Chicago Bears: Martellus Bennett Has Bright Future As NFL General Manager
Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery might want to watch his back.
Martellus Bennett is only 26 years old and still has plenty of years left on the gridiron as one of the NFL‘s top tight ends, but it’s safe to say that Bennett has a future as a general manager — or at least a car salesman. On Tuesday, Bennett revealed on a Chicago radio show that he has actively been recruiting his brother, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, to play for the Bears in 2014.
In case you’re unaware; the Bears’ defense has been historically bad this year as the team’s pass rush is nonexistent. Therefore, Martellus is just in his courting of his talented brother. Michael signed a one-year deal with Seattle this offseason and has been one of the best defensive ends over the past two seasons with 15.5 sacks since the beginning of 2012.
Needless to say, the Bears could really use a third Bennett on the team — Earl Bennett is a Bears wide receiver, but is not related to Martellus or Michael. Chicago fans have taken to Martellus like none other and the tight end obviously likes it here if he is telling Michael that “Hey, our kids (can) grow up together, we’re right around the corner from each other.”
While Emery will have the last say on whether or not Michael is the right fit for the Bears this offseason, Martellus is going to do everything in his power to give Chicago an edge — and maybe bring another Bennett to town in the process.
