Michael Bennett may soon be on his way out of the Pacific Northwest.
"From what I understand, the Seahawks are looking to move him," he said. "One of their core defensive players over the last several years. Production has been really no question here, but this is a team that's trying to maybe quiet things down a little bit compared to over the last couple years."
Citing a source, ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure reported the Atlanta Falcons are one of "multiple teams" that have discussed a potential trade for Bennett, who is regarded as one of the most outspoken players in the NFL when it comes to social issues.
The 32-year-old has three years and roughly $27 million remaining on his contract—which contains outs in 2019 and 2020 should his next team choose it doesn't want to see out the entirety of the deal.
A Pro Bowler in each of the past three seasons, Bennett finished the 2017 campaign with 8.5 sacks and 40 total tackles while playing 84.8 percent of the Seahawks' defensive snaps.
