Martellus Bennett Has a Message For Patriots Fans
Martellus Bennett took to Twitter last night to try and silence all those who are trying to push him to take less money in order to stay with the Patriots.
First of all put some respeck on my name it's Martellus. And the patriots didn't hand me anything me and my teammates earned that shit. https://t.co/mn2Pbol8bg— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) February 22, 2017
And you have no idea what I want. If you don't hear it from me stop believing repeating the shit. https://t.co/mn2Pbol8bg— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) February 22, 2017
And stop @'ing me about taking less money. You take less money and your job? All of you take a pay cut hahaha.— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) February 22, 2017
All I'm saying is cut your own grass don't be all in my garden fucking with my fruit while weeds are growing all over yours.— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) February 22, 2017
These tweets came within the same day of NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reporting that Bennett is planning on “testing free agency”, so there is a real possibility that he could leave New England.
It’s understandable for Bennett to want to try and get the most money that he possibly can. Players are different than team owners and management. For players, all they have are their bodies, so shouldn’t they try to get as much money as possible while they still can?
Yes, I would love to have Martellus Bennett stay with the Patriots. But, if he's happy with his one Superbowl ring and can make more money someplace else doing the exact same thing, can you really knock the guy?
