BOSTON (CBS) — Earlier this week, Michael Bennett said any speculation about his brother, Martellus, coming out of retirement to play with the Patriots was “fake news.” Marty B’s latest Instagram post seems to confirm that.
But even though Martellus won’t be catching passes from Tom Brady any time soon, the former tight end was willing and eager to dispense some advice about all of his former teammates, as well as Patriots staff members, so that his brother can go in prepared.
The Instagram post includes some photos of Michael speaking at Princeton earlier this week, and it includes detailed description of a number of Patriots. The note about Julian Edelman may be the best.
