Michael Bennett Headed To Philadelphia In Trade

Michael Bennett Headed To Philadelphia In Trade

The addition of Bennett will allow the Eagles to explore a potential trade of defensive end Vinny Curry. The Seahawks did everything short of giving him away (a swap of Day 3 draft picks, plus wide receiver Marcus Johnson), and the Eagles were glad to take him off their hands.

The Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles just bolstered their defensive line. He recorded 40 tackles and 8.5 sacks in 2017, a bounce-back year from his injury-plagued 2016.

By trading Bennett, the Seahawks would be able to save $2.2 million in 2018 salary cap space and $21 million over the final three seasons of his current contract.

Carroll suggested at his season-ending presser that the non-football issues may have impacted Bennett's play. Most reasoned that it was because Seattle wanted to "quiet down the team".

Bennett will most likely serve as a rotational guy along with Eagles second-year veteran Derek Barnett if the Eagles do happen to move Curry. The Seahawks are also sending a seventh-round choice to Philadelphia.

The league is buzzing, and the Seahawks players as well, that Richard Sherman will soon be hitting the bricks too.

Taking to Twitter, Bennett posted a photo of himself in an Eagles jersey while mentioning imprisoned Philadelphia legend Meek Mill.

Bennett is set to count $6.65 million against the cap, according to Spotrac, compared to Curry's number of $11 million. They had claimed the Lombardi Trophy on February 4 in Minneapolis, edging the New England Patriots, 41-33, for the franchise's first Super Bowl title. During his time there, he racked up 185 combined tackles, 31 sacks, and four forced fumbles.

"I'll be fine", Bennett said after the loss to Arizona. He re-signed with the Seahawks in 2013 and has been in Seattle ever since, making three consecutive Pro Bowls.
