Seahawks | Michael Bennett unhappy with contract (Fri Jul 22, 01:01 PM) - Seattle Seahawks DE Michael Bennett is unhappy with his contract, saying he wants 'to be fairly compensated with the top guys in the league,' and believing that he's 'definitely one of the top five defensive ends.' He added: 'I'm just to the point where it's kind of like, if you don't think I'm valuable, then just get rid of me.' Bennett is set to make $5.5 million this year and $7 million next year.

Our View: The Seahawks are unlikely to give him more money with two years left on his deal, but next year they could compensate him for extra production under his current deal, like they did when they extended Marshawn Lynch.

Seahawks | Michael Bennett enters camp unhappy (Thu Jul 21, 02:55 AM) - Seattle Seahawks DE Michael Bennett (ankle) made it clear he wants a new deal, and he did not participate in organized team activities (OTAs) as a result of his unhappiness. He did show for mandatory minicamp, but he sat out with an ankle injury. If his deal is not redone before the season, it will be interesting to see how it affects Bennett into the regular season.

Our View: There's only so much you can do with the cap restraints teams have and the Seahawks have benefited from some cheap rookie contracts for their big stars. We knew once Russell Wilson got paid big, it would be hard to keep everyone happy. Bennett has been tremendous in this scheme, but it's a scheme which prides itself on plug and play defenders. So Bennett may have to wait until he hits free agency in 2018.
