Patriots Claim TE Martellus Bennett Off Waivers

Bennett was released by the Packers on Wednesday, following a three-year, $21 million contract he signed as a free-agent in March. Bennett is now dealing with a shoulder injury. Bennett dropped a few passes, but was an asset in the running game.

Bennett was cut by the Packers to end a freaky situation. In addition to Allen's lack of production, uncertainty surrounds Chris Hogan as he remained in a sling late in the week.

McCarthy said he never had a conversation with Bennett about retirement. The brother of Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, who has sat on the bench during the national anthem before Seattle's games this year, he shares his sibling's penchant for outspoken social commentary.

Janoris Jenkins Reinstated by Giants After Suspension for Rules Violation
New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been reinstated after serving a one-week suspension for a violation of team rules. He was waived on September 2, re-signed on September 28, and was inactive for the Giants' game in Tampa Bay on October 1.

While it initially appeared as though Martellus Bennett's National Football League career could be coming to an abrupt halt, it seems as though one phone call has now changed everything. He is the brother of the Seahawks' Michael Bennett, who has sat during the anthem.

Bennett finished his time at the Packers with just 233 yards and no touchdowns off 24 catches. Bennett is owed $13 million in 2018 and 2019 although none if it is guaranteed.

If Bennett does get healthy, he proved last season he is capable of thriving in the Patriots' offense and he provides a potent threat in the red zone alongside New England's four-time Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski. I think this all started obviously coming out of the bye week. Green Bay was 4-1 before Rodgers' injury but hasn't won a game since. Both have had 50-catch seasons.
