Coffee with the Seahawks: Talkin’ Defense


Here is your morning reading list on the Seattle Seahawks for Sunday May 31th. Seattle’s defense had getting extra attention this week, which isn’t that surprising. Seattle’s defense has been the league’s best for the last few seasons, making it the identity of the franchise.

Michael Bennett skipping OTAs, seeking new contract (SI)

After just one year of a four-year deal, Michael Bennett is already unhappy with his contract. Now he’s skipping workouts trying to convince the Seahawks to give him a raise. Perhaps he shouldn’t have signed at a discounted rate a year ago if his contract was going to bother him so much this quickly.

Lambert is Kam Chancellor’s half-brother, which makes for a fun story this time of year. It is too bad that Lambert doesn’t have Chancellor’s athleticism.

It is an unusual approach in a process that typically consists of whole bunch of blowing smoke up the free-agent’s… well, you get the idea.
