TE Bennett Brings Quirkiness, Versatility To Bears

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) -- The most interesting person on the Chicago Bears' roster?

Easy.

New tight end Martellus Bennett insists it's him, and it's hard to argue.

After all, this is a player who discussed his lactose intolerance at his introductory news conference in March and was on quite a roll in training camp this week, referring to Spiderman and the Bible and discussing his fascination with dinosaurs.

Along with his funny and quirky nature, he brings an ability to block and catch passes that the Bears lacked at his position.

All that explains why they lured him away from the New York Giants with a four-year deal, hoping he can help them get back to the playoffs after missing out for the fifth time in six seasons.
