Michael Bennett: Jay Cutler is the ‘worst quarterback in the NFL’
Wednesday August 3rd, 2016

In an interview with ESPN’s Mina Kimes, Michael and Martellus Bennett spoke candidly about several prominent 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. The tight end spent the past three seasons alongside Cutler playing for the Bears before being traded to the Patriots.

Michael also took a shot at NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

When Kimes asked him about Goodell, Michael responded, “A**hole. Nah, I’m just joking—you can’t say that. Overpaid.”

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.
