NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday on NFL Network's "NFL GameDay Morning" that the Seahawkswill re-sign standout pass rusher Michael Bennett. Signed on a low-cost, one-year contract last offseason, Bennett has more than earned a huge contract extension. He's been one of the better pass rushers in the entire NFC, and the key pass rusher on a deep Seahawks defensive line.
Bennett was set to be one of the top free agents on the market, so any deal to keep him would have to be significant.
Sherman will get paid huge eventually, but prioritizing Thomas says a lot. We heard from many Seahawks this week that Thomas is the leader of this defense. He's the player that the team couldn't live without.
