We knew this was inevitable. The Green Bay Packers are going after a big chunk of the signing bonus they handed out to tight end Martellus Bennett when they signed him.
The team has filed paperwork to get back $4.2 million of the $6.3 million they gave Bennett when they signed him to a three-year, $21 million deal back in March.
The Packers released Bennett back in November with a failure to disclose injury designation. Bennett complained about a shoulder injury at the time. He claimed the Packers were trying to force him to play.
Frankly, we didn’t really care if he played or not. The guy dropped more balls than he caught.
And then, it was a miracle! Bennett was claimed by the New England Patriots after being released by the Packers and played in two games for them.
He was finally shut down and placed on injured reserve last week. We are assuming that move was because the Patriots realized he sucks rather than having anything to do with an actual injury.
And so, the Martellus Bennett era in Green Bay will go down like this: Martellus Bennett, while initially enjoyable, ultimately proved himself to be a human sack of feces.
And if his threat to retire is actually valid, then he’s going to go out like a punk. Should have went out after you won the Super Bowl and before you quit on your new team like a bitch.
You fucking bitch.
