While Martellus Bennett’s departure from Green Bay and subsequent transition to the Patriots has raised plenty of eyebrows, the league has no plans of investigating for foul play.
During a conference call today, league spokesman Joe Lockhart was asked specifically if the league had any issue with the Bennett case, and if it was going to look into the matter, and he emphatically replied: “No!”
The Packers released Bennett last week under a “failure to disclose physical condition” designation. One day later, the Patriots claimed him off waivers.
Bennett claimed his departure from Green Bay followed a disagreement between him and Packers team doctor Patrick McKenzie.
