Bottom line: Michael Bennett wasn’t drafted after an inconsistent college career. The Seahawks signed him as a free agent in 2009, then waived him after a few months, and he got picked up by the Buccaneers.
After spending four seasons in Tampa, he returned to Seattle and became one of the most disruptive defensive presences in the NFL. He anchored the Seahawks' defensive line for five seasons, earning three Pro Bowl appearances and helping Seattle win its first championship in Super Bowl XLVIII.
In 2018, the Seahawks traded Bennett to the Eagles, who dealt him to the Patriots a year later. Now, he gets a shot to play for Bill Belichick and add to his 63 career sacks.
