RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Free agent defensive end Michael Bennett is returning to Seattle after agreeing to a multi-year deal with the Super Bowl champion Seahawks.
Terms of the contract were not immediately available on Monday. Bennett was considered one of the top free agents in the NFL after a breakout season with the Seahawks where he led the team in sacks and proved a versatile option as a defensive end and defensive tackle.
Bennett was thought to have been strongly pursued by Chicago, where he had a chance of joining his brother, Marcellus, with the Bears. But he ultimately decided to return to Seattle.
Bennett took a chance on himself last offseason by signing a one-year deal for $3 million in base salary. That gamble paid off as Bennett became one of the hottest commodities in free agency.
