Martellus Bennett | Dallas Cowboys: Jason WittenOne guy who’ll be available when the market opens is Martellus Bennett. He will be  a free agent, one day before his 25th birthday.

He’s got the size and physical attributes needed for a TE.  It seems when he gets a chance, he doesn’t make anything happen.  After viewing every game he has played in, I have noticed he does not have good hands, can’t run good routes, gets penalized to much, and just seems lazy at times, but is a good blocker.  To me, he just seems uninspired and unfocused.  I guess he did not learn much from one of the best TE’s in NFL history, Jason Witten.  The Cowboys turned down an offer from Cincinnati a few years ago, offering their 1st round pick … OUCH.

Bennett said he’s ready to step out of Jason Witten’s shadow.

I want to be the No. 1 guy,” Bennett said during the show, via Clarence E. Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star Telegram. “I feel like I’m a 60-catch-plus guy on a team, so I want to be in a system where I could do [that]. I think a lot of people say the hybrid tight ends or the new type of tight ends are the ones to catch the ball, but I think the perfect tight ends are the ones who could actually block and do things with the ball after they catch it.”

Bennett also said that players from the Bears, Bucs, and Dolphins have been trying to get him interested in joining their teams.  It is pretty clear that the second-round pick from the 2008 draft won’t be a Cowboy for much longer.  So long Marty!
