  • Bennett

    According to Mike Garafolo on twitter:

    Mike Garafolo ‏@MikeGarafolo I think Bennett is gonna walk. Just a guess based on hearing they're doing research on other TEs avail.


    Don't know what to think anymore, I thought for sure they were going to re-sign him. If they do decide to let him walk I hope its at least to get Cruz, Nicks and Beatty signed long term. I wasn't thrilled when we brought him in last year, but the black unicorn has become one of my favorite players.

      I don't get it.. Why get rid of a TE who fits very well with this system can block, make big plays deep down the field and is a viale weapon for eli. When they in fact have nobody else who is honestly capeable. Unless, he wants more money than what he says. Anyway, if he says he's willing to stay for a home town discount then it's ridiculous to get rid of him.. for what? Pascoe? Another project at TE through the draft? .... yeah, whatever.

        home town discount doesn't mean he will play for peanuts either. we don't know how much he's asking for

            No he hasent lol. They are under the cap and they won a Super Bowl a year ago. I'd say that's near perfect managing of the books

                Bennett was a give a 1 years prove it deal. And he showed that he was a very good TE which may have priced out of what the Giants can pay. Nicks, Cruz and Beatty all need to get paid first. You can always find a productive TE for cheap, Bennett, Boss and Ballard all proved that.

                  TEs available in free agency ? Draft ? Any more details on that " rumor " .

                    I wonder if this is where we start learning about the "JPP of tight ends"...

                        Yeah that's sad because is a damn good player but we've to let him walk if we want to sign guys like Beatty or Cruz.
                        I was mad when we signed him not because he didn't suceed at Dallas but because of his contrat, easy to say after his season but i'd prefer a 2-3y deal.

                          Reese knows what he has in Robinson and, as you point out, he has other fish to fry. If he believes Robinson can replace Bennett then it makes sense to let Bennett go. It makes me nervous though as that's the OLine we desperately need to find bodies for. Maybe signing Pascoe early on was a signal.

                            Bennett is the # 1 TE in FA.

                              I'd love to see Bennett return, but Reese is not about to pay a lot for a TE. I've been saying it all along that I don't think we can afford Bennett, especially if JR really thinks Robinson is the JPP of TEs. And we do have the Pontiff of TE coaches to bring him along.
