Bears suspend and fine Bennett

Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has always seemed like a different cat. I remember him writing a blog for a newspaper’s website about women farting. So, there’s that.

But, now he’s done something to actually get him in hot water with his employers. Bennett has been suspended for an undetermined amount of time from the team and fined for conduct detrimental. I’m not sure exactly what he did, but it must have been bad.

Bennett did get into a dustup with rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller in practice on Monday. He was kicked off of the field and since he hasn’t returned since, it could be reasonable to surmise that this is why he was suspended and fined. Had to be more than a run-of-the-mill training camp fight that’s for sure.

We’ll keep an eye on this and see when he comes back. Can’t imagine he’s not back some time this week.
