Michael Bennett

Bennett went undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2009 but was signed by the Seattle Seahawks, though he was released after a brief run on the practice squad.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed him, where he made the team and as a backup Defensive End. Bennett became a starter in 2011, and in 2012, he had his best year as a Buccaneer with nine Sacks and 41 Tackles.

After that year, he rejoined Seattle as a Free Agent, where he would have his best run in football.  Bennett helped the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII, and would go to the Pro Bowl three straight seasons (2015-17), with the first of those seasons being a ten-sack year.  

Bennett would play for Philadelphia in 2018, and for Dallas and New England in 2019.

Bennett retired with 69.5 Sacks and 359 Tackles.
