It looks like the days of Michael Bennett and his infuriating habit of jumping offsides will come to a close with the Seahawks.
For the past few weeks, reports have surfaced about Seattle's desire to trade the veteran defensive end.
Now, as trade discussions continue to heat up, we have the actual reason as to why the Hawks want Bennett out of the 206 moving forward: to quiet things down.
@RapSheet reports that Michael Bennett is on the trade market partly because the Seahawks want to make their team a little “quieter.” That’s a new one.— Gregg Rosenthal (@greggrosenthal) March 6, 2018
Indeed, this certainly is a new one.
While the Seahawks are known for being a boisterous crew, led by Bennett, Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas, perhaps GM John Schneider, Pete Carroll and Co. think it'd be best to split the guys up.
At the same time, let's not sit here and act like Bennett has a long-term future in the Emerald City. He's 32 going on 33, and saw his play decline last season.
Source tells me the Falcons are one of multiple teams discussing a Michael Bennett trade with the Seahawks. Nothing imminent but will be interesting to see how it all unfolds. https://t.co/IcvdmTZSlE— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) March 5, 2018
The 6-4, 275-pounder has been with the Seahawks since 2013, but his time is all but up. Time to put his house on the market, because he'll be looking for a new place to call home soon.
