Tight end Martellus Bennett signs with Green Bay Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers have signed Martellus Bennett, giving quarterback Aaron Rodgers a prolific pass-catching target at tight end.

Terms of the deal were not announced by general manager Ted Thompson.

The addition of Bennett likely means that last year's starter, Jared Cook, won't return to Green Bay. Cook became a favorite option down the stretch for Rodgers.
