Patriots release TE Bennett, WR Reedy

Report: Patriots to release TE Martellus Bennett

His release is the second piece of Bennett brothers news Wednesday.

Field Yates of ESPN reported the Patriots will cut the veteran tight end. The Seattle Seahawks traded defensive end Michael Bennett and a seventh-round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a fifth-round pick and wide receiver Marcus Johnson, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. He had six catches for 53 yards in two games with the Patriots before being placed on injured reserve last season. Bennett had a $2 million option bonus due March 16.

The move does not come as a surprise, as it frees up just under $6 million in cap space for the Pats, giving them about $23 million total to work with. However, after Aaron Rodgers was hurt, Bennett was released from the team for "failure to disclose an injury".

China Boosts Spending to Bolster Military Capabilities
The 8.1% increase is higher than last year's announcement, when China upped military spending by 7% over the previous year. China's defense spending as a share of GDP and the budget also remains lower than that of other major nations, he said.

Bennett, 31, was claimed by the Patriots on November 9, 2017, after he was waived by Green Bay Packers.

By cutting Bennett, the Patriots could be confident in the return of Rob Gronkowski, who has been publicly mulling retirement. The craziness for Bennett started back in October when he wrote on social media that he planned to retire following the 2017 season.

Bennett, 30, only played two games with the Patriots after signing with the team last season. By cutting him now, the Patriots save almost $6 million in cap space.
