New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett has made waves after an honest ESPN interview in which he took shots at several different members of the Chicago Bears and other former teammates.

Bennett recalled his distaste for Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, who he played behind from 2008-2011, making it clear the veteran was not helpful to him when he broke into the league.

“Witten didn’t talk to me when I was in Dallas. He didn’t help me,” Bennett said. “Very rarely did we talk. I hated him. I hated Witten.”

When asked about Bennett’s comments, Witten seemed unbothered by his former teammate’s claims.

“Busy schedule,” Witten said when asked if he’d heard the comments. “I’ll make sure to get around to that real quick to see it. I did hear about it. Marty is a good player. He really is. He enjoys entertaining, but I’m glad he’s in a good place now and he’s having a good year so far. He is. He’s a good football player.”
