Bennett, who was released from the Packers Wednesday due to a "failure to report a medical condition", won a Super Bowl last season with the Patriots.
During the Packers' bye week, Bennett said on social media that he was "pretty sure" he would retire after this season, then was sidelined with a shoulder injury following the first practice after the bye.
He didn't play in the 30-17 loss on Monday to the Detroit Lions after being listed as doubtful for the game.
In seven starts for the Packers, however, Bennett racked up just 24 catches for 233 yards and zero scores.
One of the favourite teams to pick him up from the waivers is the Patriots, but now every team has the possibility of picking up one of the more talented tight ends in the National Football League today, despite the fact his production has been that great this season due to injuries.
He owns career totals of 427 catches, 4520 yards and 30 touchdowns. Bennett dropped a few passes, but was an asset in the running game.
Earlier this season, Bennett suggested he was considering retirement after the 2017 season. No corresponding move for Bennett has been announced yet.
New England decided against bringing Bennett back as a free agent this past spring after acquiring fellow tight end Dwayne Allen from the Colts.
"Once I feel like my preparation goes down, I feel like that's when I will walk away". For the time being, his departure leaves the Packers with two tight ends, Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers, on their roster.
