And in classic Bennett fashion, he had Pete Carroll doubled over in laughter seconds into their conversation opening his line of questioning with, “Everybody at home wants to know, why did you trade me?”

With KING 5 serving as the Seahawks’ new preseason television partner, the Seahawks debuted a new broadcast team that featured longtime preseason play-by-play man Curt Menefee joined by a pair of Seahawks Legends, Michael Robinson and Bennett.

As expected for someone with Michael Robinson’s combination of intelligence, personality and on-air experience with the NFL Network, the former Seahawks fullback provided excellent insight and analysis throughout the broadcast. But it was Bennett’s blunt humor that stole the show and made Seattle’s preseason finale at Dallas—this week’s game against Chicago will be broadcast nationally on ESPN—feel like must-see TV even if the final score may not have a ton of importance.

Bennett also pointed out the humor in the Seahawks fielding a secondary featuring famous names like Michael Jackson and Coby Bryant, then proceeded to make as many Mike Jackson puns as possible, including “I haven’t seen that kind of coverage since ‘Billie Jean.'”
