Martellus Bennett: 'Pretty sure' I'm retiring after 2017

Martellus Bennett: 'Pretty sure' I'm retiring after 2017”

Green Bay Packers tight end Martellus Bennett announced via his Instagram account story that he was "pretty sure" he would be retiring at the conclusion of the 2017 season.

With a series of photos on his Instagram story, Bennett said, "After conversations with my family I'm pretty sure these next 8 games will be the conclusion of my National Football League career".

Bennett earned a Pro Bowl selection while with the Bears in 2014 and won his first Super Bowl title when the Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons in February. "Thank you." At 30 years old, Bennett has played nine-plus seasons across five teams. After four underachieving seasons with the Cowboys, he spent time with the New York Giants (2012), Chicago Bears (2013-2015) and New England Patriots (2016) before signing with the Packers. Through seven games, the veteran tight end has 24 catches for 233 yards and zero touchdowns.

He has become increasingly more active in pursuing his off the field interests, which include writing children books and his creative work with his company, The Imagination Agency. He doesn't need football to find meaning in his life, and a bye week like the Packers are on this week can surely bring some reflection. Green Bay returns to action on November 6 against the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field.
