Michael Bennett wants Seattle Seahawks stay

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett admits that he would like stay with the club after his current deal expires at the end of the season.

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett has admitted that he would like to extend his stay with the club at the end of the season.

Bennett signed a one-year deal with the team last year during the off-season and has impressed as part of the Seahawks number one ranked defense in the 2013 campaign.

However, a new deal may be hard to come by due to possible extensions for quarterback Russell Wilson, cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas, as well as the 28-year-old.

"I don't think about the money because it's not in my account," Bennett told reporters.

"You do want long-term deals, but I don't think about it as much as some people think I think about it. I think about winning the game.

"I'm taking it one game at a time, taking care of this moment and playing for this team."

Bennett registered 31 tackles and a team-leading 8.5 sacks in the 2013 season.
