Ex-Packer Martellus Bennett heads back to New England Patriots

Packers TE Martellus Bennett ruled out Sunday against Bears

Bennett has been rehabbing and getting opinions on a shoulder injury suffered during practice last

The tight end accused Green Bay officials of failing to handle his shoulder injury appropriately and suggested their decision to claim he failed to disclose an injury before cutting him was an attempt to avoid paying him additional money. According to Rapoport, the 30-year-old could try to play through the injury, but should his efforts be unsuccessful, New England could then put him on injured reserve.

Bennett said the Packers cleared his shoulder during a March exam when he joined them as a free agent following a one-year stint with the Patriots. They even gave me an xray as well.

Coach Mike McCarthy leaned heavily on Bennett, who played on 83 percent of snaps.

The Packers waived him because of that injury on Wednesday.

"They tried to f-k over me".

There was a rift between Bennett and the Packers growing this year, with Bennett posting on Instagram during the team's bye week he was strongly considering retiring. I advised him to get the second opinions.

Bennett had 24 receptions and 233 yards in the seven games he played for the Packers this season. The last medical conversation I was involved with in regards to Marty, they were talking about scheduling surgery.

Said tight end Richard Rodgers: "I think we know where we're trying to go".

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

Rodgers stopped just short of accusing Bennett of forcing his way off the roster when Packers starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his clavicle earlier this season. "I've answered the question for the last time, respectfully".
