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.

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.
