The Patriots have many things to think about when it comes to their tight ends with Rob Gronkowski’s future still in question. One of those questions could be answered in the next few weeks.
Martellus Bennett wants to continue playing despite contemplating retirement after the 2017 season, according to Ian Rapoport. The Patriots tight end joined the team after he had issues in Green Bay, but was only able to play in two games before he was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring and shoulder injury.
Despite publicly contemplating retirement last season, #Patriots TE Martellus Bennett does want to continue playing, I’m told. He’s due a $2M roster bonus on March 14, so New England has a decision… but his $6.2M cap hit isn’t bad.
