I had rotator cuff surgery last year at 50 years old and was back to work with no restrictions in two weeks. This doesn't even help to explain the discounted price IMO. It's so common and as long as the surgery isn't screwed up, it is very easy to come back 100% in no time.


However, every person heals differently. Your experience doesn't translate to Bennett.

That being said, I expect he will be fine. And actually, it does explain the discount more than anything else.


Given that Bennett is an elite athlete, I'd bet on the guy's shoulder healing faster than that of the average person.

I also had a torn rotator cuff (nearly competely torn suprasinits tendon) and a busted up shoulder capsule last year. Mine healed pretty quick with prolotherapy (PRP or stem cell therapy is used in the same manner with a lot of athletes now) and press/pull up programming quickly.

Bennett is getting a $18750 roster bonus per active game. The 9ers use this tactic alot with contracts. (cause they are slimy) he is the only player we have this arrangement with. This per Shutdown Corner...

Didn't say they didn't. I am just hoping they arnt banking on him, ala Jones, and have other guys that can step in.

Reading comprehension

Yep they are just going to pay him $5 million to sit on the sidelines...fingers crossed he never plays :sarcasm_off:

And I highly doubt even you can comprehend what you type

You might be correct because you obviously can't.

This. I would take it to mean that team doctors and experts have evaluated it and were certain they could repair it surgically, rehab it, and have him ready to play this summer. Nothing else makes sense. Nobody gets signed without a physical.

Here is my only issue. - why not structure a deal that kicks in a five year contract if either certain things are accomplished or he is in the roster next year. Now if he plays great this year we are bidding against everyone else.

I guess I just don't think that is the only reason it was a one year deal. I think that is way more because of Kam, Sherman erc needing new contracts....

It works out best for both sides, he can sign a fat contract next year and I think our hope is that we can let him go next year and develop our own interior pass rusher (Scruggs?) much cheaper.

Plenty of time to get fully healed up. Especially with the type of doctors and the type of treatments these guys get.

No need to be a jerk to him, but the original poster did kind of knee-jerk (no-pun-intended). Yes he's the main source of our inside pass rush, that's why we paid him so much money. He'll be fine.

If he were a pitcher or QB, I would be concerned.

We should still invest in our D-Line since we have some cap space.

I completely agree which is what I meant with the rotator cuff not being the only reason why it was a one year deal. It may have been why he signed the one-year deal with us and nobody else offered more but from a Seahawks perspecitve there were more reasons

I'm recovering from a slap tear of my labrum, torn rotator cuff and torn superspinatus ligament from last december. My recovery timeline is 12-18 months. I go to physical therapy twice a week. He should be able to come back from the torn rotator cuff much faster having medical attention everyday.

Think of the 1 year deal as an insurance policy to hold on to him. If it turns out that he wasn't worth keeping on the roster, we wouldn't be losing very much gauranteed money. But it does raise another question. If the front office wasn't able to strike a deal with Bennett for a multi year deal after this upcoming season, could the FO place a franchise tag on him?

They certainly could, but would they want to is the question.

In addition, I expect the backlash to destroy any NFC west team from competing for the division. In an unprecedented move the Chargers will be awarded the NFC West playoff berth after no NFC west team manages to achieve more than 2 wins.

Does Bennett really need to play with more than one shoulder?

Does anyone know if he has had surgery, getting surgery or just playing with it? I heard he was on the injury report for the last bit of last season. I haven't heard he has had or is definately getting surgery.
