Annnd we’re off.

Free agency has officially been open for three entire minutes, and to the surprise of absolutely no one, we already have our first signing. Rotoworld’s Mike Clay was the first to report that Martellus Bennett will be joining the Bears.

Then shortly after, Martellus Bennett was nice enough to report that Martellus Bennett will be joining the Bears.

Bennett signed a four-year, $20 million contract.  After finishing with 626 receiving yards during his one-year stint with the Giants, Bennett fills a major hole on a Bears offense that’s been devoid of a tight end presence of any significance since Greg Olsen left. Last year, Kellen Davis and Matt Spaeth combined for just 257 yards.

  1. Fantasy option?

    • Oh absolutely. Once the initial frenzy settles down later this week and I’m not writing eight posts every 10 minutes, I’ll recap the fantasy implications of the major signings.

      For now, Bennett should receive a nice uptick in production after a transition to an offense with fewer targets. He was constantly fighting for looks in New York with Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks.
