Martellus Bennett is having a nice career resurgence for the New England Patriots, racking up 21 catches for 314 yards and four touchdowns in just five weeks. On Tuesday an E:60 segment with Martellus and his brother Michael Bennett was posted online. Lets just say it featured some strong words from the tight end about his former Chicago Bears teammates.

The money quote:
“We just had a bunch of b****es on the roster. That’s why we didn’t win games. And coaches liked the bitches.”
Wow, that’s uh, yeah that’s a pretty strong take.
When asked about Jay Cutler, Martellus dropped another bomb:
“Some people that you want to be a leader are 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.”
But no, Martellus, tell us how you really feel, please don’t hold back.
