Patriots Releasing TE Martellus Bennett

​The relationship between the​ New England Patriots and tight end Martellus Bennett is coming to an end for the second time in two years.

The Pats have reportedly decided to release the one-time Pro Bowler after the team picked him up following a messy break up with the Green Bay Packers.

​​Bennett had been on the Patriots in 2016 and won the Super Bowl with them before he signed a free agent deal with the Green Bay Packers in the offseason.

However, things between Bennett and the Packers didn’t go very well. The team ended up releasing Bennett during the season (they also try to recoup money from him), which led him back to New England.

Bennett only played in nine games in 2017. He played seven with the Packers and two with the Patriots before being shut down with an injury.

Now, the 30-year old will have to look for a new home in free agency, after his brother ​Michael found a new home with the Super Bowl champs.

Bennett will likely be signed by a team because he seemingly has something left in the tank.
