Patriots notebook: Outspoken Martellus Bennett returns to lineup

Kevin C. Cox

The Martellus Bennett experience is back in Foxborough.

The New England Patriots claimed Martellus Bennett off waivers on Thursday, and on Sunday night he made a couple of big plays during New England's 41-16 ass-kicking of the "explosive" Denver Broncos...which is pretty weird considering, just two days ago, Bennett said he was too injured to play football.

It was quite an eventful week for Bennett. The tight end, who the Green Bay Packers waived on Wednesday, is dealing with a shoulder injury, which requires surgery.

Rapoport also reported Bennett suffered a torn rotator cuff and may attempt to play through it now that he is a member of the Patriots even though he said he chose to undergo surgery. When Bill called me after they claimed me, at first I told my agent to tell no teams to claim me because I was still trying to get the surgery. Did not have surgery.


Bennett did pass a physical with the Patriots, although the team's injury report still listed him as "questionable". And then after trying to get it fixed and getting waived, you just get that vengeance in your heart. "Then [expletive] it. Let's go ball'". 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.

"[Martellus] obviously had been in the system for a year", Bill Belichick said after the game Sunday. Not that he was trying to get me play thru it but the way he was saying things. "We had a quick conversation and I was just like, 'Let me think about it and I'll call you back.' Even then, it wasn't like, 'Hey, you want to come?' It was like, 'Let me just call you back in a few minutes".

After the game, Bennett reiterated that his shoulder is injured, telling reporters that he went to six or seven doctors seeking opinions on whether he should have season-ending surgery. He played in seven games before a shoulder injury became the center point of his departure from Green Bay.

"I talked to him Tuesday after practice, and he had a shoulder concern injury".
