Seahawks Trade Defensive End Michael Bennett To Eagles

Report: Michael Bennett Traded to Eagles for Marcus Johnson, Draft Pick Upgrade

The Seahawks had no immediate confirmation of the trade as the move can not become official until March 14, when the new league year begins.

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson and Adam Schefter, the Seattle Seahawks have traded defensive end Michael Bennett to the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2017 the 32-year-old had 8.5 sacks and reached his third Pro Bowl.

Carroll suggested at his season-ending presser that the non-football issues may have impacted Bennett's play. Only two players, Houston's J.J. Watt and Cincinnati's Carlos Dunlap, have more quarterback hits than Bennett over the past five seasons.

Curry won't be the only player from the Super Bowl-winning roster getting his marching orders.

Bennett signed a three-year extension with the Seahawks in December 2016.

Johnson, who has run the 40 in 4.36 seconds, gives Seattle insurance if it loses speedy wide receiver Paul Richardson in free agency.

According to latest available government data, 150,785 people died in road accidents in India in 2016, averaging 413 deaths a day. As per eyewitnesses present near the spot, the driver of the truck lost control and the truck fell into a drain in Bhavnagar .

"I'll be fine", Bennett said after the loss to Arizona.

The Eagles have a rotation that will consist of Bennett, Graham, Barnett, Long, and possibly Steven Means at defensive end. You love the players that you played with.

Given his ability to move inside and play defensive tackle, Bennett was arguably one of the best values in football. Bennett will cost just over $6 million against the cap this year, but the team will be able to part ways with him at anytime without suffering any cap penalties.

The Texas A&M alum initially joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2009, but was released before the start of his rookie season, spending four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before signing with Seattle. Just seems like it's a young man's game. Whether it had an impact or not, I don't know.

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