Seahawks | Michael Bennett unhappy with contract

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 10:01:20 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: He's got a point, as those financial numbers easily pale in comparison to what the upper echelon players at his position are currently making. At the same time, Seattle does have a strict policy in place about negotiating contracts with players who have two or more years remaining on their deal. More likely than not, though, the Seahawks will probably end up taking care of the stud 30-year-old when the time comes. It shouldn't affect his performance this season.
