Bears TE Martellus Bennett voices views on contract dispute
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has reported to mandatory minicamp, but he has not forgotten about the issues that motivated him to stay away from voluntary practices.

Bennett has been embroiled in a contract dispute with the team. And he has a message for those complaining that he is not honoring his current deal.

"Most people don't honor their damn phone contracts," he told the team's radio network. "They just switch from Sprint to T-Mobile one year into it ... If you're playing at a high level then you want to be compensated for the level that you're playing."

Bennett has indeed taking huge steps forward over the last three seasons. He peaked in 2014 with 90 catches for 916 yards and six touchdowns in earning a Pro Bowl spot.

Fox unsure if Bears TE Martellus Bennett will be at minicamp
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

John Fox is skeptical about the possibility of Bears tight end Martellus Bennett reporting to the mandatory three-day minicamp next week.

Bennett skipped the voluntary practices over a contract dispute, but he can be fined if he continues his absence. That doesn't make Fox any more optimistic.

"Don't know that," Fox told ESPN when asked if he expects Bennett to be present. "Again, it's a different implication on mandatory minicamp. But we'll wait and see."

Bennett, who gained a Pro Bowl spot last year, is seeking a raise from the $4.9 million base salary he is set to earn this season. He has two years remaining on a four-year contract.

John Fox: Bears don't expect to trade Martellus Bennett during draft
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett skipped a voluntary minicamp earlier this week, leading to reports that the team had placed him on the trading block. 

Coach John Fox said that he expected Bennett to still be on the Bears' roster when the draft ended on Saturday, per ChicagoFootball.com

Despite that vote of confidence, Fox made it clear he wasn't happy with Bennett's decision to sit out the camp. 

"You know, again, I've talked to him, I know where he is, and like I said yesterday, with anyone who isn't here, I'd prefer they be here, but he's part of our football team and we'll leave it at that," Fox said.

When asked if he considered Bennett a part of Chicago's long-term plans, Fox said, "That's a tough question to answer on anybody. I don't know yet. We're just evaulating practice ... and this is our first opportunity this week."
