Martel­lus Ben­nett, Green Bay Pack­ers

Who can re­sist a 6-feet

6-inch, 275-pound man with a pen­chant for in­spir­ing kids? We'd like to give new Pack­ers tight end Martel­lus Ben­nett a col­lec­tive fist bump. Yes, he's ex­pected to make ma­jor on-field con­tri­bu­tions. But off the field, he marches to the beat of his own whim­si­cal drum. At one of his first prac­tices, Ben­nett doled out copies of his new comic book “Towel Boy” and re­vealed plans for a team book club. He op­er­ates a side busi­ness called Imag­i­na­tion Agency that in­spires cre­ativ­ity in chil­dren, and he wants to pro­duce an­i­mated films when his foot­ball days are over. De­scribed as the “cre­ative direc­tor of awe­some­ness” on his Twit­ter pro­file, Ben­nett's tweets run from charm­ingly de­scrip­tive to in­tensely re­flec­tive.
