Bears' Martellus Bennett, Kyle Long are Twitter buddies again

Monday January 19th, 2015

Chicago Bears teammates Martellus Bennett and Kyle Long made headlines last week when they appeared to bicker on Twitter over an unfollowing (though Long later claimed it was sarcasm), but all seems to be well now between the two. 

After Bennett was named to the upcoming Pro Bowl on Monday to replace Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Long sent him a public congratulations and let everyone know that things are cool between them.

Bennett even responded, calling Long his "bro" and referencing how he previously had said he had more important things to do than read Long's tweets.

The two may be Twitter buddies again, but they still haven't re-followed each other. Maybe one day?
