According to Michael Silver of SI.com, the San Francisco 49ers are still one of many teams that will compete for wide receiver Drew Bennett's services when free agency begins at 9pm Pacific Time tonight.
The other interested teams include the New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders and New York Giants. The Tennessee Titans, Bennett's original team, are also expected to try and resign Bennett.
"I'm up for it," Bennett said. "I'm gonna play my ass off for someone."
Last season, Bennett, who is entering his 7th NFL season, lead the Titans in receiving with 46 catches for 737 yards and 3 touchdowns. In 2004, Bennett had a career year with 80 receptions for 1247 yards and 11 touchdowns.
