SAN DIEGO – It had been too long since Martellus Bennett got to dance in the end zone.
Marty B went with a Wiz Khalifa-inspired move when he got in the end zone Saturday night. His touchdown dance was borrowed from the rapper’s video I’m Rolling.
“It felt good,” Bennett said. “Hopefully I get to bust it out a lot more this year.”
Bennett didn’t get to dance at all last season. He failed to score a touchdown, a huge disappointment after the hype built by his outstanding training camp.
His 19-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter from Jon Kitna served as a reminder of Bennett’s immense talent. He went over two Chargers defenders to grab the out route and turned to score after landing.
Bennett enjoyed the moment, but he isn’t getting carried away because he caught a touchdown pass in the preseason.
“The season is what matters,” he said.
We’ll see whether Marty B can keep it rolling then.
