In a note addressed Dear World that Bennett posted on social media Wednesday, he said officers singled me out and pointed their guns at me for doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time following the Aug. 26 mega-fight at T-Mobile Arena.

Bennett said he was leaving the arena to return to his hotel when he and several hundred others in the area heard what sounded like gunshots and began to run for safety. He said a police officer in the area stopped him and ordered him to get on the ground, then put a gun to his head and explicitly threatened to shoot him if he moved. Bennett said a second officer then forcefully jammed his knee into my back as they handcuffed him.

On learning a new defense and being ready for Week 1: I’m just trying to get the terminology. When they’re making those play calls, I’m just trying to see what I would do. Putting myself in position if I was out on the field when they’re making those calls. Just getting the terminology, the checks and all that stuff down.

I don’t think (it will take much time to get caught up). Like I said before, I played in a similar scheme with this twice before. I had coach Ray Horton as our defensive coordinator. It’s just a little bit different terminology, but I should be able to get it.
