    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.

    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?

    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.
