Michael Bennett misses Seahawks' workouts
by Shawn Krest |

Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett missed the opening of the team's strength and conditions workout on Monday.

The two-week program is voluntary for veterans, so Bennett won't be punished for missing it. The Seattle Times reported that Bennett was not satisfied with his contract. Bennett is in the second year of a four-year, $28.5 million contract. 

A source told the Times that Bennett won't report, because he wants the team to renegotiate.
