  • Martellus Bennett "Plans On Retiring" With The Giants

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/21/...w-york-giants/

    Excerpt: "Tight end Martellus Bennett has only been with the New York Giants for one season, and despite facing a free agency period where he can likely cash in, the five-year veteran is already thinking about retiring in blue.

    During a Q&A hosted on his Twitter – something he does daily – Bennett was asked by a fan "How do you feel about your chances of returning to the Giants?" Always honest and upfront, Bennett gave a very blunt answer.

    "I plan on retiring here,"Bennett tweeted." Read more...

          I'll admit I have heard Cruz say he wants to retire a Giant. But I think there is a difference between planning and wanting. Paired with the fact that Bennett has also said he would consider taking a discount to stay here.

          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.

            I hope he does. He had a good first season here. Hell only get better.

              Would love to have the Unicorn get a long term contract.

                I like this guy! He is all about playing football and we desperately need a personality like his on the team right now. I really believe in MB.

                  I do too. He had a really good first season for us and he will be a huge part of this offense as his role grows. I would love for him to stay and also to get an OC that can implement a better offensive scheme and use the weapons we have properly.

                    He's definitely appreciative of the opportunity that he was given.

                      Cruz and his handlers are very wise not to discuss any details in public. Cruz has expressed his thanks to the Giants any number of times. It remains to be seen if he will be a Giant of the future.

                        I'm a bit surprised he doesn't have a contract yet, is it because we don't have any cap space since we can't cut anyone?

                            It will happen before March 12th or Cruz may well be history here. So much of who they can re-sign depends on who they can release and at what cost. They can put a tender on Cruz, which hasn't happened yet, but that doesn't mean another team won't pay the price for him with a bigger contract. Personally, I think they will get a deal done.

                              Cruz is going to get paid either way. It's about time and I couldn't be more happier for him. Bennett is a keeper and should be high in the priority of being re-signed.
