Martellus Bennett has never been one to keep his opinions to himself. Now the one time plus-sized New York Giants tight end revealed his recent success is due to the fact that he's not playing with Tony Romo.
The 6-foot-6 Bennett drooped by Manhattan's Old Homestead Steakhouse the other night with teammate Michael Coe and was overheard telling a waiter that he now has a better quarterback throwing to him, according to Page Six of The New York Post.
"Romo isn't even in the same league as Eli Manning. Not even close," said Bennett, according to the source.
Bennett, who is enjoying a resurgence with Big Blue after a disappointing season with the Dallas Cowboys, already has 15 catches and three touchdowns with Manning at the helm. He had no touchdown catches last year with Romo calling the shots.
Manning's new favorite third-down option came into training camp weighing a whopping 291 pounds but now Bennett looks like Tim Tebow in a Vogue photo spread.
After dishing on Romo and Eli, Bennett was seen signing napkins and receipts for customers at the famous eatery.
They don't call him Mar-Tell us for nothing.
