So Michael Bennett's book club was just the first step in a much bigger plan. The Seahawks star has grand ambitions that include not just NFL domination, but leading the free world.

Bennett may have some other obstacles to overcome -- lack of governing experience, no military service, and the fact that we haven't had a president with a beard in a very long time -- but at least he doesn't have to worry about eligibility.

Bennett is a natural born citizen and by 2020 will have been 14 years a resident of the United States. He also has not held the office twice before. He won't be 35 years old on Election Day, but he will satisfy the 35-year-old clause of Article Two, Section 1 just 10 days later. Presidents only have to be 35 years old by Inauguration Day, so Bennett makes the cut.

The important question, then, becomes who he'll pick as his vice president. Some of the likely candidates aren't eligible. His brother Martellus, former teammate Marshawn Lynch and current teammates Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman are all too young, for example. Teammate Kam Chancellor has hit so many people so hard (WARNING: NSFW LYRICS) that his nickname is Bam Bam. Not exactly vice presidential material.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, though, might be able to help Bennett carry California -- he was born there and won two national championships with Southern California. That's a huge state for the electoral college.

Bennett's controversial stance of holding the assassination of John F. Kennedy against Matthew Stafford because he's from Dallas could cost him the state of Texas, though, and he seems unlikely to carry Arizona (Cardinals rivalry) and/or Wisconsin (Packers rivalry). He called Ryan Tannehill mediocre, so that could either cost or win him Florida, depending on how Dolphins feel about him four years from now.

Bennett has mentioned in the past that he respects Tom Brady, so that could put Massachusetts in play. Come to think of it, Bennett could probably lock down most of New England simply by asking Brady to be his VP. But considering Brady had a "Make America Great Again" hat in his locker last year and Bennett appears to not be a fan of Donald Trump, that might not work out so well.

No matter who he picks, Bennett will also have to put together a strong campaign staff and hit the road to give policy speeches and stump for down-ticket candidates in 2020. He won't really be able to do that if he's still playing NFL games starting in August, so he'll have to basically have the race locked up by the start of training camp if he really wants to win, and that's assuming he can even earn the nomination.

In other words, he has a tough road ahead.
