Martellus Bennett could unretire to join brother Michael on Patriots, report says

Martellus Bennett could unretire to join brother Michael on Patriots, report says The Patriots reportedly traded for Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett on Friday. He recorded nine sacks for Philadelphia in 2018-19. If the Michael Bennett-to-New-England trade is finalized - and it is expected to be - Patriots and Eagles will swap 5th- and 7th-round picks in the 2020 draft, per a league source. Eagles get a 5th; Pats get Bennett and a 7th.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 8, 2019 Michael's younger brother, Martellus, last played for New England in 2017 and retired in March 2018. He totaled six receptions for 53 yards that year.

Michael Bennett is singing a different tune about the Patriots now that he will be playing with the team.

The defensive end was traded Thursday to New England by the Eagles along with a 2020 seventh-round draft pick in return for a 2020 fifth-round pick, which has changed Bennett's outlook on the team.

"I used to hate the Patriots. I'd hate it because they'd win so much. I'd hate it because Tom Brady's hair was long. I'd hate it that [coach Bill] Belichick would wear sweaters. But now that I'm here, I love you. I love Tom Brady's hair," Bennett said, via the team's website.

Michael Bennett says brother Martellus coming out of retirement is probably 'fake news'

Michael Bennett says brother Martellus coming out of retirement is probably 'fake news' Bennett called the reports of Martellus Bennett coming out of retirement "fake news" while speaking at an event at Princeton University. Will his brother @MartysaurusRex come out of retirement to play with @mosesbread72? It'd be great, but, it's probably "fake news," says Bennett.— Princeton University (@Princeton) March 11, 2019 Michael Bennett is reportedly headed to the Patriots, where his brother spent 2016 and part of 2017 before he retired. "There's a lot of moving pieces to it ...

"I love being a Patriot because, obviously, it's all about winning. I think everything about the organization is about team-first. It's just about doing what you need to do to get to where we want to go as a group. I think I love that."

Bennett, 33, spent last season with the Eagles. Before that, he played with the Buccaneers and Seahawks. While with the Seahawks, Bennett both won and lost Super Bowls against the Patriots.

Interestingly, Bennett's brother, Martellus, won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2016.

"He loved it, but the fact he loved it made me hate it," Michael Bennett said of his brother. "I was the brother that was the Super Bowl champ. Then he took that from me. Now I need to take that back."

Martellus Bennett retired last offseason after the Patriots placed him on injured reserve during the 2017 season due to shoulder and hamstring injuries.

500 jobs threatened as LK Bennett enters administration.
The fashion retailer LK Bennett has collapsed, placing 500 jobs at risk. The womenswear chain, which trades from 200 outlets across the UK and in overseas markets including China, announced last Friday that it was on course to throw in the towel after attempts to fashion new investment and a partial sale failed. Administrators from business services firm EY said they had already reduced the number of employees at the brand's head office in London and closed five stores, resulting in around 55 job losses.
