FOXBORO -- The move to get Martellus Bennett on the Patriots roster is apparently complete.

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Patriots will waive DE Geneo Grissom to make room for Bennett. Grissom has been a healthy scratch each of the last two weeks. He's eligible to return to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

[UPDATE: 6 p.m.]: The Patriots made the moves official.

The Patriots will now have four tight ends on the roster in Rob Gronkowski, Bennett, Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister. Will Tye is also on the practice squad.
