CHICAGO, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- NFL Brothers Michael and Martellus Bennett were unfiltered recently when speaking to ESPN's Mina Kimes.

Shockingly, they held nothing back when it came to each other's current and former teammates.


Last August, Michael Bennett went on a radio show to criticize quarterbacks for being overpaid. On Wednesday he had just one quarterback in his sights, and the Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman wasn't trying to sack him.

"Worst quarterback in the NFL," Michael said of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

"I'd be open and he'd throw into double coverage," Martellus told Kimes.

Martellus played three seasons with the Bears from 2013 through last season. He caught 14 touchdown passes as a member of the Bears.

The tight end is set to play for the New England Patriots this season, lining up in a super-sized package with Rob Gronkowski.

Cutler completed 311-of-483 passes for 3,659 yards, 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions last season. He threw for a league-high 18 interceptions in 2014. He also responded to Bennett's comments Wednesday at camp.

"Most receivers and tight ends (think they) are always open," Cutler told reporters, according to the Chicago Tribune. "Hopefully Tom (Brady) can do a better job of finding him than I did."


On Saturday Michael Bennett made news for calling out Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton for being a guy who was "sitting back just taking the dollars" when it came to influencing social change. He later apologized for his comments.
