The Atlanta Falcons are among the teams interested in trading for Seattle’s Michael Bennett, according to a report Sunday night from ESPN, while also noting that “nothing is imminent.” It was revealed late last week that the Seahawks are engaging teams in trade talks for Bennett, who has made the Pro Bowl the last three seasons but will turn 33 next November and has battled a slew of nagging injuries the last two seasons, notably plantar fascia and knee issues in 2017. In fact, it has been rumored for months that the Seahawks could consider just releasing Bennett (Bennett himself speculated he might not be back on several occasions at the end of last season) But instead of releasing Bennett and getting nothing the Seahawks are attempting to trade him first and get at least something in return, with Seattle likely hoping for draft picks. Seattle has eight picks in the 2018 draft but only one in the first three rounds.
