Michael Bennett Headed To Philadelphia In Trade


NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Wednesday that Bennett will be traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, along with a seventh-round pick, for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick. He had a respectable 2017 season - making his third straight Pro Bowl - with 8.5 sacks and 24 quarterback hits in 16 games, all while dealing with injuries.

Carroll suggested at his season-ending presser that the non-football issues may have impacted Bennett's play. Bennett played in two Super Bowls with the Seahawks, including winning Super Bowl XLVIII.

This was actually Bennett's second stint in Seattle. By trading him before he was owed a $3 million roster bonus on March 18, Seattle also will save $21 million in cash over the remaining three seasons of his extension that he signed in 2016.

For Seattle, acquiring Johnson gives them a bit of security if Paul Richardson departs via free agency.

Despite nagging injuries, Bennett was still a disruptive force for the Seahawks a year ago. The move fortifies an already fearsome Eagles pass rush and brings another experienced played into Philadelphia's locker room. You love the organization and you love the players that you played with. The Eagles are approximately $10 million over the $177.2-million salary cap. I've won a lot of games. This is a part of football.

Bennett figured his time was up earlier this year with the Seahawks likely looking to go younger after they went 9-7, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2012. "There are so many great players on this team and it's a great organization".

Along the way he not only earned a reputation as one of the team's best players - his 39 sacks are fifth in team history - but also one of its most interesting, unafraid to do or say anything. Whether it had an impact or not, I don't know.
