Martellus Bennett drew his first political cartoon referencing the NFL

Martellus Bennett may have a great career after football, by drawing comics.  The Green Bay Packers tight end drew a cartoon and it is powerful. Martellus joins his brother Michael by showing support after the crazy incidents that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend.

Martellus’ brother Michael will continue to sit for the National Anthem, and said it would not change the NFL’s outlook until a white player stood up.

“It would take a white player to really get things changed, because when somebody from the other side understands and they step up and they speak up about it … it would change the whole conversation,” Bennett said on ESPN’s SC6.

“Because when you bring somebody who doesn’t have to be a part of [the] conversation making himself vulnerable in front of it, I think when that happens, things will really take a jump.”

This week Chris Long, the white defensive end of the Philadelphia Eagles stood up and put his arm around Malcolm Jenkins who stood with his fist raised high.  Tonight the Seahawks and Michael will play the Vikings in Seattle.  Could we see something like never before tonight?
