Martellus Bennett Reveals Why He Chooses To Remain RetiredChris Humphreys - USA TODAY Sports

When the New England Patriots traded for defensive end Michael Bennett earlier this month, rumors started swirling that his brother Martellus would come out of retirement to play with him in Foxboro.

Martellus, a key contributor for the 2016 Super Bowl champions, was once quoted saying he “would love” playing with Michael.

That rumor came ended Sunday when Martellus took to Instagram explaining why he won’t return to the NFL in 2019.

Since retirement, Bennett devoted time to the “Imagination Agency”, a company he founded focusing on children’s education with creative literature. He wrote his first book entitled “Dear Black Boy” last year.
