Packers discussed surgery with Martellus Bennett, who practiced with Patriots Friday

The Packers had high hopes for Martellus Bennett, who signed a 3-year, $21 million contract with the team.

McCarthy added that he never spoke with Bennett about retirement.

The Packers waived him because of that injury on Wednesday.

Bennett practiced with the Patriots on Friday but then launched into tirade on Instagram against the team that cut him with an injury designation earlier this week.

The only question is if Bennett still has a desire to play anymore.

To clear a roster spot for Bennett, New England released defensive lineman Geneo Grissom.

Bennett spent last season with the Patriots on a one-year deal, catching 55 passes for 701 yards and seven touchdowns while helping them win the Super Bowl. In 16 games for the Patriots previous year, Bennett had 55 receptions for 701 yards and seven touchdowns.

"Martellus with the Patriots, it just seems natural to me", Von Miller said. Third-string tight end Jacob Hollister has just three catches for 37 yards. He did not play in the 30-17 loss to the Detroit Lions on Monday night.

McCarthy said he did not talk to Bennett about retiring, and he wouldn't speculate on whether there was any connection between Bennett's Instagram post, the injury and the team's sagging fortunes without Aaron Rodgers. "You adjust the way you do things, the way you game plan and the way you move forward".

Asked if he didn't believe Bennett was "on the boat", Richard Rodgers said, "I really can't answer that". He caught 24 passes for 233 yards this season but hadn't caught a touchdown pass.
