Martellus Bennett “Grinding” In Slowtown TampaFebruary 28th, 2013
Legions of Bucs fans would love to see beastly, soon-to-be-free-agent tight end Martellus Bennett wearing pewter and red next month and playing alongside his brother Michael.
Joe wouldn’t mind that either. The younger Bennett is a beastly blocker and emerged as a versatile pass-catcher last season with 55 receptions in the Giants offense, which just happens to be very much like the Bucs’. And Martellus is a very candid Twitterer. The dude puts it out there.
Martellus Bennett was in Tampa yesterday working out hard, “grinding for the love of the game” per his Twitter account, with Gerald McCoy, Michael Bennett and Roy Miller. But it seems Martellus may not like how we country folk go about things.
@JoeGryffindor – (aka Martellus Bennett) -Tampa is one of the slowest places in the world. Lol. Visiting here from NY is like running fast on a treadmill then gettin off to walk.
Yes, Martellus, Tampa runs at a pretty slow pace compared to the Big Apple. But the leader of the New Schiano Order runs his OTAs and training camp practices like the herd of suits move along Wall Street at lunch hour.
