New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett had some choice words for his former teammate, Jason Witten, in a recent interview.
Bennett spoke to ESPN’s E:60 for a feature on himself and his brother, Michael, who plays for the Seattle Seahawks. During the interview, Martellus was frank about what Witten was like as a teammate during his first three seasons in the league with the Dallas Cowboys.
“Witten didn’t talk to me when I was in Dallas,” Martellus said. “He didn’t help me. Very rarely did we talk. I hated him. I hated Witten.”
He was also critical of former Vanderbilt QB Jay Cutler, his teammate when he was with the Chicago Bears from 2013-2015.
“Some people that you want to be the leader is not the guy that’s the leader,” he said of Cutler. “And everyone in the locker room knows that this is not the leader.”
