It’s been a whirlwind week for veteran tight end Martellus Bennett, who was waived by the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday and immediately claimed by the New England Patriots, for whom he caught three passes for 38 yards in a 41-16 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Did the Chiefs, who love to use multi-tight end sets, think about making a move on Bennett? To hear coach Andy Reid tell it, they did. “We looked at that as a potential (move),” Reid said. “(But) he’s in a good place. It worked out good for him.” Reid did not divulge the reasons why the Chiefs didn’t put in a claim for Bennett. The 10-year pro has caught 430 passes for 4,558 yards and 30 touchdowns in his career but was released last week with a failure-to-disclose-injury designation related to a shoulder ailment.
