Kind of odd that Green Bay put Marty on injured reserve with a concussion supposedly so bad that it might jeopardize his season now all of the sudden he's back with the Pats practicing with the team. Just more shady dealings coming out of New Beanland.
I thought it was Bennett's shoulder that was injured, GB's Dr wanted him to play but Bennett got 3 second opinions that all said surgery was needed. Now I heard all this on a Boston sports radio program today, also Bennett tweeted that this was most likely his last season, he seemed to loose interest when Rodger's went down but miraculously Bennett was at Patriot's practice today and may suit up for Sunday "Shady" dealings from NE, how's that? GB put him on waivers, NE made an offer, any other team could have also, can't blame Bennett for wanting to play for a winning franchise and TB12.
Well, this was office rumor sports talk on Friday and if Bennetts injury is just a shoulder and not a concussion as reported by my co-worker than that was an uninformed, erroneous post on my part. Being a long time football fan I used to follow what has been going on around the NFL and college levels but this year have not followed closely or even at all the last few weeks which obviously has affected my BS Pick'em this season...
There is still something fishy with him. This is him on Instagram talking about why the Packers shouldn't have released him for "failure to disclose a physical condition":
"The packers examined my shoulder on my visit March 10 and cleared it," he wrote. "They even gave me an xray as well. It got worse during the season, specifically against the Cowboys so I asked to have it checked out and we checked it. After a few days of contemplating to play with it or get surgery, I chose surgery. Now here we are ..."
He said he chose surgery. So why did he sign with NE, pass his physical, and is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game in Denver?
