Seahawks trade Michael Bennett to Eagles

Seahawks trade Michael Bennett to Eagles

The Super Bowl champion Eagles still have moves to make to get under the salary cap before the new league year - and free agency period - opens in one week.

The Eagles acquired three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday, three people familiar with the trade told The Associated Press.

Bennett was second on the Seahawks with 8.5 sacks in 2017 and again led the team's defensive linemen in playing time by a wide margin.

Carroll suggested at his season-ending presser that the non-football issues may have impacted Bennett's play.

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. Bennett played in two Super Bowls with the Seahawks, including winning Super Bowl XLVIII.

Bennett has yet to play a game under the three-year contract extension the Seahawks gave him for $29.5 million through the 2020 season in December 2016. He ran a reported 4.42 coming out of and the Seahawks were undoubtedly looking to add a speedy receiver with the possibility that Paul Richardson - who will be a free agent beginning March 14 - may not return.

"I'll be fine", Bennett said after the loss to Arizona. ". You love the organization". I've won a lot of games. You love the players that you played with. "It's part of football". The Eagles are approximately $10 million over the $177.2-million salary cap.

He was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M in 2009.

Johnson, 23, may fit most immediately as a speedy option on special teams if the ESPN proves true.

The Eagles weren't supposed to get better this offseason. Just seems like it's a young man's game. When healthy, Bennett is one of the most disruptive pass rushers in the NFL.
