A strange one.

I was expecting Curry to be cut to create cap room, leaving us with Graham, Long and Barnett and needing a cheap veteran to compete with Means for the final spot.

Instead we've just used one of our few draft picks to add an expensive 32 year old.

I'm not quibbling over Bennett's ability, just how his addition affects our already strained cap situation.

I'd wager a few moves are in the works. We drop Curry, add a Pro-Bowler, and it costs us a 5th round pick. It's a great move, provided we can keep Bennett out of Las Vegas.

*It's pretty obvious by now Seattle is blowing up their roster - as a fan this must suck, but it's the perfect time for that organization to realize their SB runs are over with that group. Shopping some of their guys now will reap large rewards in draft picks and young players, and they could be back in business not too long from now.
