Tribal Chief Posted April 10, 2015 Share Posted April 10, 2015 Michael Bennett says he never asked Seahawks for a tradeWhen Michael Bennett opens his mouth, interesting things usually flow forth.He hasnt done that in some time, however, leaving plenty for him to address today.The Seahawks defensive end turned up on 710 ESPN in Seattle, and said, among other things, that he never asked for a trade, as was reported in March."Man, like I said, they made rumors about Jesus, theyll make rumors about anybody," Bennett said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.Asked specifically whether he asked for a trade (as was reported by Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram), Bennett replied: "I never asked for it. I didnt come to them asking for a trade. Im still trying to figure out how a guy from Dallas make up a story about me, Im living in Seattle, Im like how does that happen? Im in Hawaii surfing, got the kids surfing in the ocean and they are talking about something else."Of course, the contractual element of the reported displeasure with the Seahawks wasnt addressed (710 is the teams radio flagship station)."Everything is good," Bennett said. "I mean, weve been talking. I dont know what the problem is there. Still trying to figure out what happened." "For me, I wouldnt read it because whatever they say about me is a lie."Of course, the things unsaid leave room for interpretation. To say weve been talking makes it clear theres something to be talked about.But Bennett at least had the opportunity to get his side out there, which he hasnt for some time.
