Maybe NFL players are more like us than we think. New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett just couldn't stop talking about bacon -- yes, bacon -- while answering questions at his locker Thursday.

Bennett goes from talking about Canadian bacon to crispy bacon to American bacon. The man loves bacon.

Sorry @jeffphowe but you are WAY OFF on your @MartysaurusRex "bacon" count.
You said 17 but I count 32!! #Patriots #wbz #seriousjournalism pic.twitter.com/670jfnXyVF
