Bennett is the brother of TE Martellus, who reportedly tried to recruit him to come to the Bears after his $4.8 million, one year rental contract ended (which turned out to be a lease with an option to buy). Instead he opted to return to Seattle and help defend the Seahawks franchise first Super Bowl trophy. The day before free agency started, Bennett inked a four year, $28.5 million contract ($16 million guaranteed). After 6 sacks and 1 FF in his first three seasons in Tampa Bay combined, the former undrafted free agent, hybrid DE/DT has 17.5 and 7 FFs in the past two years (his last season with the Bucs and first with the Seahawks). Used in DL wave rotations, his athletic versatility and scheme flexibility come in handy, but his greatest attribute might be his interior pass rushing ability (which Peyton Manning could probably attest to). Bennett turns 29 during the 2014 season. (May 25)
