Packers Cut Martellus Bennett With "Failure To Disclose A Medical Condition" Designation

Prior to the injury, Bennett was on pace to catch 55 passes for 534 yards, which would generally be in line with his production over the past two seasons. Teams in playoff contention like the Patriots, Saints, or Steelers might want to take a look. So, should the Patriots make a call and try to bolster their tight end depth by bringing back Bennett? By the afternoon, Bennett had been cut by the Packers.

ESPN reported Bennett was cut for failing to report a medical condition. There's no sense in a team like the Giants, Bengals, or Cardinals paying a 30-year-old tight end to play eight games. Considering the 6-foot-6 Bennett filled in excellently for the injured Gronkowski a year ago and helped the Patriots win a Super Bowl, he seems like the flawless fit. Yes, absolutely. Dwayne Allen has given them very little as a No. 2 tight end, which is a position of heightened importance given Rob Gronkowski's injury history.

Some (me) speculated that Bennett floated the idea of retirement three days before the trade deadline in the hopes that a team with a healthy starting quarterback would throw him a lifeline.
