Seahawks deal Michael Bennett to Eagles, report says

Michael Bennett

The Philadelphia Eagles have reportedly traded for Seattle Seahawks defensive end, Michael Bennett.

Bennett, 32, had 8.5 sacks last season and has 54 during his 10-year career. If the report from Wednesday is true of a trade the Eagles will now pick up that contract, plus a seventh-round pick from Seattle in exchange for Philadelphia sending a choice at the end of the fifth round.

Another Seattle Seahawks defender from their NFL Super Bowl championship team is gone after Michael Bennett used Twitter to confirm his move to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Last season, Bennett counted up 25 tackles, 9 sacks and a pass defense in 16 starts. The Eagles were working to restructure Curry's contract in an attempt to keep him, but the arrival of Bennett is likely to accelerate trade talks.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network created a buzz on Tuesday when he reported that the Seahawks are nearly certain to deal Bennett as they look to "quiet things down" heading into 2018.

Bennett is a good player, but he's also been one of the most overrated defensive players in the league over the last few years. Cutting him would save the Patriots $6 million against the cap.

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz also appeared excited about Bennett's arrival.

A small group of players, namely 49ers safety Eric Reid, criticized Jenkins after he made a decision to stop demonstrating during the national anthem midway through last season.

Quarterback - Russell Wilson is the only quarterback on the roster signed for next season, leaving the Seahawks vulnerable.

Earlier in the day, Seahawks defensive back Jeremy Lane tweeted a vague statement that seemed to indicate cornerback Richard Sherman would not return to the team.

Johnson, 23, was an undrafted free agent out of Texas who played in 10 games with Philadelphia a year ago, catching five passes for 45 yards.
