Martellus Bennett dumped by Patriots hours after brother is traded to Eagles

New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett

The Patriots also cut defensive end Caleb Kidder and receiver Bernard Reedy. He will have to find a new day job in the fall, though.

ESPN reported that the team is releasing the tight end, who played in two games last season after being picked up on waivers from Green Bay. He was elevated to the 53-man roster on December 2, before being released on December 13, and re-signed to the practice squad on December 19.

Bennett was due a $2 million roster bonus on March 14, and was set to make $3.6 million base salary next season.

European Union urges Russia, Turkey, Iran to uphold ceasefire in eastern Ghouta
Fighting on the ground raged through Russia's daily five-hour truce, though there is no sign Russian Federation was involved. Residents have said they do not trust the truce.

Bennett signed a three-year deal with the Green Bay Packers before he was cut for "failure to disclose a physical condition" and then re-signed with the Patriots. According to ESPN's Field Yates, New England will release the enigmatic pass catcher. He had six catches for 53 yards in those games before a shoulder injury sidelined him for the remainder of the season. It came after a spat over an injury pertaining to the former Pro Bowl tight end.

Reedy, 26, was signed by New England to the practice squad on November 22, 2017, after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But the veteran played a grand total of just two regular season games.
