Patriots cut Bennett | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Broncos. He passed his physical and put in a limited practice on Friday — less than 24 hours after joining the team. Bennett, of course, is familiar with this offense after spending last season in New England. He might be active on Sunday night, but we wouldn’t mess with Bennett in Week 10 fantasy lineups.
