    Tight end Martellus Bennett ready to test free agent market
    Clarence Hill

    Tight end Martellus Bennett is among 20 Cowboys who will be free agents in the offseason.

    It’s safe to say he can’t wait to test the market in hopes of finding an opportunity to be a starter in NFL. He has been a disappointing backup for Pro Bowler Jason Witten since being picked in the second round of the 2008 draft out of Texas A&M.

    “I feel I want to see what is available on the market,” Bennett said. “I feel like I am a guy that can start for a lot of teams in the NFL. That’s what I want to do. I don't want to be behind a Hall of Famer all of my career.”

    He said he doesn't want to be behind one his whole career. You really don't think Witten is a future Hall of Famer?

    I misread the article(happens when you read to fast and start gagging) and thought MB thought he was going to be a hall of famer---so I deleted it

    Is it true that the plane was late because it took Newman so long to run to the locker room

    I think we'll miss him more than most believe. He was a beast in the run game for us. Helped mask just how bad our OL was at times.

    Another prime example of Dallas trimming the fat. He needs to go, he has the wrong mentality and is not what Dallas needs if this thing is going to get turned around.

    On draft day when the Cowboys were discussing Bennett and their second round pick, Jerry was told the coaches would have to keep their "foot on his throat" and Jerry still picked him. You knew things were going to go downhill from there.

    Throw in Pac Man, Tank, Owens, RW and you can start to see why things eroded so quickly. We're in deeper trouble than people realize.

    What a waste of resources.

    Draft a guy in the 2nd, turn around and trade him for a sack of used enema kits and then draft a guy in the 2nd round to replace the guy you just traded.

    And then.......turning down a 1st rounder to keep a guy who is basically going to bail to the highest bidder and never did a thing while in town.

    Just a series of ridiculously stupid moves for a #2 TE.
