Bye-Bye BennettMarch 14th, 2013
In a move that absolutely makes Joe want to vomit, Bucs free agent Michael Bennett has signed a one-year, $5 million deal to play defensive end for the Seahawks, per ProFootballTalk.com.
A ONE-YEAR deal for only $5 million!
Joe really doesn’t get the logic of the New Schiano Order and rockstar general manager Mark Dominik here. Bennett was their best defensive end, is in his prime, and was an absolute manbeast against the run. He also logged a stunning amount of playing time and showed his versatility rushing inside at times.
For now, the Bucs will bank on hasn’t-proven-much-yet Da’Quan Bowers and Adrian Clayborn coming off a knee surgery to start.
Jimminy Christmas! The Bucs’ pass rush just got worse.
Joe can’t wait to see what the Bucs have up their sleeves to put a quality rotation of defensive ends on the field.
Joe wrote last week about how Team Glazer used to boast about their streak of not losing a homegrown talent because of money. Either the team had no use for Bennett, or the streak is broken.
