Oh, so that's why they waived him.
When the Green Bay Packers released tight end Martellus Bennett, it was presumably due to his age and lack of production, though we'd all heard the same weird spin zone about an undisclosed injury. As expected, the New England Patriots immediately snapped him up off waivers on Thursday.
It was soon revealed that Bennett was cut from the Packers because of a torn rotator cuff that he may have to play through, if the Patriots are so keen. If not, there's still a chance he lands on IR prior to the end of the season.
