Clarence Hill    @clarencehilljr
Per multiple sources, Michael Bennett is seeking a trade to Atlanta and a new contract.

The Falcons hired former Seahawks DC Dan Quinn and could really use a solid defensive end like Bennett.

Bennett, 29, signed four-year, $32 million contract that included $16 million guaranteed with the Seahawks in March of last year. He still has another three years remaining on the agreement to go along with base salaries of $6 million (2015), $4 million (2016), and $6 million (2017).
