Seahawks DE Michael Bennett not at OTA's due to contract dispute
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett has been noticeably absent from organized team activites this week, and now it's clear his absence is because he wants a new contract, per The Seattle Times.

Bennett is staying away from team activities because he hopes he can get a new deal from the Seahawks.

"Trying to get the contract right,’’ Bennett said. “I’ll be there shortly. I don’t know when I’ll be there. Depends on the team and stuff. See how it works out."

Bennett, who is in the second year of a four-year, $28.5 million deal, wants a contract that will pay him what the top seven players at his position earn. His current deal averages out to be 14th in salary among defensive ends in a 4-3 defense.

“Somewhere near the top seven at my position, top eight at my position,’’ Bennett said. “Not a lot of guys play inside and out (meaning both tackle and end). Not a lot of guys do what I do. So I feel like I should be somewhere near there.

“I just want to be in the realm of the guys that play like me,’’ he said. “There are only so many guys that do what I do, and I would love to be like somewhere in there where they are at.’’

Bennett recorded 38 tackles and seven sacks in 16 games last season.

Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Pete Carroll is like Willy Wonka
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett had an interesting perspective on playing for head coach Pete Carroll.

"It's like playing for Willy Wonka," he said in an appearance on Seattle's 750 AM. "He’s crazy. He wants to be young. He just is one of those guys who’s always up beat, wants to have a good time, and let’s you be yourself."

Bennett also addressed his contract dispute. He has complained about his four-year, $28.5 million contract several times this offseason. "People get mad when players ask for raises … but they don’t understand a team’s longevity," he said. "The Seahawks are going to be around for as long as there is an NFL. But a player only has so much time."
