Seahawks re-signed DE Michael Bennett to a four-year, $28.5 million contract, including $16 million guaranteed.
He chose to stay with the Super Bowl champs over the Bears, who offered considerably more money. Bennett, 28, "started" only three games in 2013 with Seattle, but racked up 8.5 sacks and a forced fumble while playing both defensive end and tackle, primarily operating as a sub-package pass rusher. He's not an every-down player, but the Seahawks are big believers in "wave" rotations up front, and Bennett's versatility is critical in their philosophy. The Bears may now attempt to make a late run at free agents Michael Johnson and Lamarr Houston, the top remaining available defensive ends. Mar 10 - 3:38 PM
