Bennett Wants $9 Million In Free Agency

With the “legal tampering” period in full effect and the league’s free agency period looming just around the corner, Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network has reported that New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is looking for quite the raise next season.

After making just a bit over $5 million last season, it appears the veteran tight end is seeking a deal that will pay him at least $9 million dollars a season.

While Bennett and the Pats still have some level of mutual interest in working out a deal, the Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe doesn’t see the Pats coming close to that type of dollar figure for the big-bodied pass catcher.

With the Pats unlikely to offer that type of deal to Bennett, it appears the tight end will have a new home in 2017.

In ones season in New England, Bennett showed his toughness not missing a game while playing with multiple injuries. He also had a career-high seven touchdowns, catching 55 passes for 701 yards.
