When sources announce that the Seattle Seahawks have no plans on Franchise Tagging DE Michael Bennett, the rumors began to fly. Many believe the team may have sites on Veteran DE and current Minnesota Vikings Free Agent Jared Allen.
While it appears the Seahawks are allowing Bennett to test the waters of Free Agency, they have made it clear that he is an asset and would like for him to stay with the organization.
At this time it is not clear if staying in Seattle is on the top of his list. He may be looking to hit a stroke of luck and snag a deal similar to his brother, current Chicago Bears TE (and recording artist) Martellus Bennett. Martellus, who left the Dallas Cowboys for a one year deal with the NY Giants,was able to secure a four year $20 million dollar deal with the Bears, despite several offers from the Giants.
The Seahawks still have eight days to make an offer Bennett can not refuse before the deadline. So this is another matter we will have to sit back and see what happens.
