Martellus Bennett's first training camp with the Packers is off to an unusual start. Looking for a place to spend the night, he checked into the place where he'd be lacing up his cleats during home games this season: the Lambeau Field locker room.

He now lives in Chicago and posted on Instagram that he wanted to tuck his daughter into bed before leaving saying "I will always be a father first".

"I hope there aren't any ghosts hiding with the Packers though 'cause if there are some ghosts that are going to come out in this locker room I need to get out of here", Bennett said in the video. "Camp life, Day 1. I like to sleep on the floor from time to time".

And so it was that Bennett found himself locked out of the entrance to his dorm at St. Norbert College.

Bennett, 30, will be entering his first season with Green Bay after previous stints with the Cowboys, Giants, Bears, and Patriots.

"I usually like the metaphorical cheese that goes in my pocket, but the cheese that goes on my head works as well", Bennett said. via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.

"Sleeping on the floor doesn't bother me", Bennett said, via Sports Illustrated's Scooby Axson. "Sleeping on the floor actually doesn't bother me, I actually like to sleep on the floor from time to time. Honestly. I should've told somebody I'd be getting in late tonight".
