CHAWK LINES -- Training camp new

Michael Bennett made some waves this morning talking about mediocre QBs getting mega money, but he also said of his own contract dissatisfaction, “I can’t let my unhappiness trump my professionalism.”

Marshawn Lynch was fined $75,000 for not talking after the NFC title game, bringing his total fines from last year to $195,000 (as far as we know).

It appears Evan Mathis might be willing to play for an incentive-laden deal that paid him $3.5 million or so. The Hawks could do that.

Mathis is going to pick a team by the end of the week, agent Drew Rosenhaus said.

The Hawks also had free-agent center Samson Satele in for a visit.

While the Hawks consider adding a veteran, they will start the same five this week — Okung, Britt, Nowak, Sweezy, Gilliam.

Really like fifth-round CB Tye Smith’s chances, especially with Richard Sherman mentoring him.

Three Seattle opponents have lost top receivers: Green Bay’s Jordy Nelson, Carolina’s Kelvin Benjamin, Chicago first-rounder Kevin White.

Former rugby player Jarryd Hayne, who almost signed with the Seahawks, has been one of the NFL’s preseason standouts.

Former Seahawks OG Rob Sims, who was traded to Detroit in a deal that netted Chancellor, has retired. He had a pretty solid nine-year NFL career.
