“I feel at this point in my career if my teammates asked me to do something and I can do it,” Bennett told Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I know people want make it what it what they want to. I don’t know what to tell them.”

“This is doesn’t take away what I have done . . . and the stances that I took, the death threats I have had on my life.

I have always stood on what I have believed in every single situation whether it’s with Donald Trump, whether it was with the police, whether it was with police brutality, how women of color have been treated, how much money I have donated to different things, the causes I have stood up with, the people I have stood with. It doesn’t make me less of a person.”
