If you find yourself in need of a real-life superhero, apparently you can call on New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett

The man has a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Though Cowboys fans have to wonder where this particular guy was last season. 

The man who bumbled in Dallas is catching pretty much everything on and off the field in New York. USA Today reports the tight end managed to catch a man who fell roughly 15 feet after Sunday's win over the Packers. 

The 25-year-old, who caught all of four touchdowns while in Dallas for four seasons, was tossing some gear to Giants fans on Sunday. That's when he noticed a man about to take quite the tumble. 

We will go ahead and let Bennett explain the rest. 

I was doing what I usually do, moseying to the locker room and meandering around. Naturally, I just wanted to step back, but I did the righteous thing and I stepped up. I caught him, I saved his life. I tapped into my inner superhero, which I do have.

I'm usually a ninja, but my Spidey-senses told me he was going to take a fall, so I saved his life. He owes me his firstborn or something. Actually, I don't want that. Maybe a sandwich or something.

Bennett proved fairly useful, saving lives and reeling in passes in a thorough whipping of the Green Bay Packers. 

The tight end caught three passes for 44 yards in a Giants win, 38-10. 

The anonymous man wasn't granted the opportunity to thank his lifesaver, as he was quickly taken into custody by New Jersey state troopers for undisclosed charges. 

When asked about his gentleman in distress being arrested, Bennett offered, "That sucks."

What doesn't suck is Bennett, who is catching passes, scoring touchdowns and saving falling fans while wearing a Giants uniform.
