicle and has some words about going from playing with Tom Brady to Aaron Rodgers:
“That’s like leaving J. Lo and going to Halle Berry,” Bennett told the Houston Chronicle. “We (he and Rodgers) talk often. I’m excited about playing with him. We’ve known each other for a while. I’m excited about working with him and learning his quarterback language and showing him what type of player I am. I think I’m a lot better player than they think I am.”
Such a huge role in the Patriots Super Bowl 51 run! Thanks for the memories Marty and good luck with your future endeavors!
