The Patriots put themselves in an even better chance to repeat Friday afternoon, moving to acquire veteran defensive end Michael Bennett from the Eagles for late-round draft pick compensation, according to multiple reports.
The problem is, of course, Bennett was their best defensive end last season and his production won't be easy to match.
Martellus, who has also played for the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Chicago Bears in his career, has amassed 4,573 receiving yards and 30 touchdowns on 433 receptions.
Michael Bennett might've just made it more hard for the Eagles to trade him. Bennett fits the Patriots very well, considering he is very versatile, playing all along the line and doing it well.

Democrats push to reinstate net neutrality rules
Net neutrality is the idea that all internet content and users should be treated equally by internet services providers (ISPs). This term's larger Senate Republican majority, and the likely need for 60 votes, makes the fight all the more hard in 2019.

Meanwhile, Warren wants to reverse "illegal and anti-competitive tech mergers " via appointed regulators. When asked, a spokesperson for Warren's campaign said Apple was indeed targeted by the policy.
Bennett isn't a long-term answer for the Patriots. The likelihood of Flowers remaining a Patriot just slimmed down tremendously.
"I don't know what's happening with the Eagles". He is projected to start opposite Derek Barnett, who was placed on injured reserve in October following shoulder surgery.
Before retiring, Martellus played in 18 regular season games with the Patriots over his final two years in the league (2016-17).
The 33-year-old Bennett, the older brother of ex-Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett, is mostly known for his five-year run with the Seattle Seahawks, where he totaled 39 sacks in 75 games, won a Super Bowl, and was a three-time Pro Bowler.
Could there be another set of brothers on the Patriots? Bennett's attorney has stated that his client will enter a not guilty plea if the case goes to trial.
