Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has sweet-talked the media since arriving in Chicago. Here are his best quotes since joining the Bears.

"I'm an imagineer and I'm a philosophifier; that's not a word but should be. I like to philosophify about things and some things should be philosophified about, like cupcakes and things that really don't matter. … My fun is different from most people's fun. I'm not dancing in the club or popping bottles or anything. The most I pop open is a book."

"I'm deeper than I look. I should walk around with a 'no diving' sign on."

"Bears is one of my favorite animals after dinosaurs. I don't think there are any dinosaurs in the NFL so Bears is a great thing to be."

"I move like a butterfly and I sting like a bee. I'm a little bit of both. I like to be the butterfly because sometimes you've got to spread your wings. Ever try to catch a butterfly with your hands? You can't do it. You need a net. They got butterfly nets made just for catching butterflies. Hopefully they don't make a unicorn net just for catching unicorns out there, especially black ones."

"I'm solar-powered so I like the sun. … I just feel like a better person when the sun is on my back."

"Even when I'm sick, I'm happy. I can't help it. … When you smile, you don't wrinkle as fast. I'm thinking about tomorrow today. So when I'm 40, I'm going to have the same pretty face. I just like to be happy all the time. Even when I'm in meetings I'm happy and smiling."
