Patriots bring back former tight end, Martellus Bennett

  • Packers TE Martellus Bennett ruled out Sunday against Bears

The Patriots immediately made room for Bennett by waiving defensive end Geneo Grissom, so Allen and third-string tight end Jacob Hollister stay on the roster for now.

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

Less than 24 hours following the release of Martellus Bennett from the Green Bay Packers, the Pro Bowl tight end has a new home.

Bennett caught a career-high seven touchdown passes with New England last season before signing a three-year, $21 million contract with Green Bay in March.

Following Bennett's release, question marks remain regarding his health status.

During the Packers' bye week, Bennett said on social media that he was "pretty sure" he would retire after this season, then was sidelined with a shoulder injury following the first practice after the bye.

Interested in writing for cover32? That's the injury the Packers contend that Bennett failed to disclose.

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

Bennett was drafted by the Cowboys in 2008.

Bennett gives the Patriots a secondary receiving option at tight end, as No. 2 tight end Dwayne Allen has struggled in the passing game. To everyone who has poured themselves and time into my life and career. He posted 13 grabs for 161 yards and three touchdowns in five games during Gronkowski's absence along with 11 catches for 98 yards in the postseason.

In that sense, there's limited risk for the Patriots, assuming Bennett is healthy and motivated.

Bennett was cut by the Packers to end a freaky situation.
