Bears Sign Tight End Martellus Bennett

Bears Sign Tight End Martellus Bennett

The Chicago Bears began the 2013 NFL free agency period by addressing one of their biggest needs – the tight end position.  Since trading away Greg Olsen in 2011, the Bears have been unable to field a tight and that can contribute in the passing game. Enter Martellus Bennett.  Last season for the Giants, Bennett racked up 55 receptions for 626 yards and 5 touchdowns.
