    I like Martellus...seems like a good guy, but I think it would be a mistake to put that kind of money into the TE position. The Giants' offense doesn't rely on the TE enough to warrant a million dollar contract. Jake Ballard and Kevin Boss were low cost players that were just as effective as Bennett. Hopefully he gets a nice contract but not with the Giants.

      I'm not saying that Cruz isn't as selfless as Bennett either, it could just be a case of Cruz's management having him stay a little more tight lipped than Bennett's.

      Either way, Bennett has had an opportunity to see the grass on the other side, Cruz hasn't. I believe it's affecting Bennett's approach to this considerably.
      GREAT point. bennetts seen how other franchises, supposed top quality ones, are run and for whatever reason, he prefers it here way more. i hope he retires a giant too, after a solid 7-12 yrs lol and he becomes the next tony g.

        I'm glad to hear this. If he is utilized more in the coming season, he can be a great asset to the team.

          he had about as good a year as a giants TE's had, and the scary thing, i dont think he even came close to reaching the potential he has. in todays game, the middle of the field is often the best way to attack defenses, ESPECIALLY with nicks and cruz on the outside. KG better start using the TE as much as possible bc MB is more than talented enough to be a legit 1 option...ideally, imo, this offense running at its best all year would produce a 1,000 yd 60 reception, 6-8 TD season from MB in combo with Nicks n Cruz...

            Bennett realizes that we can give him something no other team really can in this day and age: a system that works best with his skills. Bennett is a beast in blocking, and we're one of the few teams that looks at TE first as a blocker and second as a receiver.

            I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                He convinced me he belonged when, during an interview, he said his worth wasn't just about his receiving numbers but his ability to block effectively. Understanding that is not something every TE has been able to do.

                  LOVE this guy!!!

                  LOVED him ever since he signed with us.... man we REALLY do have the best organization in the world... it seems almost every player that signs with us says they feel at home and state over and over that they LOVE our organization. Stacy Andrews said the same when he was here.


                  Hats off to our organization.... the best in all of sports.

                    Yeah. He seems like he can be a great all around player for us. And having the desire to get in the trenches and doing the dirty work is definitely a rare trait nowadays. Hopefully, we can lock him up for long term deal.

                      I am expecting him to produce Bavaro type numbers and effort.

                        Would saying that would be pleasant be an understatement?

                          For his first year, he was very close to Shockey numbers who was second only to Bavaro.

                            True. And we still have people that think we should try and get Ballard back to replace Bennett. I wouldn't be opposed to getting Ballard back as our second TE, though. That would allow us to disguise our offense a little more when we break out the 2 TE sets, because Ballard is/was decent as a receiving TE, too.

                              We gave him a shot and he performed, great first year. I'd cherish Bavaro type numbers and effort but please leave the injuries aside!
