So just to be clear, we're going all Casserly-Polian on his ass?
Marty is just trolling Pats fans
Who cares, sign him!
If Martellius wants to come out of retirement (I'm dubious of), he's been keeping himself somewhere in the ballpark of football shape (I'm uncertain of), his back and any other health issues are resolved (I'm questioning of), his 1.5 years away from football in no way discourages him from the zealous and very time consuming work needed for the toughest program in the NFL (I'm doubtful of), and he will take a 'no risk to the Patriots if cut' contract (I'm skeptical of)?? What is BB waiting for, sign him without hesitation and immediately!!
I think it could go deeper than that. Sufficient mentions in the dopey sports media translates to money (Gronk was making that an art form the past few years). If so then very smart of Martellius.
He may be retired from playing the game of football but playing the game of earning money is a game one rarely retires from. And to quote a movie "money won is twice as sweet as money earned"
... And rusted. Not that the rust can't be scraped off, but there's rust factor for sure.
And just for the record, I'm all for it.
Fresh? If a player has been working out damn hard with the singular mental and physical goal to get back to playing in the NFL? I could buy the fresh argument.
If player (one in his 30s) is seemingly happy, and calmly decides, to retire from the game without any further intention of continuing/staying in that lofty mental and physical football shape? I'd say that leans more toward stale than fresh.
I hate to be the buzz kill for the Marty resurrection parade but does anyone actually know if he has even been keeping in very good shape? Is his back issues resolved to a football degree? Some indication he has a very serious urge to get back to the extreme grind known as an NFL season? Will be happy to do this at a yearly pay rate notably below what he was accustomed to before retirement?
How can it not benefit the patriots to give Marty a chance to compete with Hollister, Izzo and Anderson for our #3 TE roster spot?
At worst, he is cut.
At best, he is the backup to the 2 starters, including someone like James.
Alternatively, he competes with a draftee for the #2 spot, or backs him up.
Marty is a low cost option that could help the 2019 team.
How do we know that he will even want to return as merely a low-cost option?
I would love the Bennett brothers on the radio up against Felger and Mazz.
Can we throw in KVN for good measure?
I rather have KVN and his wife on a TV show.
In related news, Beck Bennett is playing Squirrel in the Netflix movie
And Michael will indeed come out if Tony Bennett sings the national anthem on Banner Raising Night.
Hard to imagine being prouder of our Pats than we already are, but if the whole team including Tom raised a clenched fist in support of persecuted African Americans that would rule.
...not to mention piss off the racist owners
Just because Kraft doesn't like red doesn't mean he's a racist.
...and see them grind Douche and Squeaky into dust.
Nor does it mean he approves of two stolen first rounders, but he's in the minority there
...and he's not actually doing anything about either
I could live with being thin at Brandon and Malcolm, if we're two deep at the Bennett position...
Kraft just founded the REFORM alliance back in January, which is huge. His efforts will help promote change to the criminal justice system, particularly for those of color.
His actions speak much louder than raising a fist in the air. Last I heard, there were some pretty hefty figures getting thrown around. Too bad he went and got himself in trouble, because this was big news. He should be regarded as something of a hero, instead of a dirty old man.
Robert Kraft and Criminal Justice Reform - What is Robert Kraft's REFORM Alliance?
Some think it could’ve worked, but it also had the potential to backfire in a terrible way, so as a fan, I’m glad to hear that Martellus will be continuing to smoke weed and play with colorforms, or sidewalk chalk, or slime, or whatever medium he chooses for his art, these days.
Did you just quote Molly's Game?
I just watched that. Decent movie
