  • Martellus bennett officially down to 275 pounds now

    [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SPJN7-E5Ac&feature=relmfu[/link]

    I wasn't a huge fan of this guy based on his reputation of bad character, that stuff on hard knocks, and underachieving in 2009 when the cowboys intended a larger role for him on offense

    but it seems, according to that video, this dude is really busting his *** off. He looks very determined to have the year of his career. That video is highly recommended for anyone who still has any qualms about him after he ballooned to 296 pounds (according to what the trainer said) because of the hamstring injury, weight lifting, and eating.

    again.. highly recommend anyone watching that. its rather long, but its very informative and I enjoyed it. He worked a ton of catching drills too... definitely helps him in the receiving game to some extent

    Thanks for posting. Didn't watch all 30min but saw enough. I wad stoked when we signed this dude. He is going to be a beast. 1 year contract with all that athletic ability. He will turn heads this year.

      If he turns into a beast as you say, I'm wondering if we can afford to give this guy a guaranteed contract with lots of money. I think the cap stays flat next year

      if ends up surpassing some people's expectaions (like my own)... hell we may not even have the guy in 2013 lol

        I was watching the Giants.com feature on the new guys and Bennett is a big guy. Not fat, but big. If he was 290+ in that feature then I don't see a problem with him carrying that weight unless it is slowing him down.

          Doubt it. 1 year rental. We will get Ballard back, develop Robinson. He is looking to cash in off this year and knows Eli will find him if he gains his trust and stays in shape and healthy. I'm thinking 800 yards, 7-9 tds, and some great blocking. That's a great year for a te in our system.

            Right. We won't overpay for this guy next year. Some youngsters will be waiting to take his spot by next year. Maybe even this year. Pope is a magician.

              He's certainly not "fat".......and even if he doesn't turn out to be the best pass catching TE, he can definitely help the run game, that's for sure

                We'd have to give up a draft pick for Ballard though, since Belicheck is pretty much holding him hostage for ransom now...

                    i dont think its any secret that i was and am a huge proponent of signing bennett. pretty much the second the SB ended, I was counting down to hear what happened with him. My sig for a while was "dream situation: sign bennett"...

                    i believe he is going to have a phenomenal year. he is a physical beast. he has all the tools. and he is a ready made blocker, a dam good one too...i have no doubt eli will turn this guy loose and he'll be a nightmare for defenses. i also think his kinda personality will mesh well with eli.

                      Glad to hear he is a blocker first. Maybe he will be a good match. We need O-line support in the worst way.

                        800 yards? thats a tall order for such a big TE in an offense that doesn't really has them stretching the field to begin with. for example, Shockey's best year was about 800 yards. the TD numbers sound right.

                        btw how big did Howard Cross ever get?

                          They had Howard Cross at 6'5" and 270 lbs. but I think in his later years he was much heavier..and not solid heavy.

                              Didn't he say that his weight gain had been muscle? If so, is he know shedding muscle?
