Martellus Bennett Says Packers Knew About Shoulder Injury Months Before Waiving Him

New England Patriots claim ex-Packers TE Martellus Bennett off waivers Instant Analysis: New England Patriots Bring Back Martellus Bennett

It was certainly shocking when the Packers cut Martellus Bennett earlier this week, but the least-surprising development to follow was that Bennett, who played in New England last season, was claimed by the Patriots.

Bennett said that the Packers were motivated to remove him from their books with the failure to disclose designation when they got anxious that he would end up going on IR and being on their books next season. That day came on Friday, when Bennett took to Instagram to unload on Green Bay for the way the team handled his torn rotator cuff. And he's not happy. Bennett said the Packers cleared him on March 10, when he signed with them. They even gave me an x-ray as well.

"It got worse during the season, specifically against the Cowboys [in Week 5], so I asked to have it checked and we checked it", Bennett said. He said he chose to have surgery on it rather than play through it. Now here we are... After trying to persuade me to play thru a major injury and me choosing to get surgery. Pat McKenzie, didn't make him "feel safe" about his shoulder and lost trust in the doctor after McKenzie's assessment of the shoulder made him skeptical. Not that he was trying to get me to play thru it but the way he was saying things. "I talked to him Tuesday after practice and he [had] a shoulder concern injury". So I got 3 other opinions from doctors who all said I needed to get it fixed.

The Patriots were quick to pick Bennett up off of waivers shortly after his release, and he reportedly passed his physical and practiced with the team on Friday, despite claiming on Instagram that he wanted to undergo surgery while on the Packers.

This statement from Bennett is likely a direct response to any potential financial battle that is upcoming between the Packers and himself. I just kept playing but it got worse. During the bye week, he stopped using anti-inflammatory medication.

"They panicked. Thinking that I was trying to go on the IR and be on their books next year", Bennett wrote.

"I think this all started, obviously, coming out of the bye week", McCarthy told reporters, via ESPN.com. All about money. I get it. When I mentioned that I would possibly retire. But don't lie homie. "You knew wtf was up", Bennett wrote. However, Bennett was at practice with the Patriots on Friday. He is listed as questionable for New England's matchup against Denver on Sunday.
