DATELINE: Patriot Resurrection Possible
Martellus Bennett, the tight end who danced with the cheerleaders at the Super Bowl last season, and bailed out of the Patriots for Green Bay, is now available.
Is Bill Belichick interested? It may well be, based on Bill’s past history; he loves to resurrect the dead.
Martellus (Don’t Call Me Marty) Bennett has been a flop out there in Frost Bite Falls, and with no great QB (Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone) to sustain his antics, he may be ready for Tommy Time.
Poor Martellus has been bereft and without any TDs—or friends. He played seven lackluster games with the Cheese Packers. With some disagreement about his medical condition, and with a threat he will retire after eight more games, Bennett made himself available to other teams when Green Bay sent him packing.
He needs to reconnect with the Brady bunch to regain his equilibrium.
The sudden move reminds us of the strange situation with the Pittsburgh Steelers a few years back who released a certain player for the Patriots to pick up just in time for a playoff run.
Now, the dire need of another tight end could mean that Belichick is considering more reunions.
He just brought back Lazarus Brian Hoyer from the dead San Fran 49ers.
So, returning a Gronk complement from the Cheesey Green Bay team seems rather likely.
Can Danny Woodhead be far behind? Might Rob Ninkovitch come out of retirement?
Bennett, fan of sci-fi, author of a kid’s book before Julian Edelman, savant of nothing in particular, was a delight in the locker room for his teammates and a media darling.
Will Belichick take another oddball tight end to go with the masterpiece of TEs, Gronk? We hope so.
