Burfict tells Bennett low his hit was 'unintentional'

Vontaze Burfict got on the New England Patriots’ bad side very quickly Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals linebacker, whose reputation precedes him, drew New England’s ire in the fourth quarter of their matchup with a seemingly unecessary low hit on Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett. The dirty play caused plenty of tension between the two teams, as Rob Gronkowski got in Burfict’s...

Martellus Bennett: Vontaze Burfict apologized for low hit

Vontaze Burfict has a reputation for being a dirty player, so it’s no surprise that one of his low hits had him in the middle of a controversy. But at least this time he is apologizing. During the New England Patriots-Cincinnati Bengals game on Sunday, Burfict went low with a dive at the back of Bennett’s knees when the Pats tight end was waiting for a pass (video here). Given...

Jason Witten blows off Martellus Bennett’s critical comments

To say that Jason Witten isn’t overly concerned about getting slammed recently by former Dallas Cowboys teammate Martellus Bennett might be an understatement. The Cowboys veteran tight end was blasted by the current New England Patriots player. The accusation was that Witten never talked to his younger teammate. This resulted in Bennett, who played four seasons with the Cowboys...

Alshon Jeffery responds to former teammate Martellus Bennett

Alshon Jeffery has heard what former teammate Martellus Bennett has had to say about the Chicago Bears. Unsurprisingly, he didn’t like it. Bennett was specifically critical of Jay Cutler in a segment on ESPN’s E:360. But he lumped the entire team in, saying “we just had a bunch of bit***s on the roster.” Jeffery responded, wondering why this criticism is only now coming...

Bennett tries to pull a Gronkowski, botches celebration

If Martellus Bennett is going to keep catching touchdown passes for the New England Patriots, he’s going to need to work on his celebration game. Bennett attempted to throw down an emphatic spike after the first of his two first-half touchdown receptions Sunday and … well, let’s just say he’s no Rob Gronkowski in that department. Tom Brady to @MartysaurusRex...And he...

Martellus Bennett amusingly describes Pats' 'chip' mentality

FOXBORO, Mass. — Even when speaking in cliches, Martellus Bennett always finds a way to deliver a compelling quote. Asked Thursday whether the New England Patriots are “playing with a chip on their shoulder” now that quarterback Tom Brady is back from his four-game Deflategate suspension, Bennett said yes — but only because they have been all along. “We just try to continue...

Martellus Bennett’s Patriots introduction will leave you laughing

Martellus Bennett has a very unique personality. He put a very tiny piece of that on display Sunday night. The New England Patriots tight end started in place of the injured Rob Gronkowski, and because the Patriots were on national television against the Arizona Cardinals, Bennett got to do one of the quick video introductions where players give their name and alma mater. “Marty”...

Martellus Bennett releasing children’s books and games

For the first time since Aaron Hernandez teamed up with Rob Gronkowski to form a dynamic tight end duo on the field, the New England Patriots will boast two Pro Bowl-caliber tight ends on the roster at the same time. However, the Pats won’t have to worry about this particular tight end showing up on police blotters and in murder investigations. The team acquired veteran Martellus...
