Plans to stay retired

Bennett said he doesn't plan to come out of retirement, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Bennett hinted at a return to football after his brother was traded to the Patriots, but he's now making it clear that his focus is on his company, The Imagination Agency. The 32-year-old tight end struggled with injuries in 2017 and didn't play in 2018.

Interested in New England

Bennett is interested in coming out of retirement to play with his brother for the Patriots, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Bennett was released by New England almost exactly a year ago and announced his retirement shortly thereafter. His interest in playing football seems to have been rekindled by the knowledge that his former team is working out a trade to acquire his older brother -- 33-year-old defensive end Michael Bennett -- from the Eagles. Martellus will celebrate his 32nd birthday over the weekend, having last played football in Nov. 2017.
