Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY SportsThe New England Patriots are releasing tight end Martellus Bennett , a league source has informed ESPN NFL insider Field Yates.
Bennett, a product of Texas A&M, was also with the Patriots in 2016, bringing down a career-high seven touchdown passes and serving as an integral part of the offense as he and New England capped off the season with a historic, come-from-behind win over the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl.
In free agency last spring, Bennett joined the Green Bay Packers on a three-year deal, but was ousted in November due to failure to disclose a medical condition designation.
