Michael Bennett had a candid interview talking about how quarterbacks are treated differently financially and in regards to the rules.
“Aaron Rodgers is probably the best quarterback in the NFL,” Bennett said. “But quarterback is the only position in the NFL where you can be mediocre and get paid. At every other position you can’t be mediocre. If I was like Ryan Tannehill, and say the most games I ever won was seven, how could you get $100 million for that?”
Bennett also commented on the protection quarterbacks receive in regards to how they're hit.
“I respect Tom Brady because when Tom Brady gets hit, he gets up and says, ‘Good job, good hit. He gets back in the huddle and handles his own, like a man. You have guys crying when they get hit like, ‘Oh, Suggs, Suggs hit me.'”
