Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today —Monday, February 6 — about your Seattle Seahawks: 

Bennett Brothers Share Super Bowl Memory

Last night's thrilling Super Bowl LI matchup between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons was a special moment for Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett.

Bennett's younger brother, Martellus, was a member of the Patriots team that overcame a 28-3 deficit and claimed a 34-28 victory in overtime against the Falcons to give them their fifth championship in franchise history. It was the first of Martellus' NFL career, though, and it clinched championship rings for both of the Bennett brothers individually (Michael was with Seahawks in 2013 when they won Super Bowl XLVIII).

Postgame, Martellus joined NFL Network and talked about witnessing Michael's win and mentioned the call of confidence his brother gave him leading up to the game. 

"I've seen my brother win a championship, and I watched him and I cried when he won the championship because I was so happy for him," Bennett said. "He told me how he felt, but I couldn't feel it for myself. This morning he called me and said, 'by 10 o'clock tonight you're going to be a champion.'

Michael joined the set shortly after and said: "I'm just super excited for my brother to feel this moment. Everything you do in the sport is to get here. If you're not trying to be a champion, you ain't trying to do nothing. I'm just happy for him. I can't say too many words, I'm just happy for him."
