Super Bowl 2017: Is Patriots’ Martellus Bennett open to Giants return?

HOUSTON — Martellus Bennett called himself a nomad at one point during his rollicking, at least-an-hour-long Super Bowl Opening Night

Would the Patriots tight end consider returning to one of his many former stomping grounds? 

“Haha. I don’t know,” Bennett, a pending free agent, said Monday night when asked if he may consider returning to the Giants, who have a pressing need to add a tight end who can both block and play a vertical role in their passing attack. “But I always loved it there. (General manager) Jerry Reese and all those guys are great, the Mara and Tisch families are one of the best owners in the world. I liked it up there.”

Bennett has become a star in his one (and potentially only) season with the Patriots, due to his oversized personality – a rarity for a Patriot in public – and on-field play. Bennett has been integral to the Patriots’ offense this year, catching 55 passes for 701 yards and seven touchdowns in the regular season and six for 36 yards so far this postseason, despite battling knee and ankle injuries.

But will Bill Belichick and the Patriots open the checkbook to bring him back, especially with the banged-up Rob Gronkowski already on the books (and angling for a new deal)? That remains to be seen.
