Packers TE Martellus Bennett ruled out Sunday against Bears

Early Wednesday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy ruled out tight end Martellus Bennett ahead of his team's game with the Bears on Sunday.

Bennett had been battling a shoulder injury. By the afternoon, Bennett had been cut by the Packers.

The veteran had hinted on his Instagram Story on October 28 that he is leaning toward retiring at the end of the season after a 10-year career that included stints with the Cowboys, Giants, Bears and Patriots before landing in Green Bay.

The Packers have two other tight ends on the roster in Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers.

Martellus Bennett's time with the Green Bay Packers was brief - and extremely disappointing.

Bennett was signed to a three-year, $21 million contract in the offseason. He did not play Monday night against the Lions. Bennett practiced on Tuesday after the bye last week before going on the injury report with a shoulder injury.

Marshall introduced the state's " bathroom bill " and once referred to himself as the state's " chief homophobe ". Roem is a journalist who worked for nine years reporting for the Gainesville Times and Price William Times .

Asked about his sudden desire to leave the game, Bennett was even more vague.

Bennett had 24 receptions for 233 yards no touchdowns in his short stint in Green Bay. That day, Bennett left the locker room telling reporters he wouldn't be talking with them because there was "nothing to talk about".

He seemed to find a comfort zone in Green Bay initially, hitting it off with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, promoting his off-the-field endeavors (children's books, smart-phone apps and artwork with the Imagination Agency), and expressing his views on politics and social issues.

Bennett was the Packers' biggest free-agent signing during the National Football League offseason.

But if another team is looking to sign him off waivers, or once he becomes a free agent after 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, identifying what's ailing him will be just as important as understanding his future plans. "If Marty's not, the other guys are ready to go".
