The Packers waived him on Wednesday with the designation that he failed to disclose a physical condition. Bennett was added to the injury report after the bye last week with a shoulder injury. He did not play in the 30-17 loss to the Detroit Lions on Monday night.
Bennett was a key figure in the Patriots' Super Bowl-winning season in 2016, as he ranked second on the team in receiving yards (701) and first in touchdown catches (seven).
However, Bennett struggled to click with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, catching 20 passes for 194 yards and no touchdowns before Green Bay's most important player suffered a broken collarbone in Week 6. Allen - a solid locker-room presence and blocker - doesn't have a catch through eight games. In November, Blount walked off the field early during a Steelers game in which he did not receive a carry, and the team quickly released him.

Martellus Bennett had recently indicated that this could be his final National Football League season. Still, there's little reason to doubt the 30-year-old's ability going forward-strange stint in Green Bay aside. Bennett had base salaries of $900,000 this season, $3.6 million (plus a $2 million roster bonus) in 2018 and $5.65 million in 2019.
Martellus Bennett is headed back to New England.
"I think when I stop loving the preparation is when I will give it up because that's the most important part, whether that's working out or watching film and studying and taking notes", Bennett said in camp. 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.
