Martellus Bennett Will Sign With the Chicago Bears, the First Signing of the 2013 Free Agent Period

Martellus Bennett will sign with the Chicago Bears, according to Mike Clay of Pro Football Focus and Rotoworld. Bennett is a unique personality, so he should fit right in with the Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall combo. Chicago desperately needed to upgrade their receiving weapons, as Brandon Marshall was basically it last year, and they were playing Kellen Davis at tight end (yuck). Let’s put it this way–Matt Forte was second on the team with 44 catches, and no one else had thirty. Bennett had 55 catches for 626 yards and 5 touchdowns last year catching passes from Eli Manning.
