Patriots release TE Bennett, WR Reedy

New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is tripped up by Denver Broncos free safety Darian Stewart during the first half of an NFL football game in Denver. Bennett is still coming to ter

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".

Congress had every opportunity to legislate a fix, but the fate of Dreamers has proved too divisive for lawmakers to resolve. The Supreme Court ruling hints that the issue won't be resolved any time soon, leaving Dreamers in continued legal limbo.

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.
