TweetThe New York Giants have signed ex Dallas Cowboys TE Martellus Bennett to a 1 year contract reportedly worth $2.5 million.
This is a smart move by the organization considering both Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum suffered serious injuries during the Super Bowl and are not expected back at the start of the season.
Bennett is a talented player who has had limited opportunities in Dallas, playing behind TE Jason Witten does not afford backups much playing time. Martellus does come with a little baggage, in the past he has made negative comments which seem to have been directed towards Tony Romo. He had an incident where he posted nude photos of himself online, and has been criticized for not playing up to his potential. He has married and seems to have made changes in his life.
Before the 2011 season he said
I represent my wife. I really didn't care what anybody said about me until she started to care. I am more professional with all the things I want to do right now

Guess we can now pencil in Tony Romo to be playing indoor soccer on Monday nights somewhere in Texas. Adjust your paparazzi schedule accordingly, fools. BC tipster Troy sent word that Tony was up to his normal offseason routine so we had our eyes open this morning for Tony ripping shots on some goalie who spends his days working in commercial real estate. Yep, Tony played soccer...

The Cowboys have added QB Kyle Orton and OG Mackenzy Bernadeau as their latest free agent acquisitions. Orton was an absolute need, and will provide solid backup play for Romo. Bernadeau, in my opinion, was brought in to add depth and create competition. I don’t see see Bernadeau as being the guy we had to have to jump in and start at guard.
Injuries were a big hinderance for the...
