Report: Seahawks talking about Michael Bennett trade
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll answered questions on a variety of topics during a media session on Thursday and defensive end Michael Bennett’s status was on the list.
Bennett said at the end of the season that he did not expect to be back with the Seahawks in 2018 and Carroll said Thursday that he hasn’t spoken to Bennett for a while. He said there are conversations going in all directions regarding Bennett and it appears a trade is one of the directions.
JaMarcus Russell was the No. 1-overall pick. Forget about what he did or didn’t do with his career, his arm talent is off the charts.
Mayock thought Allen’s delivery was tighter during the combine drills than it was at Wyoming, where this past season Allen completed less than 57 percent of his passes. There also was improvement with his footwork.
Rosen also came across well, on and off the field.
I thought Josh Rosen is as advertised, Mayock said. He’s as natural a thrower as I’ve seen since Sam Bradford. My concern with him is the durability, but I thought he got better and better, accurate at all three levels.
One of those teams appears to be the Cincinnati Bengals. Per Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com, Coleman also met with the Bengals Thursday night and added there is mutual interest for a deal to get done.
Coleman started all 42 games he appeared in over the last three seasons for the Panthers. He recorded at least 90 tackles in each of his first two seasons in Carolina with 11 total interceptions over that span. However, Coleman missed four games last season and didn’t record an interception for just the second time in his eight-year career.
The Saints could use help at safety following their decision to move on from Kenny Vaccaro. The Bengals have both George Iloka and Shawn Williams under contract through 2020, which would seemingly lessen the need for Coleman’s services. Iloka started all 16 games for Cincinnati last season with Williams starting all 11 games he played in.
