"(Expletive) it, let's go ball, '" he said.

Nelson's post comes after Bennett-whom the Packers waived for failing to disclose a medical condition, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN-said Green Bay chose to part ways with him only after he made a decision to undergo surgery on his shoulder (which he hasn't yet).

That's pricey, but New England can release him this offseason without any guaranteed money affecting their future salary cap.

Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal noted Bennett previously instructed his agent not to let teams claim him when he parted ways with the Green Bay Packers because he was going to undergo surgery.

When Bennett left for Green Bay in the offseason, it left Amendola to take over the DJ-ing duties in the Patriots locker room.

"He's a great teammate and he's going to help us out a lot, as he did last year", said receiver Danny Amendola, who has known Bennett for 10 years since they both broke into the league together with the Dallas Cowboys. The Packers opted to cut him, and he went on a long social media rant saying they knew about the injury and wanted him to play through it, but he valued his health and picked surgery.

India's Best Selling Smartphone Gets a Flat Rs
The smartphone with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, is now available at Rs 11,999, down from its regular price of Rs 12,999. The Redmi Note 4 made its debut in India ten months ago, and went on to become the best-selling phone in the country.

For their part, the Patriots seemed to have welcomed Bennett back to New England with open arms. "It couldn't be a better place for me". "At this point, it's nothing else anyone can say to me in my career that could make me feel any way toward myself". "I am enjoying playing here and things like that, so life's good".

Well, no one was stopping him from getting work done on his shoulder after his controversial exit from Green Bay. "I am rubber, and you're glue, and anything you say bounced off me and sticks to you".

He even suited up for the Patriots in Sunday's 41-16 victory over the Denver Broncos. Four plays later, he was on the receiving end of a 5-yard pass. Bennett entered the medical tent on the sideline after the play and didn't return to action until the second half.

One of the Patriots' most unique players from the 2016 season is back.

"I love having Martellus on our team", Tom Brady told reporters Sunday.
