The Dallas Cowboys apparently have a weapon like no other in the NFL. His name is Martellus Bennett and he was the third overall pick for the Cowboys. He’s a tight end and a former Aggie. Consider him the David Blaine of the NFL. Just listen to this interview here.
Bennett, who can play basketball, has claimed he has the vertical leap of Vince Carter, which may not be a farce. He’s not sure of his wingspan but “I believe I can fly.”
His greatest strength?
“I have X-ray vision.“
He has the willingness to do “whatever it takes.”
“They forgot to put, I can teleport, too.”
Why didn’t the other NFL scouts know this about Bennett? Imagine a receiver who could teleport to the other side of the field in a split second. That trick is going to be unstoppable. Bennett is a character, and the press already love him. HBO is going to have an orgasm over this kid when Hard Knocks starts.
Bennett is playing behind one of the best tight ends in the game, so it is unlikely he is going to get a whole lot of playing time there. But his athleticism may allow the Cowboys to push the envelope a little bit and spread him out with Terrell Owens, providing a double corner end zone threat. I like the sound of that, even if he teleports there.
