Michael Bennett admitted he pretended to be Russell Wilson to get a table at a restaurant

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett attempted to make a reservation at a Seattle eatery this week.

“But they told me they were all booked up,” Bennett told 710 ESPN radio interview.

Bennett decided to call back and act like Russell Wilson.

“I called them back a few minutes later,” he said. “I said, ‘Hey, this is Russell Wilson. I’ll be attending your restaurant today. Do you have any tables?’

“And she was like, ‘Yes! We can make a table for you! You were 22-for-30 the other night, 130 quarterback rating!’ She knew every stat.”

Bennett said he changed his voice on the phone in an attempt to sound like his quarterback.

“I got to the restaurant with my wife and kids,” Bennett said. “I said, ‘Oh, thank you. I’m Russell Wilson.’ She was like, ‘Good joke.’ I said, ‘Gotcha.’ ”

Bennett said the restaurant still treated them well.

“She took me to the table and they had it roped off,” Bennett said. “They had sparkling water and everything.”
