Packers cut tight end Martellus Bennett

Packers cut tight end Martellus Bennett”

Would the New England Patriots want to dance with Bennett again?

The official notice shows Bennett was waived for "failure to disclose a medical condition designation". There's no sense in a team like the Giants, Bengals, or Cardinals paying a 30-year-old tight end to play eight games.

According to Pro Football Reference, the only other tight ends with at least 400 catches, 4,000 yards and 30 scores since 2008 are Vernon Davis, Antonio Gates, Tony Gonzalez, Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Delanie Walker and Jason Witten. McCarthy said last week that Bennett was still being evaluated by doctors. Allen has struggled at times as a blocker and has not yet caught a pass as a member of the Patriots.

There are some complications.

Considering the Packers lost star QB Aaron Rodgers with a broken collarbone, Bennett wouldn't have been much of an impact player for the team down the stretch anyway. Bennett signed a three-year, $21 million contract with the Packers. His new team will take on 8/17ths of his 2017 $900,000 salary and $37,500 46-man active roster bonuses if they claim him.

Of course, Bennett has been contemplating retirement. First off, Bennett must be healthy enough to play.

Bennett, for all of his peculiarities, worked out well for the Patriots in their Super Bowl LI-championship season. Instead, he got Martellus Bennett.

It's not clear if that's the shoulder injury that mysteriously popped up after he returned from the bye or if it's something else.
