Martellus Bennett Signs With New York Giants

The New York Giants have signed free-agent tight end Martellus Bennett, who spent the first four years of his NFL career with the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys. Adam Schefter tweets that Bennett has agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Giants.

There is, at least initially, some confusion regarding this since Bennett tweeted the news and then deleted the tweet. Schefter, however, has not backed off the report and Schefter's word is good enough for Pat Traina. So, it's good enough for me.

I am actually surprised that the Giants got Bennett for a one-year deal at a relatively low price. Former Seattle tight end John Carlson, a guy we thought might be a Giant target, got a five-year, $25-million deal from the Minnesota Vikings. Gotta give it up to Jerry Reese on that one.

Bennett caught 85 passes in four years with the Cowboys. The 6-foot-7, 248-pound Bennett was generally the backup to Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten.
