Seahawks Defensive End Michael Bennett Rips Sam Bradford

The Seahawks face the Eagles in Seattle in November.

But Seahawks Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett is already taking shots at Sam Bradford.

Bennett, in an interview Tuesday on 710 ESPN in Seattle, blasted the Eagles' quarterback, who returned to practice this week after sitting out two weeks of sessions after demanding a trade and protesting the Eagles' trading up to draft Carson Wentz with the second pick.

"I listened to Sam Bradford again," he said. "I just almost threw up. I can't believe Sam Bradford is complaining about making $40 million in the next two years, and because he actually has to compete for a position.

"This guy ... this guy right here definitely sets a bad tone of what a player should be. If I was his teammate, how can you play with a guy that doesn't want to compete at a high level and feels like his position should be solidified without even putting up the stats or the wins to back that up?"

Bradford is actually scheduled to make $35 million over the next two years.

This isn't the first time Bennett has blasted Bradford.

Last August, also on 710 ESPN, he said this:

"There's some mediocre quarterbacks in the NFL that make a lot of money," he said. "You take a guy like Sam Bradford - he's never played really in the last three years, but he's made more money than most guys in the NFL."
