Packers LB Clay Matthews said team had a good laugh at Martellus Bennett
In a story that just won’t die, even with Martellus Bennett joining the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is claiming the team has received some good giggles from the entire debacle of a situation.
“We all got a good laugh from it,” Matthews said. “It is what it is. Martellus is in their locker room now and not here anymore. So now we’re just focused on the guys we have in here.”
He said that, and yet he said more stuff about a guy who is no longer in his locker room. Well, only kind of, as he seems perturbed to still be receiving questions about Martellus Bennett.
“You know what, I think everybody knows the story there — we don’t need to talk about it much more,” Matthews added. “Like I said, we’re focused on the guys in the locker room, but it’s an interesting story that will probably be talked about for a while.”
Clay Matthews ended his discussion about not wanting to talk about the former Packers player by backing the medical staff Bennett bashed on his way out.
“My experience has been fantastic with Pat,” Matthews said. “I think he’s an awesome doc. I think he puts our health in front of the team first and foremost. In fact, I think a lot of people have gotten on his case because he’s too conservative. So I wouldn’t put much merit into those comments made. I think it really speaks volumes to hear everybody’s rebuttal and come to his aid in that regard as opposed to the other person.”
Can this be over now?
