Packers Cut Martellus Bennett With Failure to Disclose Physical Condition Designation

Bennett is now dealing with a shoulder injury and head coach Mike McCarthy said the tight end won't play Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Though we don't yet know exactly what happened between Bennett and the Packers, it seems likely that his injury is somewhat serious.

The Packers released Bennett on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Field Yates who initially reported on the news. If the veteran tight end is healthy, there should be a substantial market for him.

Martellus Bennett's time with the Green Bay Packers was brief - and extremely disappointing.

Bennett, who has a reputation for being outspoken, recently came out on Instagram stating that 2017 would probably be his last season in the NFL.

The Packers are expected to use fellow tight ends Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers while Bennett remains sidelined after the two saw their workload increase in Monday's game.

Asked about his sudden desire to leave the game, Bennett was even more vague.

Bennett's production in the seven games he did play was modest: 24 catches for 233 yards and no touchdowns. They gave him a $6.3 million signing bonus.

But his sudden disappearance after Rodgers' injury led multiple players to wonder whether Bennett quit on them in the wake of the quarterback's injury. If he goes unclaimed after that, he is free to sign with any team and continue playing.

But if another team is looking to sign him off waivers, or once he becomes a free agent after 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, identifying what's ailing him will be just as important as understanding his future plans.
