During the Packers' bye week, Bennett said on social media that he was "pretty sure" he would retire after this season, then was sidelined with a shoulder injury following the first practice after the bye. Bennett signed with the Patriots prior to the 2016 season and became a key cog in a championship-winning offense before his brief stint with the Packers this year. The only other Patriots tight end with a reception this season is rookie Jacob Hollister, with three catches.
The sudden release of veteran tight end Martellus Bennett on Wednesday has left several unanswered questions. That led the Patriots to trade for tight end Dwayne Allen of the Indianapolis Colts, a move that hasn't produced the expected results.
And, he would fill in admirably for the oft-injured Rob Gronkowski as well.

Fantasy Impact Bennett was largely a bust this season after high expectations when he chose to join the Packers and Aaron Rodges. Last month, Bennett, on Instagram wrote, "After conversations with my family I'm pretty sure these next eight games will be the conclusion of my National Football League career".
The good news is that once Bennett is healthy, there won't be much of an adjustment period since he's already familiar with the playbook and has a rapport with quarterback Tom Brady.
Former Packers' TE Martellus Bennett claimed on waivers by the New England Patriots, per source. Allen has yet to catch a pass this season. Last year, the prospect of seeing the Patriots deploy the duo of Gronkowski and Bennett was exciting for Patriots fans.
