Blotch had mixed feelings after Martellus Bennett ditched the Dallas Cowboys and headed for the more polluted pastures of New York City. The Giants signed the free agent to a $2.5 million one-year contract after the Cowboys made little attempt to hang on to the tight end with the overwhelming potential but underwhelming performances.
Marty B. consistently failed to deliver during his years with the Cowboys.
The former Texas A&M star had a case of the dropsies with Dallas, and he grew frustrated in Jason Witt’s long shadow.
But Bennett was one funny dude. His rap videos and tweets were weird and wonderful, and he often caught Blotch’s attention.
New York Daily News spotlighted Bennett’s unique sense of humor in an article today: The stand-up tight tend: Martellus Bennett adds big personality, athleticism to the NY Giants. The New York Times did their own version of the story last month.
If Bennett turns out to be a better comedian than a tight end, he won’t last in New York.
Fortunately for Bennett, he played a good game against his old team on Wednesday. He caught four passes and scored a touchdown — he hadn’t scored a TD in three previous seasons with the Cowboys.
