Packers Cut Martellus Bennett With Failure to Disclose Physical Condition Designation

Packers Cut Martellus Bennett With Failure to Disclose Physical Condition Designation

Starting tight end Martellus Bennett will be out for the game at the Chicago Bears (10 a.m. on WTMJ).

Releasing the 30-year-old Bennett under that umbrella makes the Packers eligible to reclaim $4.2 million from his signing bonus, according to ESPN.

Bennett will now be available on waivers for the other 31 National Football League teams, who have until Thursday afternoon to place a claim.

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

Bennett's release comes hours after Packers coach Mike McCarthy ruled out Bennett for this week because of a shoulder injury.

He had just 24 catches for 233 yards and no touchdowns in this his first season for Green Bay. If the veteran tight end is healthy, there should be a substantial market for him.

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.

Bennett, who won Super Bowl LI with the Patriots in February after one of his most productive seasons as a pro, gave a halfhearted indication he would retire at the end of the season in a message he posted to his Instagram story during the bye week. Bennett replaced Jared Cook and was thought to become a major part of Green Bay's offense as another dependable target for Rodgers in the passing game.

Bennett returned with the rest of the team on October 31 and took part in practice that day. He did not play Monday night against the Lions. By the afternoon, Bennett had been cut by the Packers. "So if Marty is there, great".
