Adam Schefter reports that the Patriots are finalizing a trade for Bears TE Martellus Bennett. According to Schefter, the teams are expected to swap "mid-to-late round picks." The move will save Chicago about $4 million under the cap in the final year on Bennett's current contract. Bennett will have trouble delivering consistent fantasy numbers in New England, but he's a strong addition for the Patriots passing game and can only help QB Tom Brady's fantasy value. The trade leaves Zach Miller as Chicago's top pass-catching TE and a potential top-12 contender at the position in fantasy.

The Patriots have released TE Martellus Bennett, saving $6.2 million against the 2018 cap. Bennett appeared in just 2 games for the Patriots before landing on IR this past season. That followed a failed 7-game stint with the Packers. He turns just 31 this month, though, and posted a 55-701-7 line in 2016. We'll see how much interest Bennett garners on the open market and where he eventually lands.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is active for tonight’s game against the Broncos. He’s been with the team for just 3 days but knows the offense after spending last season in New England.
