Martellus Bennett wants to sell his Patriots Super Bowl ring

Martellus Bennett wants to sell his Patriots Super Bowl ring

If you're in the market for a Super Bowl ring, let Martellus Bennett know.

Bennett, who was a part of the Patriots' Super Bowl LI victory over the Falcons, took to Twitter to ask if anyone was interested in buying his ring.

If you're wondering whether Bennett's desire to sell his Super Bowl ring is a result of financial issues, the former Pats tight end wants to make it clear that isn't the case.

The ring isn't the only belonging he has put on the market recently.

For Bennett, it was all about the ring party. Not the ring itself. Plus, he doesn't need a ring to show he's a champion.

So how much is Bennett charging for the Super Bowl ring anyway? Stay tuned for an update on that. . .

Rob Gronkowski wanted no part of this question about Tom Brady's future

Rob Gronkowski wanted no part of this question about Tom Brady's future

Rob Gronkowski doesn't mind stirring the pot about his potential NFL comeback.

But he's not touching the Tom Brady speculation with a 10-foot pole.

The former New England Patriots tight end recently did a sit-down interview with Sportsnet's Stephen Brunt, who inevitably asked Gronkowski if he could imagine Brady joining another team in free agency this year.

Here's Gronkowski's response:

I mean, that’s a lot of speculation out there that I don’t even know — I sometimes read it and I’m like, 'Dang, this is crazy how much speculation goes out there.' I would say that’s probably all what it is, too. It’s just all speculation and all that type of stuff. But I don't know.

He’s been with New England for 19 years now, so, it'd be — who knows. Would it be weird? I don't know. It would be weird to a lot of people I would say. ... I don’t know, man. I can’t foresee the future, so, yeah.

We'll translate Gronk's answer for you: "I really don't want to talk about this."

Here's the clip of Gronkowski fielding that question (around the 7:05 mark), which easily was the most uncomfortable part of the interview:

 

Gronk and Brady are still close friends, so we can understand why the retired tight end doesn't want to speculate about Brady's future.

It's also possible Gronk couldn't even add to that speculation if he tried, considering Brady has said he's "open-minded" about his first offseason as an NFL free agent and seemingly could go either way about leaving or staying in New England.

This probably isn't the last time Gronkowski will be asked about his former quarterback -- Gronk will be an analyst for FOX's coverage of Super Bowl LIV -- but don't expect him to provide anything enlightening.

Patriots CB Joejuan Williams arrested on drug charges in Tennessee

New England Patriots rookie cornerback Joejuan Williams is facing drug charges after initially being stopped for speeding in Tennessee last week.

Williams, who's from Nashville, has been charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of legend drugs without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia, as well as speeding.

The 22-year-old was a second-round pick of the Patriots in 2019 from Vanderbilt and didn't play much last season — 80 defensive snaps and 84 special teams snaps in nine games.

The Patriots are aware of the situation and will not comment at this time.

Williams is the second Patriot arrested this offseason. Wide receiver Julian Edelman was arrested in Beverly Hills earlier in the month for vandalism.
