Former Green Bay Packers player Tom Crabtree fired off several tweets Sunday night targeting New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett.

Bennett was released from the Packers after claiming he had a serious shoulder injury, but somehow miraculously recovered in only a couple days to play for the Patriots Sunday night. He also trashed the Packers medical staff for the way the situation was handled.

Crabtree was not impressed by Bennett’s actions and unleashed on him.

The only people who know the whole truth are Bennett and the Packers management. Everybody else’s opinion is based on second-hand reports. But it is pretty hard to believe the idea Bennett was somehow too hurt to play for the Packers, but was just fine for the Patriots a few days later. That doesn’t make sense at all.

It really looks like Bennett believes that the Packers are done without Rodgers, and the Patriots are steaming toward another deep playoff run. I don’t blame Bennett for trying to chase a ring, but it’s really unprofessional to handle it this way if that’s how it went down.
