That's what the Green Bay Packers received from tight end Martellus Bennett this season before waiving the 10-year veteran on Wednesday. It's a timeshare that resulted in Kendricks catching two passes 32 yards and Rodgers making one reception for five yards in Monday's 30-17 loss to the Lions. Bennett caught 55 passes for 701 yards and a career-high seven touchdowns in 16 games, and he was a valued blocker from wire to wire despite dealing with ankle, knee and shoulder injuries.

But his sudden disappearance after Rodgers' injury led multiple players to wonder whether Bennett quit on them in the wake of the quarterback's injury.

In October, Bennett took to Instagram to write that he's considering retiring from the National Football League after the 2017 season. The veteran tight end hasn't been on the field for the Packers since he publicly announced that this season will likely be his last in the NFL.

After being one of the biggest free agency acquisitions last offseason, Martellus Bennett is done in Green Bay.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Packers could argue that, given the undisclosed pre-existing injury, Bennett's entire contract is void, which could allow the team to get back some or all of the $8 million they've already paid Bennett. These next games are for you. McCarthy said Bennett was in Green Bay on Tuesday meeting with the medical staff.

That answer would indicate Bennett never mentioned the shoulder injury until after that practice.

The Packers released the Pro Bowl tight end. Why? Said another: "It's just weird".

As for the Packers, they will be rolling with Richard Rodgers and Lance Kendricks at tight end. His replacement, Dwayne Allen, doesn't have a catch on six targets, and Tom Brady has been reluctant to look his way all season.
