Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Not the best of news as Bennett's status is trending in the wrong direction after practicing Wednesday. On top of that, Bennett only has 9 catches for 72 yards and 1 TD over his past 3 games. so see what the TE can do Friday and go from there.

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) left the locker room with ice on his right shoulder following the Week 2 game. He said it might be an issue this week.
Huddle Up: He played well after he was injured, catching the game-winning touchdown to boot. Monitor his situation this week, though. Danny Amendola played through his injury and now could be out for a while.

The Chicago Bears signed TE Martellus Bennett (Giants) Tuesday, Mar. 12. Bennett received a 4-year deal but the financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: QB Jay Cutler will now have a TE added to his arsenal after the Bears struggled with the likes of Kellen Davis and Matt Spaeth at the position last year. Bennett enjoyed a breakout season (66-526-5) in his lone campaign with the Giants, and has the potential to produce even bigger numbers in Chicago, where the passing game was strictly a one-man show with WR Brandon Marshall a season ago.

The New York Giants appear to be making a late push to re-sign impending free-agent TE Martellus Bennett before the market is set to open Tuesday, March 12. The two sides have talked in the past few days, and according to a source, plan to talk more before the deadline. However, there is no indication that an agreement is close.
Huddle Up: Bennett had a solid season for the Giants in 2012, and the smart move would be to lock him up before he hits free agency as there are several teams--the Bucs and Bears among them--looking for tight end help.

While the New York Giants want impending free-agent TE Martellus Bennett back, they will not get into a bidding war with another suitor. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are reportedly hot on Bennett's trail if he hits the open market.
Huddle Up: The Bucs' interest makes sense, as their OC is former Giants' quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan. If the Giants don't retain Bennett, they could be a first-round suitor for Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert.
