Report: Chicago Bears to Sign TE Martellus Bennett

The Chicago Bears will sign veteran tight end Martellus Bennett this evening, according to multiple sources.

Bennett, 26, had 55 catches for 626 yards and five touchdowns with the New York Giants last year. At 6-6 and 265 pounds, he gives Jay Cutler another big weapon in the passing game. He was targeting 90 times by the Giants last season.

After four years playing a reserve roll behind Jason Witten in Dallas, Bennett had a break-thru season with the Giants. He has 140 career receptions for 1,472 yards and nine touchdowns.
