This Tuesday morning, defensive end Michael Bennett announced that he would be retiring from the NFL after 11 seasons in the league. He had put together a great, memorable career. One of his most memorable moments was when he went for an incredible bike ride in celebration of winning the NFC Championship.
Following the Seattle Seahawks miraculous come-from-behind, overtime victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship, the Seahawks celebrated, but Bennett did it in his own unique way.
Bennett took a police bike and rode it around CenturyLink Field in celebration. Afterward, Bennett noted, "You go to a Super Bowl, you can do anything you want in this city." The defensive lineman also said it was the "best bike ride I've ever had."
While rarely the star, Bennett was a solid contributor in the NFL for 11 seasons. He was a three-time Pro Bowler and a Super Bowl champion with the Seahawks, where he played two separate stints (2009, 2013-17).
Bennett also suited up for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys, finishing with 69.5 sacks in his career.
