49ers among teams showing interest in Patriots TE Martellus Bennett

The San Francisco 49ers are among the teams reportedly showing interest in New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett, per Ben Volin of the Boston Globe. Other interested teams include the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Oakland Raiders.


It was just reported that the 49ers plan to sign Chicago Bears TE Logan Paulsen so it is unknown if that changes the team's interest in Bennett.

Update:
Bennett is not on the 49ers' radar, per CSN Bay Area.


In 2016, Bennett had 55 receptions for 701 yards and seven touchdowns in his only season with New England. He also had 11 receptions for 98 yards in the postseason and got a Super Bowl championship out of it. Bennett's best season came in 2014 when he had 90 receptions for 916 yards and six touchdowns with the Chicago Bears. He has also spent time with the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.

The 6-foot-6 tight end turns 30 on Friday. Over his nine-year career, Bennett has 403 receptions for 4,287 yards and 30 touchdowns. He was drafted by Dallas in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M.

"I love [Bourne's] game, how he is kind of similar (to myself), in a sense," Sanu told reporters on Thursday. "We just always would communicate through Instagram or text. We just happen to be on the same team now. ... It's been cool to be around him every day. He's a big ball of energy, a great personality, great athlete, better person. It's fun to be around him." Sanu didn't join the 49ers just to be a veteran mentor, though. He signed with the team to contribute on a championship
