Seahawks Expected To Re-Sign Bennett

The Seahawks are leading Super Bowl XLVIII 22-0 at halftime, thanks in part to consistent pressure on Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning from a fierce pass rush by the Seattle defensive line.

An integral part of the Seahawks’ front-four is Michael Bennett, whom the team plans to re-sign this offseason, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.¬†Bennett¬†flourished in his first season in the Pacific Northwest, playing all 16 regular season games and totaling 8.5 sacks after signing a one-year deal.

Rapoport did not mention if a deal was already in place. The fifth-year player out of Texas A&M spurred a defense which sacked opposing quarterbacks on 7.7% of pass plays, good for fifth in the league. 

After earning just $5MM in 2013 on his one-year deal, Bennett is likely to receive a steep boost in pay and also secure a long-term contract with the NFC champions.

    Kind of sad that no one really comments here even though the site is new….nonetheless it seems the Broncos practiced in the Deon Sanders school of tackling.

      I think the comments will come in time as the site continues to grow. There’s a nice foundation laid and we’re just starting to get into the offseason. With the NFL combine, pro days, free agency and the draft in the next few months I expect an exponential growth in the comment sections.
