Packers cut TE Martellus Bennett with failure to disclose physical condition designation

The Green Bay Packers have cut tight end Martellus Bennett with the failure to disclose a medical condition designation, the team announced Wednesday.

By cutting Bennett with that designation, it sets up the Packers’ case for a grievance to reclaim the $4.2 million in remaining prorated signing bonus money.

Bennett is now subject to waivers. All 31 other teams have until 4 p.m. ET Thursday to submit a claim on him. If he does not get claimed, he becomes a free agent and can sign with any team at any time after that.

Packers’ Bulaga done for year with knee injury

Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga will be out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL, ESPN has confirmed.

Bennett’s release comes hours after Packers coach Mike McCarthy ruled out Bennett for this week because of a shoulder injury. McCarthy said last week that Bennett was still being evaluated by doctors.

The veteran tight end hasn’t played since he announced during the Packers’ bye week that he was “pretty sure” this would be his last
