The Packers had high hopes for Martellus Bennett, who signed a 3-year, $21 million contract with the team.
The tight end, waived by the Packers on Wednesday for failing to disclose an injury, told his side of the story on Instagram.
Bennett claims the Packers were trying to force him to "play thru a major injury". He practiced with the Patriots on Friday.
Bennett was signed to a three-year deal in the offseason to take Rodgers' job.
Mueller has enough evidence to charge Michael Flynn
Also part of Mueller's line of inquiry is the $530,000 Flynn received for consulting work on behalf of Turkey in the fall of 2016. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has gathered enough evidence to charge President Trump 's ex-National Security Advisor Michael T.
Bennett had 24 receptions and 233 yards in the seven games he played for the Packers this season.
"Martellus with the Patriots, it just seems natural to me", Von Miller said. "You look at the adjustment you make with Aaron lost at quarterback and having three veteran tight ends on a roster, now you're down to two".
Packers coach Mike McCarthy acknowledged he advised Bennett seek additional opinions about his shoulder injury.
Before he was cut, Bennett did not play in the Packer's 30-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football this week and was not expected to start against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. And because he's considering retiring after the season, he may not suit up for another game in the NFL. These next games are for you. Everything leading up to that, I can't really comment on it.
