New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett isn’t exactly a one-for-one replacement for injured Rob Gronkowski on the field, but in the locker room, in front of cameras and microphones, he’s at least fun-loving Gronk’s equal.
On Thursday, the veteran was chatting with reporters in the Patriots’ locker room; according to Boston Herald beat reporter Jeff Howe, a question that mentioned “striking gold” somehow led to Bennett mentioning Canada and Canadian bacon, and according to him, “no one likes Canadian bacon.”
Which then led to a riff from Bennett on the greatness of bacon.
