BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Retired tight end Martellus Bennett won a Super Bowl with the Patriots to cap the 2016 season and, like his teammates, was rewarded with football immortality and a ring with 283 diamonds. You know, to signify the 28-3 comeback over the Falcons.
Thing is, Bennett doesn't need the reminder.
He tweeted yesterday, "Anyone wanna buy a Super Bowl ring? Doing spring cleaning."
Bennett said he's not broke—the ring just doesn't do anything for him. He doesn't wear it, doesn't plan to, and he'd rather sell it than keep it in a box.
Bennett wrote, "I don't need a ring to remember I'm a Super Bowl champ."
He said he's serious and may do a raffle after he decides on pricing.
This string of tweets came on the heels of last week's video teasing a return to New England.
Bennett retweeted a fan who wrote, "Gotta get another ring, Marty."
But, we know the bling isn't all that important to him.
