Fred Davis And M Bennett


Recommended Posts

Free agent TE Fred Davis has been reinstated by the NFL and is free to sign with any team.

Davis was suspended indefinitely in February of 2014 for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. Since then, he's had brushes with the law regarding a DUI and domestic violence. Josh Gordon and Justin Blackmon should be asking Davis how he got back into the league so soon. Davis, now 29 years old and four years removed from a productive season, will be lucky to make a 53-man roster. He does have a history with new Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan, and Atlanta needs tight end talent.

CBS' Jason La Canfora says DE Michael Bennett has "made it clear he'd rather not be back in Seattle."

It appears Bennett is unhappy with his contract even though he signed a four-year, $32 million deal 14 months ago. The bottom line is he has no leverage. The Seahawks want one of the game's best 4-3 ends playing for them and have no reason to trade him.

CBS' Jason La Canfora says Chip Kelly was "calling all around the NFL trying to pawn [Mychal Kendricks] off for a second-round pick."

Kendricks is a rising stud at inside linebacker, but is entering the final year of his contract. Chip was never going to get a second-round pick under those circumstances, especially when everyone knows how south the coach is on him. Now that the draft is behind us, the Eagles may have to settle for something like a 2016 fourth-rounder if they want to dump Kendricks. Kiko Alonso, DeMeco Ryans and third-round rookie Jordan Hicks are Chip's preferred inside 'backers.

Kendricks and Bennett would fill 2/3 holes on defense IMO. We need them. We passed up Eric who I really wanted, so let's get his big brother!!!

Bennett and Kendricks would almost complete this defense.

So let's say Seattle want a 2-3rd Philly wants a 4th and We don't have a 5th...

So we would have:

1st Rnd

2nd Rnd

6th Rnd

7th Rnd

Is that worth it?

Well rumor is that Eagles might have to take a 2016 4th rounder and if that's the case then it's well worth it for me.

I like Mychal Kendricks but i wouldn't trade a 2nd round pick for him ... He is in his last year of his deal.... You will need to extend his contract too ... But he fits this scheme to a T ...

Nobody is offering a 2nd. That's what Chip was asking for but nobody bit. Now his value has dropped even more after the draft.

They were only trying to trade him to move up for Mariotta. They won't now, same with Evan Mathis.

What are the chances of Wagner signing here next offseason? He's my favorite MLB. He raved about Dan Quinn when Dan took the job here. Nothing but good things to say about him and I'm sure Quinn feels the same. I have to believe that we'll be pursuing him.

I'd give up a 2nd for Bennett. Proven, productive, plug n play guy who knows Quinn's scheme and could move all over the Dline. Nightmare for our the NFC South opponents.

You couldn't draft anyone in 2016 that would be that proven and ready. Plus, if you get him for this year you get an extra year of playtime from him.

Seattle will probably never consider it but I could see Bennett making life difficult for them with the media.
