Report: Raiders interested in free agent TE Martellus Bennett

The Oakland Raiders are reportedly in the hunt to acquire Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett, who officially becomes a free agent this month.

While the Pats are still interested in bringing back Bennett for 2017, Oakland, as well as Jacksonville, likely would offer a more lucrative contract.

Bennett played a big part in the Super Bowl champ Patriots’ success while fellow TE Rob Gronkowski was sidelined, posting a career-best yards per reception with 12.7.
