Bears rumors: Martellus Bennett wants Chicago to sign Michael Bennett and start a 'Black Duck Dynasty'


The Chicago Bears are apparently targeting Michael Bennett to be their new stud defensive end, and his brother Martellus Bennett — who plays tight end for the Bears — is very down with the idea. Not only is Martellus up for playing with his brother, but he already has the marketing strategy laid out.

Per the Chicago Tribune:

“If the contract is not the numbers that you want, you got to think about the market and off the field,” the Bears tight end said. “We could do Doublemint commercials. Look at Duck Dynasty. Talk about the Black Duck Dynasty right now. Me and you, bro. So it’s just a lot of opportunity. Chicago is the best fans, unique city, great opportunities business-wise, which I know there’s a lot of things you want to do off the field after football. None of those things are tech or coffee, so, I mean, Seattle, that’s what they’re offering you. So come on down to Chicago, man.

Bennett has been a character since he arrived in Chicago and having two Bennett’s in town wold actually market itself for the Bears. Michael Bennett is the top defensive end free agent on the market though, which means if Martellus wants his brother to come play with him, he might have to fork over some money first.
