Coffee with the Seahawks: Michael Bennett, Wide Receivers and David Letterman


Here is your morning reading list on the Seattle Seahawks for Friday May 22st. Michael Bennett said some interesting stuff this week. Seattle’s wide receiver position group has also been drawing a lot of attention. Throw in David Letterman’s retirement, and it has been a busy couple of days in Hawk Town.

Defensive linemen Michael Bennett always has something to say. This time, he compared his head coach to a famously-crazy movie character. Don’t worry, he did it in a positive way.

Speaking of Bennett, he also said that Seattle’s defensive line doesn’t get enough credit for the team’s success. His point was the offensive and defensive lines make everything else on the field happen. He has a very valid point.

Terry Blount discussed the depth at the wide receiver position and gives props to the clutch performances of Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. He also breaks down the tight ends, which is a roster battle that will have very little drama this year.

A quick breakdown of Seattle’s suddenly-deep wide receiver position. While I don’t necessarily agree with their predictions as to who will make the roster and who will not, it is still an interesting breakdown of a very competitive roster battle this season.
