Bennett was traded by Chicago to New England prior to the 2016 season and became one of quarterback Tom Brady's main targets when Rob Gronkowski was sidelined for the season after eight games following a back injury. 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. "I don't think it's right to judge that, either", McCarthy said.
He didn't play in the Packers' 30-17 loss on Monday to the Detroit Lions after being listed as doubtful for the game.
The Packers signed him to a three-year, $21 million this offseason, but released him after just seven games. Prior to his release, Bennett also tweeted that this season might be his final in the NFL.More news: Christopher Plummer to replace Kevin Spacey in completed J. Paul Getty biopic

Bennett used his Instagram Story - the same avenue he used to post during the bye week that he was "pretty sure" he would retire after this season - to tell his side of the story. Third-string tight end Jacob Hollister has just three catches for 37 yards.
It remains to be seen when he might be available to play for New England. That's not for me to comment on.
It looks like they will have newly re-acquired tight end Martellus Bennett for this weekend, but wide receiver Chris Hogan ain't looking so good. "I've answered the question for the last time, respectfully". "We know our ultimate goal". He has yet to catch a pass this season. He caught 24 passes for 233 yards this season but hadn't caught a touchdown pass. So they tried to fuck me before they thought I would fuck them.
