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.

New York Giants impending free-agent TE Martellus Bennett, impending free-agent OT William Beatty and impending free-agent SS Kenny Phillips could be options to receive the franchise tag this offseason.
Huddle Up: Bennett had a breakout first season with the G Men, hauling in 55 passes for 626 yards and 5 TDs, but was that impressive enough to earn a tag? It's only one of the many pressing free-agency questions the Giants will be juggling this offseason.

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner both believe a big, athletic tight end can be very productive in the offense. The team is looking for depth at the position, with only TE Jordan Cameron under contract in 2013. The top free-agent on the market is expected to be TE Martellus Bennett (Giants), unless he is retained by the team before free agency opens March 12.
Huddle Up: The Browns do need a TE but likely will have to look elsewhere than Bennett, who had a breakout debut (55-626-5) with the Giants in 2012.
