National Football League trade rumors: Seahawks looking to deal Pro Bowl DE Michael Bennett

"Didn't see ourselves going 9-7". Absolutely. We are pretty disappointed the way the season ended. It sits in your stomach. "And we're excited about the challenges ahead, because we feel like we want to get rolling on this thing". We'll get something accomplished. There is an out after the 2018 season, but he has a dead cap hit of about $5.2 million if he is released or traded.

It's a definition of excitement only Pete Carroll could love.

"I told you guys when we got here, we're going to be in every deal". We've created a high standard there, and that's the fun challenge of where we're at right now. Seattle's cap situation means it would prefer draft picks, especially since it has only a pick at number 18 in the first round and then none until 120 in the fourth.

After five productive seasons in Seattle - Michael Bennett might be on his way out and wearing the jersey of a new team come next season. I understand why that's out there. The combine's really developed into a lot more of ... kind of like the baseball meetings. "But, I just felt that it was time".

Which is GM-speak for: Yes, we seek to move him.

Russell Wilson strikes out in New York Yankees spring training debut
That's what the Yankees did early last month, trading "future considerations" to the Texas Rangers for Wilson's rights. In 2008, the actor and lifelong Yankees fan signed a one-day deal with the club and struck out against the Pirates.

Schneider made it clear the Seahawks wanted to return to the top shelf and will consider everything.

"Part of our challenge right now is, and I don't know how to say this appropriately, is sustaining our level of success that we've had. And we are just open to anything". "But no, we love we're were at and we're jacked about what's going on". You don't want to miss any opportunity. And the cool thing we have going for us is March 14 is when we can get back.

The Seahawks did this on a more limited basis last offseason, very publicly floating Sherman as a potential trade target. This is the first time in the Carroll-Schneider era that the combination of aging, expensive veterans and an absence of younger replacements creates a roster low on peak-career producers.

"Not at this time, : Schneider said". And sometimes you've got to make some tough calls to get that done and put it in the right order. "Those guys who are...they are good football players". No disrespect to the guys we've drafted in the past, but it's been hard for those guys to get out there.
