Martellus Bennett busts on ex-teammate Tony Romo

Martellus Bennett apparently loves to tell a good Tony Romo joke.

The New York Giants tight end made an appearance Wednesday on "Good Morning New York" on WNYW-TV to talk football and practice his short-range catching ability. When co-host Dave Price threw a football that bounced short of his intended target across the set, it reminded Bennett of his former teammate.

"Kinda looked like Tony Romo throwing that ball," Bennett said, via LarryBrownSports.com.

He repeated himself when asked to clarify.

Bennett is in the midst of a career year after four disappointing seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. That's why no one in Dallas wants to hear a word from Bennett, who has 25 receptions with a career-high 305 yards and three touchdowns so far in 2012.

Bennett has had his own beef with Romo over the years. He wanted Jon Kitna to start in 2011. He has made other remarks about Romo since changing teams.

Things didn't work out for Bennett in Dallas, and Romo certainly wasn't the root of all his problems. But the Cowboys host the Giants this week, so it's a good time for a little trash talk. Because, you know, Giants-Cowboys never has enough juice on its own.
