Bennett goes off on Packers, team doctor in Instagram posts

Per Rapoport, the Green Bay Packers waived him due to the torn rotator cuff.

The 30-year-old then sat out practice Wednesday and was listed as having a shoulder injury as Green Bay began preparations for its game Sunday at Chicago. According to Demovsky, by saying Bennett failed to disclose an injury, the Packers could try to recoup some of the unamortized portion of Bennett's $6.3 million signing bonus.

For Bennett, it means a return to New England, where he won a Super Bowl last season.

During the Packers' bye week he indicated on an Instagram post that he would likely retire after this season. He also said he gave the Packers weekly reports in which he alerted them to concerns about his shoulder.

Questions persisted all week in the Packers locker room about whether Bennett quit on the team after quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with a shoulder injury.

Coach Mike McCarthy leaned heavily on Bennett, who played on 83 percent of snaps.

"They tried to f-k over me".

With Green Bay, he hauled in 24 catches for 233 yards and no touchdowns. So I got 3 other opinions from doctors who all said I need to get it fixed.

"The last medical conversation I was involved with in regards to Marty, they were talking about scheduling surgery", McCarthy said. Everything leading up to that, I can't really comment on it.

In the offseason, the Patriots traded a 2017 fourth-round pick to the Indianapolis Colts for Dwayne Allen and a 2017 sixth-round draft pick as a replacement for Bennett.

Rodgers caught 58 passes in 2015 before ceding time last season to then-starter Jared Cook.

"Martellus with the Patriots, it just seems natural to me", Von Miller said.
