Packers cut TE Martellus Bennett with failure to disclose physical condition designation

Packers cut TE Martellus Bennett with failure to disclose physical condition designation

The Packers cut Bennett Wednesday over a mysterious injury that had sidelined him since Green Bay's first game without quarterback Aaron Rodgers, a 26-17 loss to the Saints in Week 7. "To everyone who has poured themselves and time into my life and career".

Bennett signed with the Packers as an unrestricted free agent last off-season and started seven games.

Though we don't yet know exactly what happened between Bennett and the Packers, it seems likely that his injury is somewhat serious. He did not play Monday night against the Lions.

In free agency, Bennett got a three-year, $21 million contract that included a $6.3 million signing bonus.

Rays' Evan Longoria wins third Golden Glove Award
Goldschmidt, 30, captured his third Gold Glove distinction to cap a stellar season that puts him firmly in the MVP conversation. Hosmer's four Rawlings Gold Glove Awards are tied with Perez for third-most all-time among Kansas City players.

Bennett had 24 receptions for 233 yards no touchdowns in his short stint in Green Bay. The Packers' other two tight ends, Richard Rodgers and Lance Kendricks, have a total of 12 catches this season.

Meanwhile, a number of his now ex-teammates are wondering what went awry - and whether Bennett quit on them as soon as they lost two-time NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers to an October 15 broken right collarbone.

Last month, Bennett, 30, wrote an Instagram story explaining he was leaning toward retiring after this season. I understand what's going on, and I don't turn a blind eye to it.

"I think when I stop loving the preparation is when I will give it up because that's the most important part, whether that's working out or watching film and studying and taking notes", Bennett said in camp. The Packers may look to add more depth at the tight end position in the near future, quite possibly from practice squad member Emmanuel Byrd.
