Patriots claim tight end Martellus Bennett off waivers

Packers TE Martellus Bennett ruled out Sunday against Bears

The veteran tight end, who was cut on Wednesday and claimed off waivers by the New England Patriots on Thursday.

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

"Martellus with the Patriots, it just seems natural to me", Von Miller said. He was inactive for Monday night's loss to Detroit after being listed with a shoulder injury last week.

Bennett signed a three-year, $21 million contract with the Packers in the offseason after recording a 700-yard, 7-touchdown season with the Patriots in 2016. Prior to his release, Bennett also tweeted that this season might be his final in the NFL.

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.

Coach Mike McCarthy leaned heavily on Bennett, who played on 83 percent of snaps. These next games are for you.

Bennett, playing in his 10th National Football League season, had just 24 receptions in seven games with the Packers but had not played since October 22 - the week before Green Bay's bye week.

It remains to be seen when he might be available to play for New England. If someone is not on that boat, it's better that they're not here. That's not for me to comment on.

Rodgers caught 58 passes in 2015 before ceding time last season to then-starter Jared Cook. "We're looking to move on". He caught 24 passes for 233 yards this season but hadn't caught a touchdown pass. He has yet to catch a pass this season. So they tried to fuck me before they thought I would fuck them.
