Packers release Martellus Bennett, claim he failed to disclose medical condition

Packers release Martellus Bennett, claim he failed to disclose medical condition”

Early Wednesday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy ruled out tight end Martellus Bennett ahead of his team's game with the Bears on Sunday. "To everyone that has poured themselves and time into my life and career".

Martellus Bennett won't get the chance to play the Packers' remaining games this season "for you", those who made his National Football League career possible, as he wrote in a social media post last week announcing his potential retirement. "There's a number of opinions things he's working through". Bennett was released with a "Failure to Disclose Physical Condition" designation, which is surely connected to his aforementioned shoulder injury.

Bennett signed a three-year, $21 million contract with Green Bay in March. For his career, Bennett has 4,520 yards and 30 touchdowns which ranks him tenth and 13th respectively among active players at his position. Bennett started the team's first seven games and caught 24 passes for 233 yards, but he was inactive because of the shoulder injury for Monday night's loss to Detroit.

Bennett's agent, Kennard McGuire, declined comment. Bennett had base salaries of $900,000 this season, $3.6 million (plus a $2 million roster bonus) in 2018 and $5.65 million in 2019.

Bennett, who won Super Bowl LI with the Patriots in February after one of his most productive seasons as a pro, gave a halfhearted indication he would retire at the end of the season in a message he posted to his Instagram story during the bye week.

He is the brother of Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett.

"Once I feel like my preparation goes down, I feel like that's when I will walk away. I am part of the conversation". If the veteran tight end is healthy, there should be a substantial market for him. Both have had 50-catch seasons.
