Eagles send message in Mike Bennett trade

Eagles send message in Mike Bennett trade

Michael Bennett is a three-time Pro Bowler in the National Football League that is heading into his 10th season.

Sherman, who's spent his first seven NFL seasons in Seattle, will hold talks with he Seahawks over his unsettled future from Las Vegas, where the NFL Player's Association will hold their annual meeting Thursday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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.

Another Seahawks defender from their Super Bowl championship team is apparently gone.

There are also some valid financial reasons for unloading Bennett, even if the contract he signed late in 2016 means that if the Seahawks deal him now they will have essentially paid him an extra $8.5 million they didn't have to if they had just let his old contract lapse. In the trade, they picked up a young receiver in Johnson, which was needed after they'll be losing Paul Richardson in free agency.

"I'll be fine", Bennett said then.

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. You love the organization and you love the players that you played with. This is a part of football. According to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports, it isn't anticipated to stop there, as there will likely be several other star players on the move this offseason. Cutting Curry prior to June 1 would give the Eagles $5 million in cap relief next season, but they'd still have $6 million in dead cap. From 2013 until now, he's effectively anchored Seattle's defensive line, racking up 39 sacks over that time period.

Johnson, 23, may fit most immediately as a speedy option on special teams if the ESPN proves true. He did his best to handle it and that's all he could do.
