    BOURBONNAIS — Before Bears coach Marc Trestman called practice short Monday afternoon after Martellus Bennett slammed first-round pick Kyle Fuller to the ground, a defensive player called the tight end out.

    Bennett, as he's apt to do, was walking back to the huddle after a rep in team drills with the first-team offense. It's a distinctive strut and one he has had since day one a year ago.

    "Run it back, run it back, run it back," the player said with Bennett walking the whole way.

    You see, Bennett's practice habits aren't just disruptive when he erupts, upset that Fuller slung him to the ground by reaching in, grabbing at the ball and yanking. No one walks more when they're supposed to jog and jogs more when they're supposed to run after the play than Bennett.

    Good for them. Never liked that dude, and that story from camp is pretty crazy.

    I'm sure there is more too it then just that. That stuff happens in TC all the time. This is probably the catalyst for a lot of other things that have been going on. Coaches don't like players who don't put out. That's just how it is.

    Good for the Bears. If he's acting like a giant baby because a teammate called him out for his lazy attitude then he deserves to be suspended for acting like a giant baby.

    If that's what happened then maybe Crybaby Bennett should focus more on hustling and less on being lazy and then he wouldn't get called out by his teammates.

    You're right had to be more. What happened didn't look that bad. He was pretty dismissive if it to media right after the practice too. There has to be a lot more.

    Any time a guy tells a reporter 'I can afford it' when asked about disciplinary action from the team, I'd take it as a personal invitation to find out whether or not he's telling the truth.

    Didn't catch that particular statement between the bleeps. May have been the catalyst.

    Yeah he was pretty dismissive from what I caught. I could see that being the nail in the coffin. I still think more will come out though. Seems step for throwing the player down and just that comment, I'd bet like someone else mentioned he may have been warned about this type of thing.

    I'm sure he's just a general pita. There's a reason an athlete that talented is on his third team.

    I wrote him off by his conduct on Hard Knocks as a rookie. Any player who rolls his eyes at his position coach like that for the cameras is a lost cause. That tells you all you need to know about the guy mentally. I wouldn't want him anywhere near my locker room.

    I don't blame you.

    I'd hoped he would mature and grow out of that but it's clear the guy is one of those who simply isn't going to do so. That was clear while he was still in Dallas.
