    Things are getting heated in NFL training camps this summer. Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has been suspended and fined after slamming first-round draft pick Kyle Fuller to the ground. Fuller had tried to strip the ball away from Bennett but had instead hooked his shoulder pads, taking him to the ground. That apparently did not sit well with Bennett, and video shows him immediately jumping up and slamming the rookie into the ground. “I come to training camp for one reason and that’s to prepare to win a championship,” Bennett later told ESPN. “I play hard and go hard every single day. I’m probably one of the most violent people on the field. That’s just my style of play. I’m going to continue to play the same way I always play. That’s what I’m here for.”
