Former Cowboys DE Michael Bennett wants 1 more year in the league

Cowboys, Michael Bennett

Earlier this offseason, Michael Bennett was unsure if he would return for another season following a year with the Dallas Cowboys. After considering his options, Bennett wants to play one more year in the NFL.

The veteran defensive end began the 2019 season with the New England Patriots. But after seeing his role diminish in New England, Bennett was moved to the Cowboys ahead of the trade deadline.

In his nine games with the Cowboys, Bennett tallied 27 tackles, 11 tackles for loss and four sacks. Even though Dallas failed to make the playoffs, it was evident that Bennett was an ideal fit for the Cowboys defense.

However, Bennett is currently a free agent and is hoping to sign with a team this offseason. Whether that team is the C0wboys or not remains to be seen. However there is no question that Dallas could use someone to help fill the void left by Robert Quinn’s departure.

So far this offseason, the Cowboys have made plenty of moves in hopes to return to the postseason in 2020. Most notably, the team re-signed receiver Amari Cooper and used their franchise tag on quarterback Dak Prescott.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Cowboys have been linked to multiple defensive linemen. In light of that, the Texas A&M product would likely be open to returning to Dallas next season.

Back in 2017, Martellus Bennett — Michael’s brother — retired from the NFL after 10 seasons. Even though Michael likely has plans to spend time with his brother after retirement, those plans may have to wait for another year.
