Newly acquired TE Martellus Bennett active for New England

Report Packers aim to reclaim Martellus Bennett's signing bonus

Report Packers aim to reclaim Martellus Bennett's signing bonus

Bennett said quarterback Tom Brady reached out to him and relayed that he was intrigued about Bennett possibly returning to the Patriots, but Bennett wasn't sure what to do.

New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett caught three passes for 38 yards during his team's 41-16 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday, and he discussed his injured shoulder in the aftermath.

It was quite an eventful week for Bennett. But now, reinvigorated with a desire to fight through the injury, the tight end sounds motivated to show Green Bay what they gave up on last week.

Rapoport also reported Bennett suffered a torn rotator cuff and may attempt to play through it now that he is a member of the Patriots even though he said he made a decision to undergo surgery. Did not have surgery. He was claimed by New England on Thursday and was on the practice field with the Patriots on Friday.

"After trying to get [the shoulder surgically] fixed and getting waived, you've got that vengeance in your heart like, 'All right, that's how you're going to do it?"

The supercar also comes equipped with Chevy's first dual fuel direct injection system with supplemental port injection. The new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is here, and it's really not a auto you'd want to get on the wrong side of.

Bennett says he went off anti-inflammatory medicine during the bye week and asked to have it examined his first day back.

Bennett then reportedly told teams not to claim him off waivers because he was going to have shoulder surgery and retire. "So when Bill [Belichick] called and said they claimed me, I was like, 'No f*ckin" way'".

"It's not about, "Could you play?' It's, 'Should you play?' It was one of those things", Bennett explained". "After trying to persuade me to play thru a major injury and me choosing to get surgery. And I told him, and then we had a quick conversation, and I was like, 'Let me think about it, and I will call you back'".

"In my 10 years of being with the Packers organization and having multiple injuries and surgeries, I have never once felt pressure to play in a game", receiver Jordy Nelson, who missed the 2015 season with a torn ACL, said on Twitter.

Bennett had the loudest performance, but Dwayne Allen had his first catch of the season - on his eighth target - for an 11-yard touchdown.
