The Green Bay Packers have released tight end Martellus Bennett on Wednesday. The Packers used the “failure to disclose a medical condition designation,” as their reasoning for the release.

Bennett was in his first-year with the Packers this season. He signed a three-year, $21-million deal with the Packers on March 10.

He joined the Packers after playing last season with the New England Patriots.

Bennett did not play on Monday night, as the Detroit Lions defeated the Packers on Monday Night Football. He was already ruled out this season, according to Packers head coach Mike McCarthy with a shoulder injury.

The Packers will try to recoup part of Bennett’s $4.2 million signing bonus with this designation.

Bennett will now go on waivers. The rest of the league will have until 4 pm on Thursday to put in a claim order for him.

If he goes unclaimed, then he’ll become a free agent to sign with any team.

Bennett, who announced during the Packers bye week that this would “probably” be his final season, probably has already mentally retired. He wouldn’t have said it if he’s already checked out mentally.
