Martellus returning for Giants?
By Tim Kavanagh
In his previous NFL experience with the Dallas Cowboys, TE Martellus Bennett was more renowned for his off-field persona that emerged in comments and blog posts, as he never converted his talent into on-field production within Tony Romo's offense. In four seasons, he managed just 85 receptions for 846 yards and four TDs total; after signing with the New York Giants for 2012, he caught 55 passes for 626 yards and five scores. It appears the Giants' offense is a good fit for him, so will he be back for another season?
According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com, that's something to which the Giants are certainly amenable:
Ohm YoungmisukGiants positional analysis: Tight end
"The Giants want Bennett back. He should only get better with another season under his belt in the Giants offense with Eli Manning. If they are unable to re-sign Bennett, the Giants will likely have to search for another tight end. Bennett should be one of the Giants' priorities among their own free agents."
