LOS ANGELES — Though we’d hardly call it a fair place for an interview, Seahawks Defensive End Michael Bennett did seem to have a few — very few — words to say about the Tom Brady Deflategate scandal.
Bennett was approached recently by a TMZ Sports photographer in the Los Angeles Airport. The photographer filmed the star defensive end as he muttered a few quick responses to the pointed questions.
Of interest, it appears that Bennett does believe Tom Brady cheated.
“Is Tom Brady a cheater?” the photographer asked.
“Yes,” Bennett responded, after thinking a moment. However, Bennett said Brady’s cheating did not affect the outcome of the AFC Championship Game, or the Super Bowl.
“He just won that game,” Bennett said about the Super Bowl. “He played a great game.”
The photographer hammered a number of other questions at Bennett, and we learn a thing or two about the star. Bennett’s favorite actor is Leonardo DiCaprio, and his favorite film staring the actor is “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.”
