Martellus Bennett has proven to Chicago he is skilled on the football field, racking up 65 receptions for 759 yards and five touchdowns in his first season with the Bears. The 6-foot-6, 265 pound tight end has many talents off of the gridiron as well. To say it simply, Bennett is an artist. He has a creative mind that is intrigued by the fine arts, interior design and fashion.
Bennett also has a passion for music, and on Friday MartysaurusRex released a 17 track Hip-Hop mixtape entitled "Year of the Orange Dinosaur".
Here is the track list and links to each song:
