Martellus Bennett was off the market before free agency ever even truly opened, apparently, as the news immediately broke that he would sign with the Chicago Bears this evening.
BEars have agreed in princpal w/Martellus Bennett .

That’s one player to scratch off the Titans board of possible TE replacements, as well as possible homes for former Titans TE Jared Cook.
Perhaps that leaves the negotiation door open for the Titans, who made very clear that they wanted to bring him back, as he’s an integral part of what they’re trying to do on offense. That being said, the news has also come to the forefront that the Tennessee Titans are interested in the 49ers TE Delanie Walker.
I don’t have much to say on that front, besides the fact that it surprises me that they’re possibly thinking of replacing Jared Cook with a former 6th round pick, of which I’ve heard little about. You could also blame that lack of knowledge on the fact that I don’t follow the 49ers closely.
Things are out of control. Crazy. Free agency opened 17 minutes ago.
