RENTON, Wash. -- The Seahawks are reportedly shopping defensive lineman Michael Bennett around in hopes of trading him.

ESPN's Brady Henderson quoted a source who told him about the possibility of a Bennett trade.

Bennett has said he is committed to playing football and wants to stay in Seattle, according to SeattlePI. He had earlier said he didn't think the team would keep him.

SeattlePI says Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has this to say Thursday at an NFL scouting combine about Bennett.

"I haven’t talked to Mike in awhile now," Carroll said. "But it’s just this time of year, conversations going in all directions.

Bennett, 32, has been with the Seahawks since 2013. He also played part of a season with the Seahawks in 2009.
