Martellus Bennett made a young Packer fan's dream come true Monday after seeing a tweet from the young girl's father.
Jim Love tweeted at Bennett explaining that although he's a Vikings fan, his young daughter is a diehard Packers fan because of his wife. The family was heading to Green Bay Friday to attend Packers Family Night when some unfortunate circumstances struck: their flight from New York to Milwaukee was canceled due to weather.
The earliest they could get to Wisconsin was Sunday, according to his tweet.

Swallowing his Vikings pride, Love reached out to the Packers and asked if his daughter could attend camp Monday as a guest of a player, or get a tour. Bennett saw the tweet and went one step further.
I'll hook you up on Monday. I'm not sure if practice will still be open but if it is I gotcha. If not we can grab a bite together. https://t.co/CqhuxUdaFX

Jim explained on Twitter that his five-year-old daughter would be at practice with her cousin and both would be waiting in the bike line.
Bennett delivered on his promise, choosing to ride the young girl's and her cousin's bike!

Father to father is all good bro. Glad we got to make her dream come true. Now we need you to wear a @packers jersey to the Vikings game. https://t.co/r5r7WhsJMw

On and off the field, Bennett is certainly impressing in green and gold.
