#Patriots TE Martellus Bennett is in for a big payday. He turned down a $7M per year offer before the season. Will resume talks after 2016.
Bennett gambled on himself and it looks like it is about to pay off. According to Rapoport the two will continue talking after the season, but with Gronkowski hurt now and done for the year, it will be interesting to see how valuable Bennett will be for them.
Bennett is chasing the big bucks and I cannot blame him.
