Pete Carroll had to throw Michael Bennett out of practice today to stop a problem going on in Seattle.
Carroll threw his star defensive end out of a practice session after Bennett and Cliff Avril got into it with left guard Mark Glowinski during a heated team drill. Bennett reportedly had to be restrained by fellow tackle Jordan Hill before being booted by Carroll, who thought Bennett’s aggression went over the line.
“(The team’s passion is) translating into sometimes we lose a little bit of the poise that we need,” Carroll said after practice. “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.”
I love that they are fighting this early in camp. That tells me they really want it.
