John Feinstein on why Gruden had to name RG3 starter
Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett appears to have a problem with Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. Or Facebook. Or maybe both.
Last week RG3 responded to a fan's question on Facebook and proceeded to defend his appearance, his actions and his commercial career. Like most things Griffin does, the Facebook post gained a lot of attention, including Bennett's. The Bears player then took to Twitter to belittle Griffin's statement, and in a weird turn, make fun of his choice of social networks.
Who still has facebook anyways? Lol. I'm going to release a statement on my MySpace Music Page.— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) January 13, 2014
Later Bennett had some choice words believed to be aimed at former Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington.
Lavar looks like a koopa troopa and talks like Boomhauer.— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) January 13, 2014
Bennett's rant seemed bizarre above anything else, and perhaps that was the point, as he hinted that the whole episode was a "social experiment."
My social experiment for the day is complete. Thank you all for participating.— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) January 13, 2014
