It was announced Tuesday that Chicago Bears tight end, Martellus Bennett, has been suspended indefinitely after picking a fight with first-round draft pick, Kyle Fuller. Fuller's attempt to strip the ball from Bennett ended in a choke slam and a face full of grass. Getting suspended for a fight during practice has raised some eyebrows.

After practice Monday, Bennett told reporters, "I come to training camp for one reason and that's to prepare to win a championship. 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."

On top of the harsh punishment, the Bears have also fined Bennett an undisclosed amount.
