Not long after reports surfaced that the Seattle Seahawks had agreed to trade defensive end Michael Bennett to the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday, the New England Patriots announced that they released tight end Martellus Bennett.

For the second straight year, the Patriots are bidding farewell to Martellus Bennett. Bennett previously posted on Instagram that he considered retirement after the season, but signed with the Patriots shortly afterward.

After a Super Bowl-winning season in 2016-17, Bennett signed with the Green Bay Packers.

Tributes flood in for athletics hero Sir Roger Bannister
On a windy late afternoon in Oxford on May 6, 1954, Bannister ran four laps on a cinder track in 3 minutes, 59.4 seconds. They had two sons and two daughters and lived only minutes away from the track where he set the record.

Last month, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport said Bennett hoped to return to the NFL next season. "To everyone that has poured themselves and time into my life and career". By moving on from Bennett, New England saves a cool $6.2 million against the cap. He had signed a three-year, $21 million contract with Green Bay before the 2017 season, which came after a stellar one-year stint in New England. Shoulder and hamstring issues landed the tight end on IR in late November, but assuming he wants to play in 2018, Bennett figures to draw some interest once he re-proves his health.

The Bennett brothers are on the move.
