Tempers flared following the Seattle Seahawks' loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday, but Michael Bennett may have taken his anger one step too far.
According to USA Today's Dan Wolken, the Seahawks' defensive end was visibly frustrated following the 36-20 defeat, and allegedly threatened a reporter while being questioned about the pass rush.
Per Wolken, Bennett berated and then threatened the reporter, who remains unnamed at the moment.
Bennett had a questionable night all around and also possibly tried to gouge a Falcons offensive lineman's eye, following an injury scare in the third quarter. Bennett finished the game with a sack and a tackle, but his anger was clearly a factor in the game.
Expect the NFL to look closely into Bennett's conduct both on, and off the field.
