Patriots Claim TE Martellus Bennett After Waived By Packers

"The Packers examined my shoulder March 10 and cleared it".

Former Green Bay Packer TE Martellus Bennett has some choice words for his former team and their medical staff.

Bennett, who was released by Green Bay with the designation that he failed to disclose a physical condition, rejoins the team with which he won a Super Bowl ring last season.

The addition of Bennett gives Patriots quarterback Tom Brady another huge red zone target to pair with star tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Reports say Bennett had a torn rotator cuff.

Bennett had a locker at Gillette Stadium on Friday. "I f--d it up playing for the @packers". He had already been ruled out of the Packers' Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears. "I don't think it's right to judge that, either", McCarthy said. That's not for me to comment on. He returned to practice the following week and then suffered a shoulder injury the next day. "So, I mean, it'd be all speculation".

Fantasy Impact Bennett was largely a bust this season after high expectations when he chose to join the Packers and Aaron Rodges.

The Packers signed him to a three-year, $21 million this offseason, but released him after just seven games. However, Bennett has a $2 million bonus option for 2018 that the Patriots could decline, making Bennett a free agent.

Bennett claims the Packers were trying to force him to "play thru a major injury".

If Bennett plays this week, it may reveal more about the severity of his injury and his exit from Green Bay.
