BOSTON (AP) Martellus Bennett didn’t think he’d play football again this season after his unexpected and contentious exit from the Green Bay Packers last week.

The way he tells it, he was contemplating taking a desk job or maybe even doing something with Netflix in the hours after he was cut by the Green Bay Packers for what they said was “failing to disclose a physical condition.”

“I was just sitting on a bean bag, literally feeling sorry for myself,” Bennett said of his disagreement with the Packers’ medical staff over a shoulder injury.
