The New England Patriots signed Michael Bennett, and it seems like that’s pretty much the only Bennett they are getting this season. Martellus Bennett brought a decision on his NFL comeback.
Following Michael’s contract with New England, fans started talking about the possibility that his brother joins the same team. But, Martellus Bennett isn’t coming.
Martellus took to
Instagram to give his reasons for making such decision.
“This is why I can’t come out of retirement,” Bennett
wrote on Instagram and added several photos of children with his
Black Boy. “I would love to play ball with my brother. It
would truly be a dream come true. But, my biggest dream is to change lives with
my creativity and that is what I am currently doing [at the Imagination Agency]. These kids don’t need
another athlete to look up to or to aspire to be. There’s plenty of inspiration
out there for that.
“I want to inspire the next wave of creatives. The
storytellers. The engineers. The designers. The doctors. The filmmakers. The
composers. Tech moguls. And maybe a few athletes who, like me, never felt like
they belonged in a locker room. I was never one of the guys
guys — most of my teammates would tell that. I’ve always been
a creative [mind], who enjoyed competing. I’m playing the game that I was made
to play and it’s the most fun I’ve ever had. Scoring touchdowns, winning a
Super Bowl has never made me feel the way seeing kids/families/people enjoying
things I have created.
“I’m doing my life’s work fulfilling what I believe to be my
life’s purpose. I hope everyone finds something that makes them as happy and as
fulfilled as I have with my work [at
the Imagination Agency]. I appreciate all of the love, but this is waaaaayyy
bigger than the game of football.”
