RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Bennett is better, and more valuable to the Seahawks, than he gets credit for. Because of a thin D-Line, he played nearly 200 more snaps last season than in 2013, which likely sapped his effectiveness at times as he played inside and out. A deeper line this year should keep him fresher. Expect him to challenge for double-digit sacks again.

2014

Bennett recorded 31 tackles, 8.5 sacks and a fumble recovery for a touchdown during his first season in Seattle. Those numbers were actually down from his output while he with the Buccaneers, but that's likely due to how good the Seahawks' defense is as a whole, rather than a decline in Bennett's skill. He'll have a great chance to be starting on the end of the 4-3 and will have an opportunity to put up similar numbers to that of his 2013 season.

2013

The Seahawks signed Bennett in March in hopes of improving a pass rush that was insufficient last season. Bennett will play behind Red Bryant at left defensive end and likely won't see enough snaps to be a weekly IDP option. He has a torn rotator cuff, but the Seahawks are confident he'll be able to play through it.

2011

Though he is currently listed atop the depth chart at Right DE, he will probably wind up as a backup eventually. Bennett can play DL or DE so he is a versatile player for the team as a backup.
