The Packers released Bennett yesterday after he failed to disclose an injury to the team. No one knows how he got injured, but he was already ruled out for Green Bay's game against the Bears this weekend.
Earlier this season, he alluded to this season being his last despite signing a three-year deal with Green Bay last offseason. With the Patriots, he now has the chance to retire as a Super Bowl champion after winning it with them last year.
Last season with New England, Bennett had one of the best seasons of his career. He caught 55 passes for 701 yards and seven touchdowns, a career-high. Now, once again, the Patriots will employ the best 1-2 punch at tight end in the NFL provided Bennett and Gronk both stay healthy.
To make room for Bennett on the roster, the Patriots are waiving defensive end Geneo Grissom.
