Mike McCarthy not tying Martellus Bennett retirement plan to release

Packers TE Martellus Bennett ruled out Sunday against Bears

Former Packers' TE Martellus Bennett claimed on waivers by the New England Patriots, per source.

The Packers waived Bennett with a "failure to diagnose physical condition" designation, and the Patriots, who were among the lowest in the pecking order, snagged him. He was added to the injury report with a shoulder injury after the Packers' recent bye week.

Irish rail strike to hit cross-border services
Unions had sought annual pay increases of about 3.75 per cent - similar to the rises secured by workers at Dublin Bus and Luas after strikes a year ago .

Bennett thrived in New England last season, catching 55 passes for 701 yards and a career-high seven touchdowns.

If this feels reminiscent of when the Patriots somehow wound up with LeGarrette Blount in 2014 after he had been signed away as a free agent by the Pittsburgh Steelers, you're not having deja vu.

And Elizabeth Guzman and Hala Ayala both defeated Republican incumbents to become the first Latina women elected to the chamber. Kathy Tran, a refugee from Vietnam, became the first Asian American woman elected to the Virgina House of Delegates.

Spending last season with the Patriots, the 30-year-old notably won a Super Bowl title before ultimately making his way out of town via free agency. Allen, however, has not recorded a catch in eight games this season, and in part because of that, the Patriots' offense has struggled in the red zone.

Bennett will join a tight end group which now includes tight ends Rob Gronkowski, Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister. He then was sidelined with an unexplained shoulder injury that popped up following the first practice after the bye.?He hasn't played in a game since October 22. That team released him Wednesday in a surprise move. Last month, Bennett, on Instagram wrote, "After conversations with my family I'm pretty sure these next eight games will be the conclusion of my National Football League career".

Scottish Parliament Evacuated Over Suspicious Packages
The Scottish parliament has confirmed that evacuation, with police dealing with the incident that occurred at 11.30 am local time. Emergency services attended the scene before police ruled there were no suspicious circumstances.

Bennett followed a similar path, only his pitstop was in Green Bay. These next games are for you. Dwayne Allen, who was acquired from the Indianapolis Colts in March as Bennett's replacement, has yet to record a reception this season. When Bennett was traded to the Patriots, in 2016, everyone seemed excited for the Gronk-Bennett combo.
