"I chose my health over my 'team.' They chose money over me", Bennett wrote.

Bennett had the loudest performance, but Dwayne Allen had his first catch of the season - on his eighth target - for an 11-yard touchdown.

Green Bay parted ways with Bennett, claiming that the tight end, who signed a three-year, $21 million deal with the team in the offseason, failed to disclose his shoulder was badly injured.

After Sunday's game, Bennett said that he told teams not to pick him up off of waivers, but was ultimately talked back into playing by Bill Belichick.

According to Robert Klemko of The MMQB, Bennett said, "It's not about could you play, it's should you play". After trying to persuade me to play thru a major injury and me choosing to get surgery. And then Belichick even convinced him to practice before the Patriots flew to Denver.

Bennett insisted he had planned to have surgery and had his agent tell teams not to claim him. "Right now, I'm just like, (expletive) it". He says that the Packers' decision to cut him made him angry, so that's why he's now able to play in New England.

Bennett's injury appeared to flare up after Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone. It was like one of those things I felt I should get fixed. "After you get waived, you've got that vengeance in your heart". "Last week, I thought I was going to be on IR, so it's just been a surreal week for me". "[Expletive] it, let's go ball, '" Bennett said, via the Boston Herald.

In addressing the criticism he has faced in the past from former employers and others, Bennett said that his family is the only group of people whose opinion really matters to him - and he said it in the way that only he could.

After being waived, Bennett was claimed off the wire by the Patriots, where he is listed as questionable for the team's game against the Denver Broncos this weekend.

On Sunday night, Bennett took the field for the first time with 5:18 remaining in the first quarter, and on his first play, he caught a short pass from Brady and ran for a 27-yard gain.
