Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett and CB Kyle Fuller were involved in a heated physical altercation during a red zone drill in practice Monday, Aug. 4.

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."
