Patriots TE Martellus Bennett DESTROYS the Packers on Instagram


The Green Bay Packers cut tight end Martellus Bennett, who was picked up on waivers by his old team, the New England Patriots. It then came out that he has a torn rotator cuff and labrum.

Bennett is furious with Green Bay for the way they handled it. He wrote a long message on Instagram just laying into them and blaming them for the whole thing. Here is the entire message, per Aaron Nagler of Packers News, and it’s a heck of a read:

“The Packers examined my shoulder on my visit March 10 and cleared it. They even gave me an xray as well. It got worse during the season, specifically against the Cowboys so I asked to have it checked and we checked it. After a few days of contemplating to play with it or get surgery, I chose surgery. Now here we are…

“They tried to f-ck over me. Dr. McKenzie trying to cover his own ass. After trying to persuade me to play thru a major injury and me choosing to get surgery.

“They have access to all my medical records. My shoulder wasn’t where it is now at the beginning of the season. I f-cked it up playing for the Packers.

“Dr. McKenzie didn’t make feel safe and was pushing to play which I thought was weird. Not that he was trying to get me to play thru it but the way he was saying things. I didn’t trust him. So I got 3 other opinions from doctors who all said I need to get it fixed. So I decided to do that. And they decided to waive me with some bullsh-t excuse. Failure disclose.

“Every week we do a body evaluation sheet in the weight and pretty much every week I circled my shoulder. I just kept playing but it got worse.

“During the bye week I got off anti inflammatories to clean my system and could really feel the pain. So I asked to examine it first day back in. And that’s when we found out it was really f-cked up.

They knew.”

So far, it does not appear that the Packers have responded. It will be very interesting to see what they have to say, and it will also be intriguing to see if Bennett can play at all for the Patriots.
