Martellus Bennett would be a signing for the Houston Texans.
Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com decided to have some fun and create a list of “fun” free agent signings for each team in the AFC.
Rosenthal believes New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett would be an interesting move for the Houston Texans.
Bennett back in his hometown of Houston would be great and he would be playing for head coach Bill O’Brien who of course has ties to the Patriots after serving as their offensive coordinator before taking the Texans head job.
Here’s what Rosenthal wrote:
"Add another name to the New England-Houston pipeline? A tight end, like Bennett, who can block and catch would improve coach Bill O’Brien’s offensive options, with the team also able to deploy C.J. Fiedorowicz. Bennett, a Houston native who just won a Super Bowl in the city, would add another dimension to a nice group of skill-position players. (If you just ignore that tricky quarterback position.)"

Bennett would be a huge addition to a struggling Texans offense. Now of course their biggest need is at quarterback, but he would be a nice weapon to go along with DdeAndre Hopkins and company.
Like I’ve said before, the only problem with Bennett is that he’s 30 years-old and he’s going to command more money than the Texans can afford.
