Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett apparently is choosing a potential Seahawks dynasty over his brother’s vision of a “Black Duck Dynasty.”
Per a league source, Bennett definitely is leaning toward staying with the Seahawks. A decision could be made later today.
At issue are salary and, presumably, anticipated playing time. While the Bears reportedly are offering $8.5 million per year and the Seahawks are offering $8 million, the Seahawks used him only 57 percent of the time in 2013. The Bears could want him on the field more frequently than that.
Bennett is the No. 2 free agent on PFT’s Hot 100 list. He could be off the market before it even opens.
