Martellus Bennett Calls Wearing Patriots Uniform ‘A Dream Come True’


Martellus Bennett enjoyed yet another highly productive game Sunday, catching three touchdown passes from Tom Brady in a blowout win over the Cleveland Browns.

After the game, Bennett shared on Twitter just how much fun he’s having this season as a member of the New England Patriots.

The outspoken tight end has been New England’s most prolific pass-catcher through five games, leading the team in both receiving yards (314) and receiving touchdowns (four) and ranking second behind wide receiver Julian Edelman in catches (21). He’s meshed well with all three Patriots quarterbacks (Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett) and has two 100-yard receiving performances to show for it.

“I’ve been a lot of places,” Bennett said after Sunday’s 33-13 win over the Browns, “and the Patriots fans in the city of Boston and Massachusetts have just been one of the great fan bases I’ve ever been in. It’s not just football; it’s every sport there. I love the fans that we have and all the support they give us. It’s fun playing for people who love their team the way they love their team here.”
