After sitting out due to a shoulder injury and being declared out for next week's matchup against Chicago, the Packers have chose to part ways with veteran tight end Martellus Bennett.

General manager Ted Thompson announced the move on Wednesday after practice.

Bennett was signed to a three-year, $21 million contract in the offseason.

Meanwhile, Bennett will hit waivers, where another team can claim him if it so chooses.

Bennett signed with the Packers as an unrestricted free agent last off-season and started seven games.

Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga will be out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL, ESPN has confirmed. McCarthy said last week that Bennett was still being evaluated by doctors. When Bennett returned from the bye, he offered only a one-word explanation for what led him to that decision: "Life", he said. Now, the Packers can try to get a refund on all of Bennett's 2017 pay, which is roughly $8 million. He took part in the first practice after the Packers' bye week but hasn't been on the field since then. The Packers' other two tight ends, Richard Rodgers and Lance Kendricks, have a total of 12 catches this season. By the afternoon, Bennett had been cut by the Packers. That day, Bennett left the locker room telling reporters he wouldn't be talking with them because there was "nothing to talk about".

Meanwhile, a number of his now ex-teammates are wondering what went awry - and whether Bennett quit on them as soon as they lost two-time NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers to an October 15 broken right collarbone. At 4-4, Green Bay is in the middle of a playoff race, and if the team thought Bennett could help secure a postseason spot, it probably would not have let him go for a few million dollars in savings.
