  • 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.

    Unlikely. It was Quinn who moved Red outside in the first place.

  • NICE! I didn't think this was going to happen after Avril signing. The pass rush just got 2x times better. Clemons, Irvin, Avril, and Bennett are going to rock the house!

  • 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.

    Lol. I forgot he wore #96. During preseason of course. All I remember is that he tore it up in preseason. I was pissed he was released.

  • 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.

  • Wow! This is just amazing! We got my boy!!!

    Bennett is the guy I wanted the most this off-season on defense. More than Bryant, more than Avril. I mentioned a few days ago that he fit the Jason Jones mold to a tee. Just an inch shorter and a pound lighter. I've watched him play for Tampa and he's just constantly getting after the passer from EVERYWHERE. He probably won't line up at LEO much, but he can definitely play the 3/1/5 techs all effectively. JonRud told me about this while I was at work and I started going NUTS. I'm pretty sure everyone in Queens hates the Seahawks by now because I just can't shut up about them. And why would I? This front office is just astonishing. Just when you think they're done, they pounce again and again and again!

    Take a minute to step back and enjoy this ladies and gents. We are witnessing greatness. A dynasty is being forged. Seattle has become the hotbed of the NFL and everyone is taking notice. It's not just the glitz and glam moves like Harvin and Avril, it's the moves like this one that will make us champions. And how sweet it will be! WOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dare I ask for Amobi Okoye. Will they listen to my calls to the heavens once again!?

    My feelings exactly! Was driving down the road listening to ESPN radio when they announced it. My brain tried to tell me it was Cliff Avril they were talking about but then I started giggling like a school girl (see Tate, Golden) and thought "This is ridiculous!"

    One other thing that helps, is the way our other players have been brought up to speed, then treated right when they need to leave or re-sign.

  • You gotta be in paradise right now with the sheer L-O-V-E Seattle is getting right now for the moves they are making ...

    3 days ago, right after news broke of the Harvin deal, Schefter Tweeted ...
    @AdamSchefter Las Vegas already has established SF and SEA -- today's movers and shakers -- as co-favorites to win next Super Bowl.


    This morning (prior to news of Bennett), he gave a good description of what we're seeing ...
    @AdamSchefter Is it me or are the Seahawks and 49ers treating the off-season the way the Red Sox and Yankees do (or at least used to)?


    I mean forget Glasnost ... what we're seeing right now is FULL ON, up the ante, pile on the nukes Cold War era stuff from the Hawks and 49ers right now. And right now ... I'd say our arsenal is bigger than their arsenal.

  • When John Schneider got passed over for GM of the year, he got a chip on his shoulder...kind of like what we've seen in the Legion of Boom, and from our 5'11" QB. There is fear in the hearts of NFL GM's now, when they think of that red-headed kid in Seattle.

    Well, you're not pe so I don't know about the crack, but definitely some Grade-A somethin'.

    I can't even attempt to get any sleep. I'm in a state of shock/excitement/anticipation. My birthday, the 8th, was one of the crappiest days of the past week or so when compared to the events of March 11-14. I'm so glad John Schneider's getting his national due after getting mugged for Executive of the Year this past season.

  • Not sure if this was mentioned already, but Jason Jones signed for just 3 years $9.5 million. Normally you'd ask why Seattle would pass on such a bargain contract, but it appears they were probably in on Bennett at the time.

    I wonder if they see Bennett as a Jason Jones type or as more of a pass rushing 5-tech alternative to Red Bryant? Maybe a little of both?
