What do you guys think about bringing in The Black Unicorn's brother?

Statistically he's been a top 10 4-3 DE for the past two seasons.

He great against the run and can also rush the passer really well.

The problem is he is a RFA, so if we make him an offer the Bucs could match it if they want him back.

I seem to remember Marty saying he wanted to reach out to Mike and bring him into the fold at a good rate for us.

Bennett is an unrestricted free agent.

He was restricted last season

It would be a solid signing for sure.

How much would he ask for per year? I bet TB throws a ton of money at him.

As long as they sign Martellus that's fine

He destroyed Romo this year so yup that would work for me.

Man, he laid a hit on Tony Romo in their first game, I didn't think he would EVER get back into. That was easily one of the worst hits I've seen a QB take.

It sounds good but how are we going to afford a FA signing considering our cap situation?

Thanks! I hate the military network sometimes! Hopefully this video loads..


...well if finally loaded, that was a sick hit!

The guy is a hybrid de/dt. He'd be good at spelling Tuck when he gets winded. And from the sounds of Tuck, that might be more often than we want. Great bull rushing defensive end. Awesome pass rushing defensive tackle on passing situations. Wouldn't want him out there to defend the run.

Solid number three or four defensive end. The money needs to warrant that.

The Giants probably won't keep the Black Unicorn......why would they want his brother? Of course if both accept at or near the veteran minimum, they might meet signed by Reese.

Why wouldn't we keep Black Unicorn, who do we have that is better? Are we going to draft another TE with one of our 100 picks?

The "black unicorn" (anyone who makes up his own nickname is a head case) just isn't that good. If he agrees to sign at or near the veteran minimum, then he has a shot to stay.

Please, we can get a TE in the draft, and it will be Adrien Robinson's second season, there is no reason to overpay for a so-so TE like Bennett.

Great job replying two different times lol. If they were so high on Adrien Robinson, why did he not play at all this season? Like I just said, everyone expects us to draft a new team this year.. you know we have a limited number of picks rights?

If Bennett was any good, why did Dallas let him walk?

What's even more amazing is that he got through when the bucs rushed 3. He'd fit in PF's scheme all right!

I cant lie, the thought of both Bennett Brothers in our team would be pretty awesome. I hope to see Martellus back, he's a great fit. Michael looks like a pretty good fit for us, he can play two positions (end and tackle) which Reese and the coaching staff really like.

Not only that, If you had Mike and JPP starting on opposite sides, you just can't double both of them. Someone would get through. At least if PF is smart enough to realize that the TE and RB are being used in max protect and sends a linebacker every now and then...

i don't even want bennett back, he's an average tight end.

bear pascoe is a better blocker

No he isnt. Bennett is a much better blocker. And he was new to the system as far as a receiver goes.

Bennett had by far the best season of any TE in the first year of gilbrides system.

He never came off as a smart guy, at least to me, but he sure developed a nice grasp of our system, which was evident in only his first few weeks here.

See now this is a solution to D line, get in FA, all these people wanting to draft one when we have other needs for draft. And for all those who dont like Martellus, I bet they like Beckum too

Then Michael Bennett will get a huge contract or get franchise tagged.... Dont find pass rushers cheap.

What games have you been watching? Calling Bennett average but saying Pascoe is better makes no sense. Bennett is hands down better than Pascoe. He's a better blocker and a much better reciever. I certainly would like to know your thoughts on Beckum.
