    Tight end Martellus Bennett acknowledged the obvious during an appearance on Pro Football Talk Live on Friday when he said he didn’t want to come back to Dallas as a backup to Jason Witten. He becomes a free agent Tuesday and plans to look for a team that would make him the starter and the focal point of the offense. "I want to be the No. 1 guy," Bennett said. "I feel like I'm a 60-catch-plus guy on a team, so I want to be in a system where I could do (that). I think a lot of people say the hybrid tight ends or the new type of tight ends are the ones to catch the ball, but I think the perfect tight ends are the ones who could actually block and do things with the ball after they catch it." Bennett has caught only 85 passes for 846 yards and four touchdowns with Cowboys since being a second round pick in 2008 out of Texas A&M. He has not caught a touchdown pass since his rookie season.

    The guy is a bust never could do anything on the field. The cowboys van find better TE thru FA and the draft.

    I don't think Jon Phillips is next he might good enough for some downs but not as number 2.

    I hoping we target the tE from UGA

    I thought his second season they were high on Phillips and there was talk of getting rid of Bennett. At least till Phillips got hurt in preseason and was lost all year.

    Phillips in realty hasn't done much, and isn't a good blocker which Garrett really likes in his TEs

    It will be really interesting to see what/who Garrett does to replace Bennett. Bennett wasn't much of a pass catcher but the dude was one hell of a blocker.

    Phillips is a good player, but he is more an H-Back then a TE
