    Thought that as well.... Griffen's deal blew that away... I like the idea of bringing Griffen back and hope he can bring it being a full time player.

    I wouldn't go that far. He has shown promise, but he has a long ways to go before he can even be mentioned in the same category as Jared Allen.

    Michael Johnson signed with the Buccaneers with a 5 year 43.75 million deal with 8.5 million per year with 24 million guaranteed, almost the same as Everson's contract

    Bennett, Johnson and Griffen are all pretty similar type guys. The Seahawks definitely got a home town discount, but Bennett is also two years older than Griffen and a year and a half older than Johnson.

    I have no problems with the Griffen deal. It is clear that Zimmer think he fits the mold that he wants, so I am good with it.

    Bennett is older than Everson and Johnson, that is why he got a cheaper deal than Everson and Johnson did

    E.Griffen = 8, 4, 5.5
    M. Bennett = 4, 9, 8.5


    As I said, we overpaid. You can drink the Koolaid if you want. The only real saving grace is his guaranteed money isn't that high. So he will surely be renegotiating this deal soon.
    Also defensive snaps is almost identical between them 58 - 60 %
