BALTIMORE, July 27 (UPI) -- Wide receiver Drew Bennett, saying his body can't take the punishment of another NFL season, has retired just two days after signing with Baltimore.
"After returning home from Baltimore this weekend, a previous knee injury flared up, making me realize that I am unable to play another NFL season," Bennett said in a statement issued by his agent.
"After an off-season of workouts and rehab I thought I was ready to play again, but it became apparent over this weekend that while my mind is willing, my body will not be able to make it through another NFL season."
Bennett, 30, had 307 receptions for 4,412 yards and 28 touchdowns in eight years with Tennessee and St. Louis.
He only played in the season-opener for the Rams last season before fracturing a foot bone.
