Tight end Martellus Bennett had a career year for the New York Giants in 2012, and the free agent will be taking his talents to Chicago, it seems. The source for the news was Bennett himself, via Twitter:
I'm proud to say I'll be joining my other brother @ bmarshall next season. #BEARDOWN ... No deal done. Just know that's where I wanna be.

Well, not an official signing, but an agreement in principle. Bennett is on his way to Chicago to get that deal done. And Marshall isn't Bennett's actual brother -- the two pass-catchers are just good friends. However, Bennett's actual brother Michael, formerly a defensive end for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is also a free agent.
