Contract talks with Packers, TE Jared Cook break off

Contract talks with Packers, TE Jared Cook break off

Bennett wore number 88 with the Patriots last season, but doesn't believe that number is now available with the Packers.

But Bennett should be more than capable of making up for Cook's production on a team with annual Super Bowl aspirations.

Robert Griffin III was released after one flawed season with the Cleveland Browns, who remain in search of a quarterback to turn around their once-proud franchise. He's played in 31 total games. He turned that season into a payday with a former NFC North rival, as he has supplanted Cook as the primary tight end target for Rodgers in the Green Bay offense.

"I wanted another chance to make a run at it", Bennett told Packers.com in an interview. He has become popular (some might say polarizing) among fans and media for his outspoken personality and willingness to speak his mind on everything from NFL policies to national politics and other issues.

Hyde has been a four-year starter at Green Bay since being selected in the fifth-round from Iowa in the 2013 draft.

After eight years, Julius Peppers is returning home to play for the Carolina Panthers.

Thompson has been criticized for rarely signing any free agents, although his rare free-agent signings like Charles Woodson, Ryan Pickett, Julius Peppers and Cook have worked out well. The Packers could certainly use his help in the passing game; to put things in perspective, Bennett caught nearly as many passes as both Cook and Richard Rodgers combined last season and easily outpaced that duo in touchdown catches.

Aaron Rodgers has a new toy.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Bennett will be teaming up with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay in 2017 in what should be one of the most dominant QB/TE duos in the NFL. He appeared in all 32 contests with six starts over the past two seasons, opening games at both tackle positions and at right guard. He left Ithaca as a 300-pound All-American tackle with 40 games and 20 starts under his belt.
