Martellus Bennett only made it through two games with the Patriots after he was signed last season. The Patriots will now have $23 million in cap space once it is official. Bennett can renegotiate for less but it is more likely that Bill Belichick is thinking about spending that money on protecting Brady and fixing the defense. The Patriots still need to sign Nate Solder and may also turn their attention to Richard Sherman who it appears will be released by Seattle later today.
More Bennett brothers news today: the Patriots are releasing TE Martellus Bennett, per league source.
