  • Martellus Bennett: Plans to stay retired

    Bennett said he doesn't plan to come out of retirement, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Bennett hinted at a return to football after his brother was traded to the Patriots, but he's now making it clear that his focus is on his company, The Imagination Agency. The 32-year-old tight end struggled with injuries in 2017 and didn't play in 2018.

  • Martellus Bennett: Interested in New England

    Bennett is interested in coming out of retirement to play with his brother for the Patriots, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Bennett was released by New England almost exactly a year ago and announced his retirement shortly thereafter. His interest in playing football seems to have been rekindled by the knowledge that his former team is working out a trade to acquire his older brother -- 33-year-old defensive end Michael Bennett -- from the Eagles. Martellus will celebrate his 32nd birthday over the weekend, having last played football in Nov. 2017.

  • Martellus Bennett: Announces retirement

    Bennett announced his retirement via his personal Twitter account on Friday.

    Bennett made comments hinting at his retirement during the 2017 season and had been mulling the decision over the past couple of months. In nine games last season with the Packers and Patriots, the tight end recorded 286 yards on 30 catches. He bounced between the Cowboys, Giants, Bears, Patriots and Packers over the course of his 10-year career, totaling 4,573 yards and 30 touchdowns on 433 receptions.

  • Martellus Bennett: Won't be retained by New England

    The Patriots informed Bennett on Wednesday that he would be released, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, the move frees up approximately $6 million in salary-cap space for the team in advance of free agency. Bennett, who turns 31 on March 10, began the 2017 campaign with Green Bay, hauling in 24 passes for 233 yards in seven games before being waived in November with a "Failure to Disclose Physical Condition" designation. The Patriots, with whom Bennett found success in 2016, subsequently claimed the tight end off waivers, but he caught just six passes in two outings before landing on injured reserve with rotator cuff and hamstring issues. Assuming he wants to play in 2018, Bennett should draw some interest if he proves to suitors that he's healthy. Moreover, if Rob Gronkowski is seriously pondering retirement, it's possible that Bennett could return to New England on a team-friendly deal.

  • Patriots' Martellus Bennett: Hopes to play in 2018

    Bennett (shoulder) wants to return to the football field for the 2018 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Bennett indicated plans to retire before being waived by the Packers in November, and subsequently claimed by the Patriots. The 30-year-old appeared in only two games for New England before landing on injured reserve, and is due a two million dollar roster bonus March 14, which makes him a potential cap casualty.
