Michael Bennett is a Super Bowl winning pass rusher of the Seattle Seahawks who has now become a free agent.

His brother Martellus is a tight end for the Chicago Bears and has been actively trying to recruit his older sibling to join him at Soldier Field.

The Bears are reportedly interest in the defensive end but it could come come down to who thet want more between the former Seahawk and Michael Johnson, a defensive end of the Cincinnati Bengals.

But Martellus made it clear which of the two he would prefer to become his new teammate in Chicago, a year after he joined the Bears as a free agent.

“The No. 1 thing is family,” Martellus said on NFL Network. “You’re going to get paid wherever you get paid, but to be able to play ... this is history. Two brothers — I don’t think there’s ever been two brothers that played on the same team.”

The younger Bennett is wrong in his statement - several brothers have played together in the NFL - but it didn't detract the tight end from his pitch.

“If the contract is not the numbers that you want, you got to think about the market and off the field,” Bennett went on to say. “We could do Doublemint commercials. Look at Duck Dynasty. Talk about the Black Duck Dynasty right now. Me and you, bro. So it’s just a lot of opportunity.

"Chicago is the best fans, unique city, great opportunities business-wise, which I know there’s a lot of things you want to do off the field after football. None of those things are tech or coffee, so, I mean, Seattle, that’s what they’re offering you. So come on down to Chicago, man."

The Black Duck Dynasty sounds amazing, and quite frankly it has to become a thing.

So Marc Tressman and Phil Emery, stop messing around and make it happen. The world needs it.
