Martellus Bennett claimed off waivers by New England Patriots

10 November 2017

The Patriots have claimed the veteran tight end off waivers a day after he was cut loose by the Packers, according to ESPN and other outlets.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is playing Go Fish while the rest of the National Football League is showing their hand. Following the 2013 season, Blount left the Patriots and signed a free agent contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Yes, it happened again.

The NFC North team has made a decision to waive the tight end which they signed to a three-year, $21 million contract back in March because he failed to disclose a medical condition.

Bennett gives the Patriots a secondary receiving option at tight end, as No. 2 tight end Dwayne Allen has struggled in the passing game.

For starters, three of Bennett's seven touchdowns last season came in one game (Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns). He announced during the Packers' bye week that he was "pretty sure" this would be his final season and he has not played since as he battles a shoulder injury. Bennett caught two passes for 17 yards from Rodgers's replacement, Brett Hundley, then revealed his thoughts about possible retirement during the team's Week 8 bye. It's unclear, though, if Bennett will play on "Sunday Night Football" this week.

Patriots fans are outright rejoicing on social media with Bennett back.

Less than 24 hours following the release of Martellus Bennett from the Green Bay Packers, the Pro Bowl tight end has a new home.
