Former Texas A&M star Martellus Bennett to return to New England Patriots

GREEN BAY WI- JANUARY 8 Jared Cook

The New England Patriots have claimed Martellus Bennett after he was waived by th Green Bay Packers on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Depending on his health, he missed the Packers Week 9 game against the Lions due to "injury", Bennett should slide seamlessly back into the Patriots offense.

The Packers signed him to a three-year, $21 million this offseason, but released him after just seven games.

And now that Gronkowski is healthy, it's hard to envision a reoccurrence of the 77.6 percent snap rate Bennett enjoyed last season, even if the Patriots roll out more two-tight end sets upon his arrival. He caught 24 passes for 233 yards this season but hadn't caught a touchdown pass.

As a result United Kingdom economic growth is seen slowing to 1.3% in 2018 before slumping to 1.1% in the year of Brexit. The country with the lowest growth rate this year will be Italy - 1.5 percent - ahead of an uncertain electoral year.

In order to make room for the Bennett, the Patriots have reportedly released defensive lineman, Geneo Grissom. Bennett dropped a few passes, but was an asset in the running game.

Martellus Bennett had recently indicated that this could be his final National Football League season.

Bennett has already been linked to the Patriots, whom he helped win February's Super Bowl in his lone season with New England.

During the season opener against Seattle, Bennett was one of three players who knelt for the national anthem. Still, there's little reason to doubt the 30-year-old's ability going forward-strange stint in Green Bay aside. NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport also reported the news. For the time being, his departure leaves the Packers with two tight ends, Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers, on their roster.
