Michael Bennett of the Seahawks wants more money

Michael Bennett the Seattle Seahawks pass rusher wants to be paid like a top tier defensive end.  Bennett is in the second year of his four year deal worth 28.5 million dollar deal that he inked in March.  Bennett is complaining because he wants to be paid like a top tier player at his position. 

“Trying to get the contract right,” Bennett said Friday at a charity event, per The Seattle Times. “I’ll be there shortly. I don’t know when I’ll be there. Depends on the team and stuff. See how it works out.”

“Somewhere near the top seven at my position, top eight at my position,” Bennett said after playing 85 percent of the team’s snaps on defense last season. “Not a lot of guys play inside and out (tackle and end). Not a lot of guys do what I do. So I feel like I should be somewhere near there.”
