Former Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett had some beef with his former team. After he signed with the New York Giants last month, he was quoted saying (about the Cowboys), “I just want to kick those guys’ asses.” It seemed kind of random, but his frustrations must have just boiled over after getting no playing time behind Jason Witten. Dallas Cowboys fans, as outspoken as they are, got all NSFW on Martellus on Twitter, dropping f-bombs left and right.

This is one of the Twitter beefs we can empathize with. Bennett was a total underachiever in Dallas, and seeing him run his mouth at this former team moments after signing with their rival is a pretty douchey move. On top of the “I just want to kick those guys’ asses” quote, he continued to say:

“That is what it is all about. I mean we are cool but we ain’t that cool, know what I am saying? I kind of got some ill feelings towards them overall. It is a game, I kind of hate everybody, honestly, in the NFL.”

Sounds like a complete idiot. Oh, and he showed up to camp weighing 291 pounds. Can’t say the Giants were happy with their new tight end showing up looking like a tub of lard.
