Martellus Bennett: 'Vengeance' in heart after Pack exit

  • Report Packers aim to reclaim Martellus Bennett's signing bonus

The outspoken tight end started the week dealing with a serious injury in Green Bay that may have been career-ending, and finished the week making three catches for 38 yards with the Patriots. Pat McKenzie after Bennett's accusations.

Bennett only played seven snaps but still made his presence felt in his return to the Patriots following a tumultuous stint in Green Bay. In order to get the money back, Green Bay would have to prove that Bennett's injury, a torn rotator cuff, occurred before he signed his contract and that the team was not aware of it.

"It wasn't 'Could you play?"

Bennett says it's not that simple. We had a quick conversation and I was just like, 'Let me think about it and I'll call you back'. "So when Bill [Belichick] called and said they claimed me, I was like, 'No f*ckin" way'". "Then he was like, 'What's going on?' And I told him".

Being the fun guy that he is, the best part of it all?

Italy , who are now ranked 15th in the world, had an ordinary qualification campaign, finishing second in their group. I thank the lads who were with us and, although it wasn't enough, I hope that we gave them something.


Prior to the game, Jacob Hollister's three catches for 37 yards were the entirety of the backup tight ends' production this season. "Clearly Martellus Bennett said, 'I'll play hurt for Tom Brady but I'm not playing hurt for Brett Hundley'". Then the Packers released him and accused him of failing to disclose the injury before he signed as a free agent, which was likely so the franchise could recoup some bonus money.

Bennett also said he doesn't know if he'll indeed retire after this season, which he claimed was a possibility during the end of his run with the Packers. "I talked to six or seven doctors about [my shoulder] and it could go either way". Not that he was trying to get me to play thru it but the way he was saying things.

"After trying to get (the shoulder surgically) fixed and getting waived", Bennett said, "you've got that vengeance in your heart like, 'All right, that's how you're going to do it? [Expletive] it, let's go ball, '" Bennett said, via the Boston Herald. So I got 3 other opinions from doctors who all said I need to get it fixed.

Dr. McKenzie didn't make feel safe and was pushing to play which I thought was weird.
