Patriots TE Martellus Bennett signs with the Green Bay Packers

Bennett became an immediate fan favorite in New England due to his freaky soundbites and social media hilarity. The Patriots tried to extend Bennett through 2017, but both sides failed to reach an agreement.

Bennett posted about the news on his Instagram page, also shouting out the fact that Friday is his 30th birthday. Defensive back Micah Hyde signed with the Bills and center J.C. Tretter went to the Browns. The Packers already lost OL J.C. Tretter to free agency and are nearly certain to see G T.J. Lang and RB Eddie Lacy leave, too, so Bennett's road-grading prowess will be quite welcome for the run game.

DTE Energy says 700,000 of its customers lost power in southeastern MI and more than 670,000 were without service early Thursday. The Weather Service has issued a wind advisory in effect through noon, with gusts of more than 45 miles per hour possible.

The Green Bay Packers did what the Green Bay Packers do: locked up one of their own key free agents. Bennett started 12 of 16 games last season, recording 55 catches for 701 yards and a career-high seven touchdowns.

With one of the deepest running back draft classes in recent memory coming up next month the Packers could find a quality back in the second or third round once they are on the clock.

According to sources, Perry's contract includes an $18.5 million signing bonus, the only guaranteed money. He should be a great fit with Aaron Rodgers, and he has the chance to put up some big numbers in Green Bay's offense. While Hyde can play in the slot - and that's where he had most of his success in Green Bay - he still will struggle to match up against a receiver who's either tall or quick. Listen to him with former Packers and Badgers offensive lineman Mark Tauscher weekdays from 9 to 11 a.m. on "Wilde & Tausch" on 100.5 FM ESPN Madison.
