Packers plan on recouping Martellus Bennett's signing bonus

Packers plan on recouping Martellus Bennett's signing bonus

After the Patriots' 41-16 victory over the Broncos Sunday night, Martellus Bennett related how he wound up back in New England after ripping into the medical staff at Green Bay for what he says was mistreatment of his injured shoulder.

Well, in addition to getting rid of a distraction in the locker room, they can now try to get about $4.2 million of the guaranteed money it gave Bennett back if the league decides that Bennett did, in fact, fail to disclose his injury before signing with Green Bay.

Brady looked Bennett's way often last season, hitting the veteran tight end for 55 receptions totaling 701 yards and seven touchdowns.

And afterward, Bennett was as colorful as ever as he explained his distaste for the way the Green Bay Packers handled his shoulder injury and his gratitude toward the Patriots for giving him another chance. It was a odd place for him to be, given that just days earlier he had been released by the Packers for failing to disclose what appeared to be a serious shoulder injury.

Even then, Bennett told the Pats coach he wanted to think about it some more.

"I think the group of guys on this team couldn't be a better place for me to, with what I'm going through right now, this situation, it couldn't be a better place for me, all the familiar faces and friends and things like that".

Bennett's injury appeared to flare up after Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone.

What doesn't add up is Bennett saying he wanted to have surgery to fix his rotator cuff, but as soon as he was claimed by New England, those plans have all of a sudden changed.

"Even then, it wasn't like, 'Hey, you want to come?' It was like, 'Let me just call you back in a few minutes". It's just like, 'All right, that's how you're going to do it? Bennett took part in the first practice after the bye. And Martellus Bennet was already a postgame talking point following New England's impressive win in Denver on Sunday night. He now only trails Don Shula (347 wins) and George Halas (324). He adds a lot and he is a great player. That's really what it's about.
