Seattle Seahawks DE Michael Bennett was ejected from practice by head coach Pete Carroll Thursday, August 4. He got into it a little with OL Mark Glowinski during a drill and had to be restrained by teammates. He sat out the rest of the session as a result, with Carroll saying, "We can't play like that. You get in a skirmish, you get thrown out. That's what happens. So that happened today. And that's just the way you do it, the way we do it."
Fantasy Tip: Bennett is expected to be a main piece of Seattle's upper echelon defensive unit once again this season, and this very minor incident shouldn't do anything to change that. He can provide a strong presence in leagues that utilize individual defensive players.

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.

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.
