    Me too, looks like me and NYCoug were feeling the Bennett signing

    Wenhawk - "Michael Bennett is still around and might be had cheaper than Desmond Bryant was. He has a past here and could play the DE/DT tweener role J.Jones had last year. Grab Abraham too and we would only need 1 or 2 of our mid round picks to fill out the depth chart on the DL."


    NYCCoug " I've been pulling for the return of Michael Bennett all along. He says he wants to play the rest of his career with the Bucs and that he's willing to wait for them to match any offer that he gets. Would be nice if the Hawks offer him a contract and the Bucs refuse to match. Just another dude with a chip on his shoulder. He's versatile, can move along the line, and get after the passer. I'm a bigger fan of his than I am Bryant, but hopefully he can be had for cheaper since consensus is that Bryant's the better player.

    Anyone want to make me a new signature? I've held out hope long enough.

  • Our team is nothing like the so called "dream team" so there is nothing to worry about. People see big signings and make crazy accusations with no intelligence behind them. Hate and fear will do that to some people...

    Mee too, and I think adding more Offense in the draft TE please and mabye even a big WR to compete with Tate at the X, I think he will bail next year and I'd rather have a guy with some familiarity with the offense.


    Agreed. I never thought we would be going DL crazy in the draft like so many pundits think.

    I'll almost guarantee we go LB, TE or big WR at #56.


    LB, TE, and big WR are my top 3 desires for the draft. This draft is very deep at TE and WR this year. Could you imagine if a 6'4 Hunter slipped to us in the 2nd, or a 6'5 Zach Ertz. This offense is already scary, but both McCoy and Tate could easily loose their spot to a 2nd round pick at their position because TE and WR will be that good this year.

  • I'm so stoked. Bennett give the Hawks the option to play a typical 4-3 front, generating more pass rush than when Big Red is in. He's played some snaps at 3-tech too.

    The versatility shaping up in the defensive front has me all kinds of excited.

  • Red is where he's at because he was a mediocre DT. We don't need to move him back inside to see if he would be better there.

  • OK, so it's Avril at OLB (+depth for DE), which Pete said he could play, Bennett at DT and the rest of the starters resuming their roles from last year?

    Have we addressed every need on the front seven (additional depth aside)?

  • Forgive my ignorance - I'm still learning this stuff. Bennett is a DE but I've seen some (like seahawksdraftblog quote below) suggest that he is replacement for Jones in the 3-tech. I though 3-tech was more of a DT than a DE. Am I getting too hung up on titles? Is a 3-tech pass rusher still a huge need for us or can Bennett fill it? Would we conceivably have Irvin, Red, Bennett, and Avril all in at the same time?

    He's played both in the NFL. Seahawks used him the first go-around as a DT. I swear I read somewhere that he moved to DE in 2012.

    You took the words right out of my mouth -- that was my exact reaction when I first heard about this (about 2 minutes ago here in this thread). Dang, I love .Net for the Latest news.

    The funny thing was is that I was thinking about starting a thread this morning, noting the LACK of interest that Michael Bennett seemed to be getting in the FA Market. Ata Baby John! Way to swoop in and carry away another shiny prize back to the nest.

    If this defensive line DOES what I think they'll be capable of ... then perhaps they're going to need their OWN nickname (i.e the Fearsome Foursome, the Purple People Eaters, etc.). :th2thumbs:

    Because we need size. Outside of Rice, we have a lot of short dudes. Having a 6-3+ type would be nice.



    Don't forget, we now have a 6'7 TE. Maybe he can't stretch the field, but a definite treat in the red zone.

  • Does this signing move Bruce Irvin out of an every-down role? I can certainly see Avril and Bryant (maybe Bennett) starting on the other. Then Bennett slides inside during passing situations when Irvin comes onto the field.

    It is awesome that they have changed a position of weakness into hopefully a position of strength. A lot of talent out there. When Clemons comes back, if productive, this unit can be very scary. Just think of all the combinations. Outstanding stuff front office! I give kudos for this one.
