EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Former Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett tried to be diplomatic about his four seasons in Dallas, and did his best to look forward to his new career as the starting tight end for the New York Giants.
There was no boasting about either wanting to get back at Dallas in the NFL season opener Wednesday night at MetLife Stadium or taking any cheap shots at former quarterback Tony Romo or Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
The free-spirited Bennett kept his thoughts and any lingering bitterness close to the vest, for the most part. The former second-round draft pick insists he just wants to help the Giants win this season and show that he can be a dominant player now that he is out of Jason Witten's shadow.
