The New England Patriots are 4-1, Tom Brady made a scorching season debut on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns and their tight end position is amongst the strongest in the league.
Star tight end Rob Gronkowski may have taken a few weeks to overcome injury issues, but he made his presence known for the first time against Cleveland.
Making the headlines however is Martellus Bennett who made the move from Chicago to New England in the off-season and already has four touchdown grabs and two games with over 100 receiving yards.

Bennett is making headlines in New England, but his recent comments about his three year period with the Chicago Bears could be the biggest of them all.
The Patriots star was never able to win more than eight games a season in Chicago despite being part of a team containing other stars like Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery.

Bennett has however launched an attack on his former team and former teammates by claiming:
"We just had a bunch of [expletives] on the roster ... That’s why we didn’t win games, and coaches liked the [expletives].” - Bennett on his former Chicago teammates
A very strong claim from the former Bears star, but he didn't stop there, referring to a wide ranging problem in Chicago, Bennett would go on to focus on quarterback Jay Cutler.
Cutler who has currently lost the starting job in Chicago to Brian Hoyer through injury, became the target of Bennett's interview when he claimed:
"Some guys that you want to be the leader; that’s not the guy that’s a leader.”
Some big words from Bennett regarding his old team who are currently languishing on 1-4 and dead last in the NFC North.
It makes us wish we could see the Bears take on the Patriots at Soldier Field to see what reaction Benett would receive, but that could be a game for another day.
