Another day, another pass rusher.

Michael Bennett, a free-agent defensive end from the Buccaneers who had nine sacks last season, signed his contract with the Seahawks today. Bennett agreed to terms late Thursday, just after the team had announced the signing of Cliff Avril, a free-agent defensive end from the Lions who produced 9.5 and 11 sacks the past two seasons.

Bennett entered the league with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2009. But he was released in October of his rookie season to clear a roster spot of an offensive tackle and the Bucs claimed him. In three-plus seasons in Tampa, the 6-foot-4, 274-pound Bennett had 114 tackles and 15 sacks.

“They improved their pass rush; I believe Michael Bennett is a very good signing,” former NFL executive Charley Casserly wrote at NFL.com, where he is an analyst.

In the first four days of the free-agency period, the Seahawks have acquired receiver/returner/runner Percy Harvin in a trade with the Vikings and signed Avril and Bennett.
