Seahawks Sign Michael Bennett!!! one year 5 MM

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Pete said he was in a meeting prior to his call for a radio station the other day talking about 6 players, well there are still 4 left......

    Also the talk of cutting Clemons that keeps coming up, he did nothing to warner getting cut, they said he is on schedule, Pete said he's in the plan. The only thing I can see happeneing is contract restructuring for some players. We need a big body inside still, Branch should I think be resigned unless were waiting for another cut somewhere unknown to us.

    Bryant was put in the 5T by Quinn, he had a foot problem most of last year and people seem to forget his job is to toss bodies out of the way and collapse the edge on running plays, not get QB sacks. I think he is safe as well.

    Quinn is assembleing a D line that is dynamic to match Petes secondary and LB's.

    These players on defense now are young, fast, nasty and want you to come at them so they can send you back to the huddle with your manhood in question. Bennett is another chip on his shoulder guy, Avril has something to prove as well getting out of Suh's shadow.

    I would think we still need a bigger, run-stuffing DT on the line as well. If we can't get Branch back, how about Bennett's old teammate Roy Miller?

  • Good signing! I also forgot that he was here in pre-season in '09. What a silly cut that was!

  • Per Walterfootball

    "Michael Bennett, DE, Buccaneers. Age: 27. [4 star player]
    Signed with Seahawks (1 year, $5 million)

    One of the more underrated players in the NFL, Michael Bennett is a solid pass-rusher and a premier run-defender. He plays all three downs and deserves a big contract. "

    Wholeheartedly. Turns out you were right, Sarlacc. It wasn't quite time for bloodshed after the Avril signing. After the Bennett signing though? NOW it's time!

  • Michael Bennett - DL - Seahawks
    Michael Bennett didn't give the Buccaneers a chance to match his offer from Seattle.
    Leading up to free agency, Bennett said he’d give the Bucs an opportunity to match any offer he gets elsewhere. "I just didn’t feel any love from them at all," Bennett said. "And that’s kind of disappointing, because for a team that you put everything you had into for four years to do that, you’re just kind of, ‘OK, whatever.’"

    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?




    Thats exactly what i was thinking if RED don't show up big this year and Bennett does what RED does or better against the run while also getting 9 sacks or anywhere near that Pete is'nt gonna deny that type of production. so i hope RED is healed up and ready to play becuase this is a make or break season for him in my opinion. If Bennett shines this year i don't think they will let him walk so they could take Red's money and give it to Bennett. I don't think Red gets cut but he would take a big pay cut to stay on the team if this scenario plays out.

    I really think they're ready to move Red inside. His biggest problem as a young player was unrefined technique, he couldn't get low enough to get good leverage going against guards and centers who are typically significantly shorter than TEs and tackles, hence they moved him outside where his size matches up well and let him loose. Now with a few years of regular playing it's reasonable to believe he has improved his technique and can be more effective against smaller players - and with interior lineman growing by the year (starting guards in NFC West - Alex Boone - 6'8, Mike Iupati - 6'5, Harvey Dahl - 6'5, Shelley Smith - 6'4, Pat McQuistan - 6'6, Daryn Colledge - 6'4), there's no reason to believe he can't continue to be the 2-down lineman he has been in the past, but now in the interior line.

    2 down package - Bennett - Red - Mebane - Clemons
    3rd down package - Avril - Bennett - Scruggs/Howard - Irvin

    Rotation is the name of the game, you can switch it up however way you want. I think Clemons will be eased back in with a 2 down role after coming back from an ACL tear until he's definitely fully recovered. Right now it appears we can afford to do so.
    There is still room for us to hunt down that pocket-collapsing DT to replace Mebane on 3rd down
