As Recoil mentioned, M. Bennett will be MORE than just a blocking TE. The Bears are going to use his all around abilities as TE. If they were just going to use Bennett as a blocker, then why the heck did they sign Maneri from K.C., who is strictly a blocking TE?
You have every reason to be skeptical but Trestman knows the importance of having a TE who can create mismatches. To me the Bears valued his offensive playmaking ability first and foremost, and that his blocking ability is the iciing on top of the cake.
I promise you, Bennett will be more than a blocking TE in Trestman's system.
