Last year, the Seahawks signed defensive lineman Michael Bennett to a bargain-basement, one-year, $5 million deal.

This year, it won’t be as cheap to keep Bennett around. But he wants to stay.

Per our own Curtis Crabtree, who covers the team for KJR radio, Bennett said Wednesday negotiations on a new deal haven’t begun, but that he “100 percent” wants to stay.

“We can go back and win a Super Bowl again with all these guys,” Bennett said. “It’s a business but I definitely want to be back.”

Coach Pete Carroll agrees, as to Bennett and the rest of the free agents.

“There’s some very difficult decisions and things that we’ll have to make, as you always do at this time of year, but we just need to get better,” Carroll said, via Crabtree.
