When veteran tight end Martellus Bennett signed a three-year, $21 million contract with the Packers this spring, he never offered any hint that his stay would be much shorter.

But Bennett might be calling it quits after just one year in Green Bay.

Bennett, 30, posted an Instagram story on Saturday saying he is considering retirement after this season, his 10th in the NFL.

"After conversations with my family, I'm pretty sure these next eight games will be the conclusion of my NFL career," Bennett wrote. "To everyone that has poured themselves and time into my life and career. These next games are for you. Thank you."

A Packers source confirmed Saturday that the team is aware of Bennett's possible retirement after the season. Green Bay, which is on a bye this week, has nine games to go in the regular season.

Even after he signed with the Packers, Bennett maintained his home in Long Grove, Illinois, a northern suburb. Bennett spoke frequently about the return trips he made there to see his wife and daughter.
