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

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

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."

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bears are fielding trade offers for tight end Martellus Bennett, who has not participated in any team activities this spring in the hopes of getting a new contract. 

Bennett has no guaranteed money left on the contract he signed with Chicago in 2013 and after a campaign in which he had career-highs in catches (90), yards (916) and touchdowns (5), he is in search of a new deal.

Bears' Bennett: Trestman will be 'excellent coordinator' for Ravens
by Michael Hurcomb |

Marc Trestman lasted only two seasons as the Bears coach before losing his job. Bears tight end Martellus Bennett said on NFL Network on Friday that Trestman's demise in Chicago was plagued by his inability to control a locker room full of personalities.

"Trestman, I think, first off, the issue that he had, probably, was managing us all, all the different personalities," Bennett said. "There's a lot of big personalities (in the locker room). And I think, for a first-time head coach in the NFL, dealing with all the personalities that you have, I think that's hard when you got guys like me, you know, (Brandon) Marshall ... Lance Briggs on defense, (Charles) Tillman.

"There's so many guys with such outgoing personalities that managing those guys and bringing them all together is what a leader needs to do, you know? And that's one of the toughest things."

Although Trestman was fired in late December, he wasn't out of work for long, landing the job as the Ravens offensive coordinator after Gary Kubiak left to become the Broncos coach. Bennett believes Trestman will have success in his new role.

"Calling plays, he was excellent," Bennett said. "I think he's going to be an excellent coordinator for the Ravens.  Strategically, he was great. But on the field, guys just weren't executing.

"A lot of it comes back to the player preparation. If you're not preparing to a high level, then the coaches can only do so much; the game's not played on paper, it's played on grass. On paper, we look great. On grass, we looked bad."
