    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Feb 12, 2014
    This is not Costco, this is not Walmart this is real life,” Bennett said on NFL Network, via the Seattle Times. "There is no such thing as discount," Bennett told NFL Network on Tuesday night. "This isn't Costco. This isn't Walmart. This is real life." This is not Costco, this is not Walmart – this is real life…There is no discount really because you go out there and you don’t give a discount on effort; you go out there and you give the best effort every day and you fight for your teammates, and you want to be compensated for the way that you perform and the kind of teammate you are.” Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett believes in getting paid what you are worth and when asked if he would take a “hometown discount” to stay with the Super Bowl champions, Bennett was having none of that talk. As noted here earlier, Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett and fullback Michael Robinson were guests today on NFL Network’s NFL Total Access. After a year playing out a restricted free agent tender in Tampa and settling for a one-year deal last year, it’s understandable that Bennett is prioritizing his desire to get paid over his desire to remain in Seattle. “There is no discount really because you go out there and you don’t give a discount on effort; you go out there and you give the best effort every day and you fight for your teammates, and you want to be compensated for the way that you perform and the kind of teammate you are.”
