ICYMI: Martellus Bennett Goes On Twitter Rant About State of the NFLScott Galvin - USA TODAY Sports

Since signing on with the New England Patriots back in March, tight end Martellus Bennett hasn’t been afraid to voice his thoughts and opinions publicly, both filtered and unfiltered in interviews or over social media.

Late Monday night, Bennett decided to take to Twitter to share how he felt about the current state of the NFL and its declining television ratings by beginning with what he calls an “oversaturated” market.

He then pokes fun at the fact technology now enables fans to watch games in all sorts of ways and notes fantasy football even gets its own shows with nearly as much coverage.

Bennett then comments on the leagues latest venture into expanding its brand through international markets such as the United Kingdom and Mexico with a comparison to Apple.

Bennett then closed with a rather intriguing comparison to both The Walking Dead and MySpace, does he imply the league is heading in the same direction?

In the end, regardless of what happens, in a time where social media allows everyone’s voice to be heard, it was a pretty impressive rant from a member of a team that for the most part remains largely quiet under head coach Bill Belichick.
