ATHENS — Stetson Bennett means business these days, on and off the field.

The departing University of Georgia quarterback made more than $1 million in NIL earnings last year and is poised to make much, much more if he can find his way into the NFL.

To that end, Bennett is expected to announce a deal to sign with agent Chris Cabbot, who represents Patrick Mahomes and Tua Tagovailoa.

Bennett is projected by some teams as a fifth-round NFL draft pick after helping Georgia win back-to-back CFP Championship Games after the 2021 and 2022 seasons over Alabama (33-18) and TCU (65-7) these past two seasons.

Bennett could improve his draft stock next week in Mobile, Ala., should he choose to compete at the Senior Bowl all-star game.

The ups and downs of Bennett’s career have been well-documented, from his transfer out and back into UGA after a junior college stop, to his ability to overcome his coaches and critics.

Bennett now finds himself among elite clientele teed up with yet another opportunity to prove himself on the football field against other elite players at the Senior Bowl.

TCU’s Max Duggan will be among the other quarterbacks in attendance, and if Bennett accepts his invitation as expected, he would be coached by Chicago offensive coordinator Luke Getsy.

The Bears, of course, run a system friendly to mobile quarterbacks like Bennett — and their current QB, Justin Fields.

The Atlanta Falcons are thought to be another NFL team that could be interested in selecting Bennett for his mobility, and obviously, popularity in the local market.

The fact Bennett could be represented by the same agent who represents mobile QBs Mahomes and Tagovailoa is an indicator their respective franchises might also have some degree of interest.

If history is an indicator, Bennett will be eager to make the most of any opportunity he is granted to continue his football career.
