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.

Whenever Seth Wickersham reveals a tidbit from his new book, "It's Better to Be Feared," examining the New England Patriots dynasty, Tom Brady, and his departure from the team, it always seems specifically directed at 49ers fans. And no, I'm not exaggerating. Earlier today, more news from Wickersham's book was revealed via ESPN scout Matt Miller, where it was reported that the Patriots allegedly offered a second-round pick for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Day 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft, to which the 49ers said no because they desired a first-rounder in return. The Patriots remained in the first round, selecting Mac Jones with the 15th overall pick, while the 49ers took Trey Lance after trading up to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL

Another interesting tidbit was revealed yesterday courtesy of the new book, "It's Better to Be Feared," by ESPN's Seth Wickersham. The reporter's colleague, Matt Miller, tweeted out that, per the book, the New England Patriots were very interested in reacquiring San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Day 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft. Wickersham reports, via Miller, that the Patriots were willing to surrender a second-round pick in exchange for Garoppolo. Now, the 49ers had long been set on drafting Garoppolo's successor, Trey Lance, and had repeatedly stated that Garoppolo remained in their plans for 2021. However, the team would not ignore any intriguing

Jimmy Garoppolo was out on the practice field for the third time this week (the San Francisco 49ers held a bonus practice on Monday). We won't know exactly how much the starting quarterback worked during today's session until the team issues its practice participation report later this afternoon. Reporters aren't allowed to watch the entire practice, which means missing out on team drills. The Niners listed Garoppolo as limited on Wednesday. On Wednesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said he is "pretty optimistic" Garoppolo would be available for Sunday's home game against the Indianapolis Colts. However, he was less sure about the status of his rookie quarterback and
