Martellus Bennett‘s time in Green Bay is over.

The Packers cut Bennett today, Field Yates of ESPN reports. The Packers used the failed to disclose a medical condition designation on Bennett, who didn’t play last week and wasn’t expected to play this week because of a shoulder injury.

Bennett hasn’t been much of a factor this season, with 24 catches for 233 yards. The $6.3 million signing bonus the Packers paid Bennett now looks like a major mistake for a team that doesn’t usually make free agency mistakes. It’s possible that the Packers will try to recoup some of that signing bonus, depending on the nature of the alleged undisclosed medical condition.
Bennett has said he plans to retire after this season, so it’s possible he has played his last game. He will now be subject to waivers, so if some team wants him and he wants to keep playing, he could be claimed tomorrow and play for another team as soon as his shoulder is healthy.

I did not follow the off season but what was TT's problem with Jared Cook? Cook signed a 2 year, $12.2 million dollar contract with the Raiders. TT wouldn't pay that but he give Bennett a $6.3 million signing bonus? Madness.

The local radio guys said it's a bad parting and the Packers are going after the signing bonus. your post talks about a shoulder injury. I would have bet money it was in the hands. Dude couldn't catch anything that hit them.

Well,Its obvious now that Cook was the better choice. I thought he would have been resigned. Letting T.Hill QB not being retained & keeping Callahan was a major error imo.

Well he can view it as a positive if he can get with a playoff team. Packers are going nowhere fast and TT knows it.
