Fifteen months after giving Michael Bennett a new contract, the Seahawks are going to trade him.
Why? Not because his play has dropped off, obviously. More likely because they want to get younger and “quieter” in the locker room.
Seattle didn’t get much for the Pro Bowl end — a fifth and fast, young receiver Marcus Johnson (while flipping a seventh to Philadelphia as well). One report indicated the Patriots tried to offer a third for Bennett and a fifth, but it sounds like the Seahawks had a deal with the Eagles before the Patriots came along and the Seahawks didn’t want to renege on the Eagles.
