Martellus Bennett: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 months. In nine games last year, split between 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Per Mike Reiss of, 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Patriots' Martellus Bennett: Headed for IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (shoulder/hamstring) will be placed on injured reserve, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

Bennett was released by the Packers in early November amid a disagreement about how to deal with his shoulder injury. He seemingly wanted to have surgery, but then put it off once he was released and had the option of rejoining the Patriots. A subsequent hamstring injury will end Bennett's season after just two appearances in a New England uniform, and he'll presumably now have the surgery on his shoulder. He'll turn 31 in March and has already dropped hints that this could be his final season in the NFL. Dwayne Allen reclaims his role as the Patriots' No. 2 tight end.

Patriots' Martellus Bennett: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett (shoulder/hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

With Bennett sidelined, fellow tight end Dwayne Allen figures to see added work Sunday, with Jacob Hollister on hand in a reserve role. Neither are viable fantasy lineup options, however, as long as Rob Gronkowski remains healthy enough to log abundant snaps.
