New Packers tight end Martellus Bennett just arrived in Green Bay, but it already looks like he is making himself at home.

Bennett decided to sleep in front of his locker at the Packers' facility last night after he was locked out of the team's dorm at St. Norbert's College in De Pere, Wis.

Bennett took to his Instagram story last night to capture the moment, via 247 Sports Brian L. Jones (WARNING: explicit language):

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy laughed off Bennett's nighttime location.

"I didn't check, I heard all about it [though]. I was here late last night" McCarthy said. "I don't usually check the lockers for people sleeping."

Bennett, who is known as a character both on and off social media, signed a three-year, $21 million contract with Green Bay during the offseason. The 30-year-old caught 55 balls for 701 yards and seven touchdowns for the New England Patriots in 2016.

Packers training camp officially begins on Thursday, July 27.
