Martellus Bennett

The third year tight end from Texas A&M has never lived up to his second round pick stature. This year, Bennett has recorded a measly five catches for 41 yards. This after being injured early on in the season. And a tipped pass that turned into a Philadelphia Eagles interception last week was the final straw for many Cowboy fans.

But according to Head Coach Jason Garrett, Bennett’s blocking skills could keep him around a little longer regardless of his lack of offensive production:

“Well, Martellus is not a guy that you would say we feature in the offense. There are certain things that we think he does well that we want to give him a chance to do during the ballgame.”

If Bennett were to be released, Washington is a perfect place for him to fall. With TE Chris Cooley out for the year due to injury, Bennett would fill his spot nicely. That, in itself, may be a good enough reason to keep him on the team. But only until year’s end, when his contract is up.
