Patriots claim Bennett off waivers

Martellus Bennett's short stay in Green Bay is over

According to a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Packers waived Bennett because of a torn rotator cuff.

The Packers signed him to a three-year, $21 million this offseason, but released him after just seven games. A powerful line-of-scrimmage blocker with five consecutive seasons of 50-plus receptions, Bennett provided fresh options to a potent offense.

"The #Patriots say TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was limited in practice today and is QUESTIONABLE to play Sunday in Denver".

To clear a roster spot for Bennett, New England released defensive lineman Geneo Grissom.

During the Packers' bye week, Bennett posted on Instagram that he was "pretty sure" he would retire at the end of the season. After a day off Wednesday, Bennett did not participate in the practice the rest of the week and was inactive for Monday night's loss against Detroit because of a shoulder injury.

The 30-year-old had 55 catches for 701 yards and seven touchdowns in his lone season as a Patriots before leaving for Green Bay in free agency.

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. I advised him to get the second opinions. After that, then you have the termination and then the claim.

During the bye week I got off anti inflammatories to clean my system and could really feel the pain. "I don't think it's right to judge that, either", McCarthy said. "I've answered the question for the last time, respectfully".
