Its been a whirlwind week for veteran tight end Martellus Bennett, who was waived by the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday and immediately claimed by the New England Patriots, for whom he caught three passes for 38 yards in a 41-16 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Reid did not divulge the reasons why the Chiefs didnt put in a claim for Bennett. The 10-year pro has caught 430 passes for 4,558 yards and 30 touchdowns in his career but was released last week with a failure-to-disclose-injury designation related to a shoulder ailment.
