NFL Rumors: Patriots' Martellus Bennett Expected To Play Sunday Night

Over seven games, Bennett caught 24 passes for 233 yards. "[Expletive] it, let's go ball, '" Bennett said, via the Boston Herald. And then after trying to get it fixed and getting waived, you just get that vengeance in your heart. Patriots coach Bill Belichick did it anyway.

The Patriots took control of the Broncos early and now have a firm hold on the division and conference race. The veteran was cut by the Green Bay Packers with a "failure to disclose an injury" designation.

Bennett said he still doesn't know what he's going to do, but he thinks he should still get the surgery.

Martellus Bennett practiced once with the Patriots after the team claimed him on Thursday. This issue between the Packers and Bennett still isn't over, as the team could look to reclaim part of all of his salary from his time with the team due to failing to disclose a medical issue. "So when Bill (Belichick) called and said they claimed me, I was like, 'No (expletive) way'".

"I don't think it was easy for him, but he put a lot of work in", Brady said, via He is listed as questionable for the Patriots' game Sunday night against Denver. You're just kind of like, 'All right, that's how you're going to do it? Not that he was trying to get me to play thru it but the way he was saying things. The former Green Bay Packer got in only one practice, but apparently, that was enough as he played knows the playbook well after spending the 2016 season in New England. Packer players didn't have much to say about Bennett's Instagram post, but they did show support for McKenzie.

The Packers had high hopes for Martellus Bennett, who signed a 3-year, $21 million contract with the team during the offseason. "They're the ones that go out and make the plays, and they did it (last night)". Brady went to Bennett as a safety valve for his first catch of the night Sunday, and indicator of the report they had built up from previous year. Most of his yardage came on a 27-yard catch-and-run during the first quarter. His immediate future is still up in the air, but if he does play with New England, he will look to find his form from past year when he tallied a career-high seven touchdown catches with the Patriots.

The NFL record is 70, set by Vinny Testaverde.
