In an interview with ESPN’s Mina Kimes, Michael and Martellus Bennett spoke candidly about their opinions on several NFL figures.
Michael did not hold back when discussing the Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.
“Worst quarterback in the NFL,” Michael said of Cutler. The defensive end has openly criticized quarterbacks he considers to be overpaid in the past.
“I’d be open and he’d throw into double coverage,” Martellus added. He spent the past three seasons alongside Cutler playing for the Bears before being traded to the Patriots.
Not even NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was safe from the brothers’ commentary.
When asked about Goodell Michael responded, “A**hole. Nah, I’m just joking—you can’t say that. Overpaid.”
The brothers have the stats to back up their outspoken personalities. Over the course of his career, Michael, 30, has 219 combined tackles, 40.5 sacks, and 8 forced fumbles. Martellus, 29, has has 348 receptions for 3,556 yards and 23 touchdowns in eight seasons.
