Eagles trade with Seahawks for DE Michael Bennett

Michael Bennett, a three-time Pro Bowler, is reportedly on his way to Philadelphia. Apparently, they have found a suitor: the Eagles.

The Texas A&M alum initially joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2009, but was released before the start of his rookie season, spending four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before signing with Seattle. Last season it would have been $15.831 million. With an MVP-caliber quarterback, a stout cast of offensive skill players, and a fear-inducing lineup in the trenches, they were able to steamroll their way to the Super Bowl, where they would effectively be crowned champions of the NFL.

Bennett, who sat during the national anthem last season to protest social issues, enters an organization that has been accepting of social advocates on the team.

That used to never bother the Seahawks; again, it may not bother them now as much as Bennett's cap figure does.

Simon's suggests that they wipe them out and cast the net further out to grab other communities and use them as resources. The biggest cliffhanger was seeing Rick bleeding out while leaning up against a tree full of hanging stained glass.

Bennett, 32, is due to earn $7.4m next season, the first of three remaining years on his contract, making him a poor fit for a Seattle team looking to get younger and cheaper on defense. He was inactive for most of the second half the season because he didn't figure into special teams. The only thing that has become quite clear is that the Eagles will look to move on from the veteran defensive end.

If teams are insistent on pushing their always-replaceable players overboard, the Eagles have no problem giving them a soft place to land. That is a considerably lower figure than Vinny Curry's hit of $11 million. He caught a career-low 13 passes for 130 yards and one touchdown during the 2017 regular season, then had one catch for 6 yards in the playoffs.

The Eagles' new third-down pass rush will have Bennett and Fletcher Cox on the inside, with Derek Barnett and Brandon Graham on the outside.
