[Update: 6:13 p.m. EDT] The Chicago Bears have confirmed the team and Martellus Bennett have agreed to terms.
Former Giants and Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett said he will sign with the Bears on Tuesday night according to Mike Davis of Pro Football Fantasy Focus.
Bennett soon tweeted that despite not having a “done deal” with the Bears, Chicago is where he wanted to be. Bennett also mentions joining “other brother” Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
The New York Daily News reported Sunday the Giants were attempting to keep Bennett. He had also been linked to having interest in signing with the same team as his brother, free agent defensive end Michael Bennett.
