    Former Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett was a fan favorite while he was roaming Soldier Field, and although he will do so again this season while wearing Green Bay Packers colors, he still has a good heart.

    After seeing the letter, Bennett took it upon himself to make sure that the family was able to get the royal treatment when they made it to Packers camp:

    Bennett will make his Packers debut on Thursday night when the team welcomes the Philadelphia Eagles to Lambeau Field. He will return to Soldier Field on Nov. 12 as the teams do battle on the lakefront.
