Martellus Bennett Fantasy Outlook After Patriots Claim TE

Martellus Bennett Fantasy Outlook After Patriots Claim TE

That deal contained a signing bonus of $6.3m, of which Bennett was to receive $2.1m at the beginning of each season.

There's also a possibility that Bennett hangs up his cleats after this season.

And now that Gronkowski is healthy, it's hard to envision a reoccurrence of the 77.6 percent snap rate Bennett enjoyed last season, even if the Patriots roll out more two-tight end sets upon his arrival.

Bennett finished his time at the Packers with just 233 yards and no touchdowns off 24 catches.

The Packers waived Bennett with a "failure to diagnose physical condition" designation, and the Patriots, who were among the lowest in the pecking order, snagged him. In November, Blount walked off the field early during a Steelers game in which he did not receive a carry, and the team quickly released him.

During the Packers' bye week, Bennett said on social media that he was "pretty sure" he would retire after this season, then was sidelined with a shoulder injury following the first practice after the bye.

Bennett served as a solid replacement for Rob Gronkowski after he suffered a season-ending back injury in Week 12 of previous year.

Known for an unusually diverse array of interests, Bennett is a children's book author and has a company, The Imagination Agency, that describes itself as "a wondrous group of monsters and imaginary friends tasked with creating, drawing, writing and imaginating fantastical adventures for kids all over the world".

Original story: The Green Bay Packers have dumped former Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett, according to a report.

Bennett is not Gronkowski, but the Patriots proved they could win a Super Bowl without Gronk and with Marty last season. Appearing in 142 career regular-season games as a National Football League tight end, Bennett has tallied 437 receptions - on 638 targets - for 4,520 yards and 30 touchdowns.
