New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is never afraid to speak his mind, particularly when discussing his old team.
Bennett sounded off on the Chicago Bears when discussing a variety of topics in a profile of him and his brother on ESPN’s “E:60.” The self-proclaimed “black unicorn” gave a very colorful remark when asked why things didn’t work out during his three-year tenure with the Bears.
“We just had a bunch of bitches on the roster, that’s why we didn’t win games,” Bennett said. “And coaches like the bitches.”
That wasn’t all, however. Bennett also called out quarterback Jay Cutler and said the rest of the team knew he wasn’t actually the team’s leader.
“Some people that you want to be a leader is not the guy that’s the leader and everyone in the locker room knows that this is not the leader. But this is what you want the face of the team to look like.”
Needless to say, there’s still bad blood between Bennett and the franchise that traded him to New England over the offseason. Bennett’s been extremely beneficial for the Patriots and caught three touchdown passes during New England’s 33-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns last weekend.
The profile titled “The Brothers Bennett,” will air Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN. You can check out the entire trailer below:
