Bennett, who is not to be confused with the Michael Bennett that plays for the New England Patriots, spent the first three-plus seasons of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars before landing in Atlanta last season. The former Ohio State Buckeye appeared in two games for the Falcons in 2018 and recorded five total tackles.
