Draft Scout *Martellus Bennett News
12/29/14 - TE Martellus Bennett wound up with a team tight-end record of 90 catches. He had 916 yards and a personal high of six TD catches.
12/02/14 - TE Martellus Bennett goes up against the team he started out with when the Bears face Dallas, and in three previous matchups (one with the Bears, two with the Giants) he hasn't had a huge game against them, combining for 13 catches for 112 yards with a touchdown.
Bennett said he didn't have the greatest relationship with Cowboys tight end Jason Witten while playing behind him, but not because it was anything personal. It was more a case of not getting enough playing time due to Witten's excellence, but Bennett put usual unique spin on it.
"Every single year there's a lion coming out of college, you know what I'm saying?" he said. "And every single year there's an old buck in the NFL who's a gazelle. And every single morning the gazelle wakes up because the gazelle has to run, otherwise the lion catches it. So every single morning the lion wakes up, he chases the gazelle.
"In that situation I was the lion. I didn't catch the gazelle, though -- I had to go to another jungle."
12/01/14 - TE Martellus Bennett practiced on a limited basis due to a foot injury and is day to day.
