FOXBOROUGH -- Get ready for the return of Martellus Bennett and the Imagination Agency.

The mercurial tight end was claimed off waivers by the Patriots on Thursday, one day after he was cut loose by Green Bay.

The 30-year-old, who spent last season with New England, caught 55 passes for 701 yards and seven touchdowns for the Patriots last year. He signed with the Packers this past offseason as a free agent.

The move was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.
