The Green Bay Packers waived tight finish Martellus Bennett with a failure to reveal a medical situation designation earlier this week. We now know the character of that situation.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday on Good Morning Football that Bennett is coping with a torn rotator cuff, per sources knowledgeable of the harm.
Per Rapoport, it is unclear when the harm occurred after he signed a three-year $21 million this offseason — whether or not it pbaded off earlier than coaching camp, throughout, after — and the tight finish didn’t disclose the severity of the harm.
Bennett was claimed off waivers by the New England Patriots on Thursday. Rapoport reported the tight finish will endure a bodily Friday.
There are a number of paths the Patriots can take relying on the end result of the bodily: Bennett does not move, and the Pats toss him again on waivers. New England places him on injured reserve and retains the ultimate two years of his contract (none of which is badured after this yr). Or Bennett may move the bodily and attempt to play by means of the harm.
The query for the Packers is whether or not the group will go after any of Bennett’s signing bonus cash because of the failure to reveal declare.
