Bruce Irvin and Michael Bennett both no show for first day of Seahawks OTAs

A couple of weeks ago I wrote that the Seattle Seahawks should consider trading both Michael Bennett and Bruce Irvin to the Atlanta Falcons. It’s an admittedly difficult task to get equal value for those two, but getting rid of them may be more about addition by subtraction, because they are quickly becoming locker room trouble.

Last week I ranked the Seattle Seahawks by offensive position. This week I take a look at the defense. 1.
