One day after the Green Bay Packers cut him, the New England Patriots picked up tight end Martellus Bennett off waivers, according to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter.

Bennett was released by the Packers on Wednesday afternoon after seven disappointing games with a failure to disclose an injury designation.

His release comes hours after Packers coach Mike McCarthy ruled out Bennett for the second straight week because of a shoulder injury.

In claiming Bennett, the Patriots inherit the three-year, $21 million contract that he had signed with the Packers.

When the 2016 season ended, the Patriots seemed content to move on from Bennett, who was an unrestricted free agent. Allen - a solid locker-room presence and blocker - doesn't have a catch through eight games.

While it remains to be seen how that ailment will affect Bennett's availability going forward, scooping him up now is a classic Patriots move.

Martellus Bennett had recently indicated that this could be his final National Football League season.

During the season opener against Seattle, Bennett was one of three players who knelt for the national anthem. 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. "I think that will happen before my body gives out". Bennett caught two passes for 17 yards from Rodgers's replacement, Brett Hundley, then revealed his thoughts about possible retirement during the team's Week 8 bye.
