A year after finding a soft free-agent market -- and parlaying a one-year deal into a Super Bowl ring -- Michael Bennett is finally getting paid. The Seahawks defensive end get his cake and eat it too, agreeing to a four-year deal with Seattle that will pay him $32 million.

The Seahawks announced the contract, which Pro Football Talk first reported. Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports reports the deal will average about $8 million a year and be worth $32 million.

Bennett was rumored to be interested in the Bears if he made it to free agency (starting Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET) largely in part to the presence of his brother Martellus Bennett on the roster.
