Packers waive TE Martellus Bennett, ending short tenure

  • Green Bay Packers tight end Martellus Bennett celebrates after making a pass reception during the first half of an NFL football game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday Oct. 22 2017 in Green Bay Wis

There's also a possibility that Bennett hangs up his cleats after this season.

Bennett caught a career-high seven touchdown passes with New England last season before signing a three-year, $21 million contract with Green Bay in March.

Mike McCarthy would not directly connect the dots between tight end Martellus Bennett's retirement talk and what led to his unexpected release Wednesday. Bennett practiced on Tuesday after the bye last week before going on the injury report with a shoulder injury.

Duke had determined the adverse conditions in Nicaragua left by Hurricane Mitch no longer exist, officials said . Immigrants from El Salvador make up the largest number of TPS recipients at 195,000.

Bennett served as a solid replacement for Rob Gronkowski after he suffered a season-ending back injury in Week 12 of previous year. The brother of Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, who has sat on the bench during the national anthem before Seattle's games this year, he shares his sibling's penchant for outspoken social commentary. That's the injury the Packers contend that Bennett failed to disclose.

Bennett played with New England last season, winning the Super Bowl over the Atlanta Falcons in a historic comeback.

Bennett was drafted by the Cowboys in 2008.

They will have a trio of veterans with Pro Bowl ability in Gronkowski, Bennett, and Dwayne Allen, an offseason acquisition from the Indianapolis Colts.

He said in the post a few weeks ago: "After conversations with my family I'm pretty sure these next 8 games will be the conclusion of my National Football League career".

Bennett was cut by the Packers to end a freakish situation. The only other Patriots tight end with a reception this season is rookie Jacob Hollister, with three catches. These next games are for you.
