Green Bay have released tight end Martellus Bennett

Martellus Bennett's short stay in Green Bay is over

Green Bay waived him with the designation of failure to disclose a medical condition, which they hope will help them recoup the remaining $4.2 million on his signing bonus. In 16 games with the Patriots last season, Bennett amassed 51 catches for 701 yards and seven touchdowns.

Bennett signed a three-year, $21 million contract with the Packers this offseason.

For Bennett, it means a return to New England, where he won a Super Bowl last season.

The 30-year-old veteran had just 24 receptions in seven games with the Packers but had not played since October 22 - the week before Green Bay's bye week. Prior to arriving in New England ahead of last season, the seasoned pass catcher spent time with the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Chicago Bears along the way.

Earlier this season, Bennett stated as well on social media that he was strongly considering this season to be his last season in the National Football League as well, which might encourage some more teams to pick him up knowing he's not committed to playing for them next season.

It seems that Apple began assembling a team to work on AR-related projects a couple of years ago, Bloomberg reported in March. Engineers are also prototyping a number of apps, including mapping, texting, virtual meeting rooms, and 360-degree video.

And, he would fill in admirably for the oft-injured Rob Gronkowski as well.

There's also a possibility that Bennett hangs up his cleats after this season.

The New England Patriots are bringing an old friend back into the fold.

Instead, the Green Bay Packers coach called it "an injury situation". These next games are for you.

The bottom line is this: The Patriots just improved their team and Bennett, assuming good health, just landed in a situation that should be more to his liking. When Bennett was traded to the Patriots, in 2016, everyone seemed excited for the Gronk-Bennett combo.
