Packers cut former Bears TE Martellus Bennett

Packers cut former Bears TE Martellus Bennett

Bennett was ruled out for the Packers' game at the Bears on Sunday, ostensibly before the team made the decision to cut him.

Martellus Bennett's brief stint with the Green Bay Packers is at a premature end.

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

Bennett was the Packers' biggest free-agent signing during the National Football League offseason.

However, it's still an unusual situation in Green Bay, and it'll be interesting to see how things play out over the next couple of months.

Bennett is now subject to waivers.

Bennett is added to the list of Packers out against Chicago, including safety Morgan Burnett (groin), quarterback Aaron Rodgers (out until at least mid-December, shoulder) and tackle Bryan Bulaga (out for the year, knee).

The Packers have two other tight ends on the roster in Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers.

Meanwhile, a number of his now ex-teammates are wondering what went awry - and whether Bennett quit on them as soon as they lost two-time NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers to an October 15 broken right collarbone. He had 24 catches for 233 yards. He signed a three-year contract for $21 million dollars to join them this year. Bennett practiced on Tuesday after the bye last week before going on the injury report with a shoulder injury.

With a Chicago-based family and a passion for art and creativity, the 30-year-old Bennett was asked during training camp if he had considered retiring after winning a Super Bowl with New England last season. They gave him a $6.3 million signing bonus. "So if Marty is there, great".
