It's a simple plan for Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett. He's ready to ... uh ... um ...
"Can I say kick ---? I'm ready to kick ---!"
That was his answer to reporters Monday at a charity event at Six Flags when they asked him how he felt about the NFL getting back to business.

He's in shape, but he wants to be in football shape. The solo workouts and informal team workouts helped, but they didn't get him in football shape, he said.
