"Martellus Bennett will not practice this week, he will not be available for the game", coach Mike McCarthy said before Wednesday's practice. He endured a shoulder injury that kept him out of Monday's game against the Detroit Lions. The Packers had signed Bennett to a three-year, $21 million deal in March. It ended Wednesday in weird fashion, as the Packers cut the veteran tight end and set the stage for recouping some of the money they clearly feel they wasted on him.
Martellus Bennett's time with the Green Bay Packers was brief - and extremely disappointing. Per ESPN, the team is positioned to file a grievance to reclaim the prorated $4.2 million remaining on his $8 million signing bonus.
The move to cut the 30-year-old comes after Bennett was ruled out to play for the second week in a row.

During the Packers' bye week, Bennett said that he believed this year would be his last in the NFL.
Asked about his sudden desire to leave the game, Bennett was even more vague. He had recorded 24 catches over seven games in Green Bay. They didn't give him one, and, concerned about his locker room presence, traded him a year later.
He seemed to find a comfort zone in Green Bay initially, hitting it off with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, promoting his off-the-field endeavors (children's books, smart-phone apps and artwork with the Imagination Agency), and expressing his views on politics and social issues.

Martellus Bennett won't get the chance to play the Packers' remaining games this season "for you", those who made his National Football League career possible, as he wrote in a social media post last week announcing his potential retirement.
The Packers will look to veterans Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers to serve as the top tight ends in their offense moving forward.
