Martellus Bennett told teams not to claim him off waivers

Martellus Bennett, a Packer mere days ago, could well play for the Patriots Sunday night

Bennett had a mere 233 receiving yards and zero touchdowns in seven games with Green Bay. You're like, 'All right, that's how you're going to do it? "Let's go, '" he added.

"It wasn't where I was, it was just about the injury", he said. When Bill called and said they claimed me, I was like, 'No (expletive) way.' Then he was like, 'What's going on?' And I told him and I was like, he was like, we had a quick conversation and I was just like, 'Let me think about it and I'll call you back'. Bennett took some time to think on it, then chose to delay his planned shoulder surgery to rejoin the Patriots.

Bennett ultimately ended up back with New England after originally signing with the heralded franchise ahead of last season.

Rapoport also reported Bennett suffered a torn rotator cuff and may attempt to play through it now that he is a member of the Patriots even though he said he chose to undergo surgery. Belichick's call changed Bennett's mind. "I mean, I know you guys are thankful to have him back just for his quotes". He played in seven games before a shoulder injury became the center point of his departure from Green Bay.

According to Robert Klemko of The MMQB, Bennett said, "It's not about could you play, it's should you play". Four plays later, he was on the receiving end of a 5-yard pass. Bennett entered the medical tent on the sideline after the play and didn't return to action until the second half.

"I love having Martellus on our team", Tom Brady told reporters Sunday.

Martellus Bennett suited up for the Patriots Sunday night, less than a week after being waived by the Packers. Different guys came through in different situations, stepped up and made plays when we needed plays and we got contributions from a lot of different people. That raises a ton of questions about his injury and exactly why he really wanted to end his season in Green Bay.

The NFL record is 70, set by Vinny Testaverde.
