Not to disappoint his fans, but Martellus Bennett probably won’t be coming out of retirement any time soon.
A cornered Patriots fan tweeted at the former Bears and Patriots tight end, asking him how he could convince the franchise to get Bennett back on the field. (RELATED: Michael Bennett Charged For Allegedly Attacking An Elderly Paraplegic Victim)
“Is there anyway
#PatriotsNation can convince you to come out of retirement?” the fan tweeted.

Martellus surprised his fan with a reply, referencing what’s apparently his frequent marijuana use, saying, “I wouldn’t pass the drug test. Lol. Been on that @wizkhalifa diet. Kush & OJ.” (RELATED: Watch Michael Bennett Get Taken Into Police Custory)

And while NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is outwardly opposed to players frequently using marijuana, Bennett’s followers don’t seem to feel the same way.
The tweet has received 13,000 likes and 3,300 retweets since it was posted on Tuesday evening.
Let’s just hope the Patriots don’t miss him too much this season.
