After coming back to the Patriots on somewhat suspicious terms this season, it appears tight end Martellus Bennett has been cut by the team.  

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the team has released the veteran tight end and, in the process, freed up about $6.1 million of cap space.

Bennett, according to an report, was also due a $2 million roster bonus, if he was still on the team by March 16.

The Packers originally signed Bennett to a three-year deal last season, but cut him following a dispute over an injury.

The Pats claimed the pass catching threat off waivers, though he was shut down for the season after a couple of games with the team.

New England could look to resign him to a more team-friendly deal this offseason.
