Patriots Claim TE Martellus Bennett Off Waivers

Patriots Claim TE Martellus Bennett Off Waivers

Green Bay Packers tight end Richard Rodgers never really got close with fellow tight end Martellus Bennett during his short time with the organization.

However, Bennett may try to play through it, according to Rapoport. Get the app and get the game.

"They tried to f-- me over", Bennett continued on his Instagram story. He has started seven games this season, with 24 catches for 233 yards.

The tight end signed with the Packers this past offseason as a free agent to a three-year, $21 million contract with a $6.3 million signing bonus.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that surgery was being discussed before the Packers released Bennett.

The veteran was added to the injury report after the bye last week with a shoulder injury. A powerful line-of-scrimmage blocker with five consecutive seasons of 50-plus receptions, Bennett provided fresh options to a potent offense.

Bennett was traded by Chicago to New England prior to the 2016 season and became one of quarterback Tom Brady's main targets when Rob Gronkowski was sidelined for the season after eight games following a back injury. "I talked to him Tuesday [following the bye week] after practice and he [had] a shoulder concern injury". It got worse during the season, specifically against the cowboys so I asked to have it checked and we checked it.

They panicked. Thinking that I was trying to go on IR and be on their books next year. The last medical conversation I was involved with in regards to Marty, they were talking about scheduling surgery.

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