Patriots will waive Geneo Grissom to make room for Martellus Bennett

10 November 2017, 12:26 | Andy Ferguson

Green Bay have released tight end Martellus Bennett

NFL teams could compete to sign Martellus Bennett due to his cheap contract

Bennett battled a shoulder injury that forced him to miss Green Bay's Week 9 defeat to the Detroit Lions.

"After conversations with my family I'm pretty sure these next eight games will be the conclusion of my National Football League career", he wrote. It's possible one of those players could be waived once Bennett is healthy and ready to play.

Fantasy Impact Bennett was largely a bust this season after high expectations when he made a decision to join the Packers and Aaron Rodges.

Before he was cut, Bennett did not play in the Packer's 30-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football this week and was not expected to start against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. "He's going through different opinions, so we're still collecting information".

Through seven games in 2017, Bennett recorded 24 receptions for 233 yards with the Packers.

China's Xi fetes Trump on first day of Beijing trip
The White House is banking on Trump's personal rapport with Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) to drive the negotiations. Cui says China judged that Trump was not really interested in changing the status quo among China, the USA and Taiwan.


By cutting Bennett with that designation, Green Bay has paved the way to file a grievance to reclaim the $4.2m in remaining prorated signing-bonus money on the 30-year-old's contract.

Bennett does come with some concerns.

Bennett had a drop in Minnesota on the same play quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone. He is the brother of the Seahawks' Michael Bennett, who has sat during the anthem.

"Just a sign of unity", Bennett said of sitting during the anthem. "I mean, really, to tie all that together, you're asking me to get inside somebody else's feelings, conversation, more on a personal level". Both have had 50-catch seasons. Allen, however, has not recorded a catch in eight games this season, and in part because of that, the Patriots' offense has struggled in the red zone.
