Philadelphia Eagles trade for Seahawks DE Michael Bennett

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett walks off the field after a pregame warmup before a game against the Los Angeles Rams

According to a report by ESPN reporter Josina Anderson, Philadelphia is set to acquire Bennett via trade. No trades can be official until the start of the league year next week. It's also possible the Eagles could look to negotiate a lower yearly salary for Bennett after the season if they like what they see. Cutting him would save the Patriots $6 million against the cap.

Who is Michael Bennett?

This year his cap hit would have been $8.383 million and with other gaping holes in their roster, it's one they didn't want to swallow for a guy that was outperformed by his own backup. Of course, there was no better fit for Bennett in his prime than Seattle, as a player and a unique personality, in a locker room full of them. Jenkins demonstrated during the national anthem for a season-plus before the Players Coalition's partnership with the NFL was announced in late November.

Staff at the nightclub told police they hadn't seen anything untoward. "Oh my Lord", Cuban said. "I filed the report because what he did was wrong", she said.

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

Bennett, 33, registered 8.5 sacks previous year, despite dealing with knee injuries and a torn plantar fascia in his foot.

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. But even so, Bennett will join an edge rushing unit stacked with names such as Graham, Barnett, Chris Long, and Steven Means.

Bennett first signed with the Seahawks in 2009, after going undrafted. Johnson, 24 in August, caught five passes for 45 yards across 10 games for the Super Bowl champs last season and is a special teams cog.
