The Packers signed TE Martellus Bennett to a multi-year deal. It's the 1st unrestricted free agent from another team the Packers have inked since 2012. Bennett, who turned 30 today, finished 10th among TEs in PPR points last year -- despite battling ankle and shoulder injuries. It was his 4th top-12 finish in the past 5 seasons. Bennett joins a loaded pass-catching corps in Green Bay, but Aaron Rodgers' efficiency means there are fantasy points to go around for everyone. Bennett will sit safely inside TE1 territory in the 2017 fantasy rankings.
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.
The Patriots have placed TE Martellus Bennett on IR. He played just 2 games for New England after getting cut by the Packers earlier this month. Bennett is actually under contract through 2018, but it's unclear if the Patriots will want him back.

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. Bennett is just a fantasy flier tonight, but we’re curious to see how involved he is in the passing game.
