Ex-Patriot Martellus Bennett ‘pretty sure' he'll retire at end of season


Former Patriot Martellus Bennett said goodbye to New England last offseason, signing a three-year deal with the Green Bay Packers.

But now is he ready to say goodbye to football altogether?

In an Instagram story, Bennett sounded like someone who is considering calling it a career.

“After conversations with my family I’m pretty sure these next 8 games will be the conclusion of my NFL career,” the post reads. “To everyone who has poured themselves and time into my life and career. These next games are for you. Thank you.”

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Bennett would owe the Packers $4.2 million of the $6.3 million signing bonus he was given when he signed in March.

The 30-year-old has 233 yards on 24 catches and no touchdowns with the Packers this season. In his only season with the Patriots, Bennett had 799 yards on 66 receptions and 7 touchdowns in 19 games.
