Michael Bennett Wants To Play In 2020

Michael Bennett‘s 2019 season didn’t necessarily go as planned, but the veteran isn’t planning on hanging up his cleats. Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports (via Twitter) that Bennett “wants to play in 2020.”

Following a one-season, nine-sack stint with the Eagles, Bennett was traded to the Patriots last offseason. He saw a reduced role during his time in New England, collecting five tackles and 2.5 sacks in six games (one start). The veteran wasn’t particularly happy with his new role, and that culminated in him earning a one-game suspension for “conduct detrimental to the team.”

The defensive end was shipped to the Cowboys shortly after his reinstatement, and he proceeded to appear in nine games for Dallas. In total, Bennett finished the season with 32 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 15 games (one starts).

Earlier this month, the 34-year-old suggested that he’d welcome a reunion with the Seahawks. Bennett earned three Pro Bowl nods and a Super Bowl ring during his five-year stint with Seattle (the Texas A&M product had a previous stint with the organization to start his career)

      Its a big if but should Bennett cut down on his offsides penalties and he’s willing to be humble upon coming back into the locker room then why not!? Seattle needs as many capable pass rushers as possible. Wouldn’t hurt to get him on a 1 yr ‘prove it’ contract

      Marlin man,

      It would be worth it at the right price. Are you a dr so you can diagnose him? Or your speaking from knowledge of ? You need a smack upside the head !

  1. just my opinion

    With everything going on who wouldn’t say they want to play this year

    I don’t care if this dips**t plays for free no way. He was a leader in the problems after the SB loss. He showed his true colors in Las Vegas. He has talent but it has diminished since being here. I just don’t see the pos out weighing the neg enough.
