ESPN reported on our very own hothead, Michael Bennett, after the Seahawk got booted out of practice for the third time this season. What’s he so mad about? That damn money thing? Will his wife tell him to pull his head out of his backside again?
RENTON, Wash. — Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett and left tackle Bradley Sowell got into a heated dust-up Sunday that resulted in both players getting pulled from practice.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the fight was the result of Sowell shoving defensive end Josh Shirley to the ground earlier in a one-on-one drill. When Bennett got a turn to face Sowell, the two players mixed it up and ended up on the ground before they were separated.
“He’s just fighting for his own a little bit,” Carroll said of Bennett. “One of the young guys got knocked around, and he was standing up for him. He’s got a lot of pride. He’s an incredible competitor, but he’s got to make sure he stays poised so he doesn’t get himself in trouble. So we had a good illustration of that today.”
