 Draft Scout *Martellus Bennett News
03/16/16 - TE Martellus Bennett was acquired by the Patriots from the Chicago Bears in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick and a sixth-round pick, multiple media outlets reported. If Bennett can have the type of season he had in 2014, he and Rob Gronkowski would give the Patriots a strong pair of play-making tight ends. It might resemble the tight end combination the Patriots had when Aaron Hernandez and Gronkowski played together. Bennett, 29, was limited to 11 games last season because of injuries, finishing with 53 receptions for 439 yards and three touchdowns. He had 90 receptions in 2014, when he was named to the Pro Bowl In 2014, however, Bennett was named to the Pro Bowl after catching 90 passes for 916 yards and six touchdowns. Bennett is signed through the 2016 season and is scheduled to earn $5.085 million in base salary.
03/16/16 - The New England Patriots added yet another downfield weapon for quarterback Tom Brady by acquiring tight end Martellus Bennett from the Chicago Bears. Chicago announced the deal Thursday after reports surfaced about the potential trade Wednesday. The Bears will receive fourth- and sixth-round picks in next month's NFL Draft in exchange for Bennett, who caught 208 passes for 2,114 yards and 14 touchdowns in 43 games over three seasons for Chicago. In New England, Bennett joins an offense that already includes All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. However, there was little proven depth behind Gronkowski after veteran Scott Chandler had his contract terminated earlier this month. Michael Williams, with three receptions, was the only other tight end on the roster who had a catch in 2015. Bennett, who turned 29 on March 10, is a 6-foot-6, 273-pound receiving tight end who has 19 touchdowns over his past four seasons. He missed five games last season and finished the year on injured reserve due to injured ribs, finishing with 53 catches for 439 yards and three touchdowns. Bennett is signed through the 2016 season and is scheduled to earn $5.085 million in base salary. The Bears gained the No. 127 and No. 204 overall picks in the 2016 NFL Draft, and re-signed tight end Zach Miller, who is coming off a career year with 34 catches for 439 yards and five touchdowns in his first season in Chicago.
12/08/15 - TE Martellus Bennett (ribs) was placed on reserve/injured by the Bears Tuesday (Dec. 8).
12/07/15 - TE Martellus Bennett left the 49ers game but returned. It was unclear whether it was related to the rib injury he had sustained the previous week.
12/03/15 - TE Martellus Bennett (ribs) went through a full practice for the second straight day after missing the Green Bay game. He is expected to be available to play against San Francisco. The Chicago Tribune reported Bennett had expressed frustration during practice prior to the Green Bay game over his lack of a role in the red zone. Bennett had played the entire win over Denver but turned up on the injury report the Monday before the Thursday night game at Green Bay. Bennett on Wednesday in the Bears locker room said he had "a pretty significant injury" in the Denver game and the fact he played the entire game meant nothing. "I play every snap of most games," he said. Bennett did say he did not watch the Bears-Packers game live on television on Thanksgiving. "I watched it on tape," he said. "It's hard to watch the games when you're not playing in them. Once they uploaded all the film, I just watched the film. "My wife watched the game. I heard a lot of jumping up and down and a lot of stuff like that. So, I felt like I was watching it because you could hear it all through the house. She texted me all what was going on and everything." Asked what he did while his family watched the game, Bennett said, "I was just chilling, rehabbing. There were a lot of people in town working on my body and stuff like that. So all last week and leading into this week the whole thing was just getting healthy." Bennett has a year left on his contract at about $5.1 million and last offseason did not participate in the team's non-mandatory workouts. He wanted a new contract with two years to play on his deal. Bennett's role in the offense seems to have been reduced with the emergence of Zach Miller as a receiver.
