Patriots Claim TE Martellus Bennett After Waived By Packers

Martellus Bennett claimed by New England Patriots on waivers

The 30-year-old then sat out practice Wednesday and was listed as having a shoulder injury as Green Bay began preparations for its game Sunday at Chicago.

Bennett was signed to a three-year deal in the offseason to take Rodgers' job.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL, Bennett passed his physical with the Patriots and participated at Friday's practice in New England.

McCarthy said he did not talk to Bennett about retiring, and he wouldn't speculate on whether there was any connection between Bennett's Instagram post, the injury and the team's sagging fortunes without Aaron Rodgers.

Martellus Bennett is back on the Patriots. They even gave me an xray as well.

"They tried to f-- me over", Bennett continued on his Instagram story.

Green Bay waived him with the designation of failure to disclose a medical condition, which they hope will help them recoup the remaining $4.2 million on his signing bonus.


The Packers were thinking surgery was necessary for Bennett's injured shoulder.

With Green Bay, he hauled in 24 catches for 233 yards and no touchdowns. I advised him to get the second opinions.

"The last medical conversation I was involved with in regards to Marty was talking about scheduling surgery", McCarthy said Friday.

"Martellus with the Patriots, it just seems natural to me", Von Miller said.

During the bye week I got off anti inflammatories to clean my system and could really feel the pain.

Earlier this season, Bennett suggested he was considering retirement after the 2017 season. "I've answered the question for the last time, respectfully".
