  • Seahawks were not aware of alleged Michael Bennett incident at Super Bowl

    A league source told The News Tribune the Seahawks "were not aware" of the alleged incident at last year's Super Bowl involving Michael Bennett that got their since-traded Pro Bowl defensive end indicted by a Houston grand jury on Friday.

    The source told the TNT the Seahawks and only learned of it when the grand jury announced the indictment against Bennett on Friday.

    Seattle traded Bennett and a seventh-round draft choice to the Eagles this month in exchange for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick.

    Bennett was indicted Friday by a Harris County (Texas) grand jury for a felony charge of allegedly abusing an elderly woman who was working on the security detail at the 2017 Super Bowl there.

    Sherman started by going through what turned out to be his final days with the Seattle Seahawks:,In an article for The Players' Tribune

    "First of all, they informed me of their intent to release me. They didn't know when they were going to do it, contrary to some reports, they said., the Seahawks didn't ask me to take a pay cut. There was no negotiation. When I met with them on March 7 to discuss my future, but it would be soon

    "Two days later I was in Las Vegas at the NFLPA meetings, when my phone started blowing up. News of Seattle's plans had gotten out., sitting up on a stage in front of like 200 people in a giant hotel conference room

    "A few of hours later, the Seahawks officially released me.",Womens Nick Folk Jersey, at about 1 p.m. Pacific

    "They wanted me to fly to San Jose to have dinner with Kyle Shanahan. So I got my affairs in order — I had literally been a free agent for only a few minutes — and wrapped up some union business. Then I went back to my hotel with my fiancée, and we grabbed our things and jumped on a flight.,Authentic Lamar Miller Jersey, Ashley

    "At dinner, Kyle made one hell of a pitch. He has an incredible football mind — he's just a great tactician — and we talked for hours about different schemes and about his vision for the team. He really impressed me."

    After negotiating his deal with the 49ers,Womens Lamar Miller Jersey, Sherman—who represented himself this offseason—said Seahawks general manager John Schneider told him to bring his offer back to Seattle so it could have a chance to match it.

    finishing with 8.5 sacks, 44 hurries,Womens Brian Cushing Jersey,The Eagles acquired Bennett and a seventh-round pick from the Seattle Seahawks last week in exchange for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick. Bennett was one of the most productive edge rushers in the NFL last season, and 16 QB hits...a total of 68 pressures. Bennett also had 12 run stops,Womens Johnathan Joseph Jersey, which would have been second on the Eagles.

    according to the three offensive coaches I asked about him. He was also a pain in the ass for the Seattle coaches. The good news? With the depth of the Eagles defensive line,Womens Duane Brown Jersey, Bennett will be more of a spot player there, and Philly’s locker room, A player who isn’t quite what he was and picked his spots more than he has in the past, on paper, is a good fit.

    accessible programming, The Bennett Foundation hopes to provide kids and families with the knowledge and resources that will enable them to make good,Bennett and his family started The Bennett Foundation to help prevent childhood obesity. By educating communities through free, healthy lifestyle choices. Bennett also donated all his endorsement money from 2017 to charities that focus on helping minority communities and empowering women of color. He also donated 50 percent of his proceeds from his jersey sales to inner-city garden projects.

    " he said. "Obviously, it puts a fire under them,Authentic Bryan Anger Jersey,"I just think it's one of those things where the agents feel uncomfortable with a player taking the initiative to do his own deal, it makes them more accountable for their actions (or) more players will do this."

    Paraag Marathe,Womens Bryan Anger Jersey, took more than five hours and Sherman was on the phone with other interested teams – the Seahawks,The cornerback's negotiation with general manager John Lynch and the 49ers' chief contract negotiator,Authentic Brian Cushing Jersey, Lions and Raiders – throughout. In the end, those teams didn't have the salary-cap space to accommodate the deal he had worked out with San Francisco.

    Some of Sherman's contract total is tied to making the Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams and to playing 90 percent of the 49ers' defensive snaps. Those might have been reasonable goals in previous seasons, but Sherman will be 30 when the 2018 season begins and he's coming off a ruptured Achilles tendon.

    writing on Twitter that Sherman "got absolutely crushed" by the 49ers. "This is clearly a case of ego getting in the way of his pocket book,Authentic Johnathan Joseph Jersey,Recently retired Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas was one of the contract's critics," Thomas wrote. Former Browns and Eagles executive Joe Banner agreed.

    " he said. "I think these agents sometimes benefit from relationships. 'Oh,Authentic Duane Brown Jersey, I know this GM. Oh, we've had dealings for years.' And they really don't have to do a ton of work. 'Hey,"I think a lot more players feel educated enough to move forward and negotiate their own deals,Authentic Xavier Su'a-Filo Jersey, I called this guy. How much are you willing to give him? Oh, $5 million? I'll convince him that that's good enough.' "

    He held the news conference in a bright red suit befitting his new team. Perhaps most significant was that he wasn't wearing a walking boot after recent arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur from his left Achilles. Sherman downplayed both that and the full rupture he had in the right Achilles last season. He said he felt he'd be at full strength by May or June.

    but if he doesn’t then I think there would be a conversation between the league office and the union on potential legal action," he said. Sherman is a member of the NFL Players Association's board of representatives. He called Reid a "top five,Sherman noted that free agency is ongoing but said he was concerned that former 49ers safety Eric Reid has yet to be signed. "I’m praying that he gets picked up, top 10" NFL safety. "He’s made enough plays to be signed with a team and to make his money," he said. "He deserves his money."

    Sherman said this month has been a bit of whirlwind. He jumped from one team to it's one-time bitter rival on March 12. He's getting married March 28. And he turns 30 on March 30. "We’ll write that down in the record books later about how this month went," he said.
