Bennett confirms switch from Seahawks to Eagles

Bennett confirms switch from Seahawks to Eagles

Michael Bennett, a three-time Pro Bowler, is reportedly on his way to Philadelphia.

Bennett, who will be 33 in November, was hampered by knee and foot problems last season but still made the Pro Bowl.

The Eagles will be sending wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick back to Seattle in the deal, according to ESPN and The Associated Press.

Bennett shared his own reaction on his Twitter account in typical Bennett fashion.

Bennett, 32, has three years left on his four-year extension worth $39 million signed in December 2016.




Bennett will most likely serve as a rotational guy along with Eagles second-year veteran Derek Barnett if the Eagles do happen to move Curry.

Another report from ESPN said Sherman, a member of the executive council of the league's players' union for years, was on his way to Las Vegas for meetings with the NFL Players' Association. 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.

Celek is now the longest-tenured Philadelphia professional athlete, having joined the Eagles as a fifth-round draft pick in 2007.

How much of reports of the Seahawks wanting theirs to be "quiet ... compared to over the last couple years" were valid, and whether that really was the motivation to trade Bennett, is in question.

Cornerback - Richard Sherman appears to be leaving following an achillies injury, leaving the Seahawks with Jeremy Lane and Shaquill Griffin. He had just five receptions for 45 yards last season, but can provide Seattle with some insurance for fellow speedster Paul Richardson, who could leave in free agency. And in just a year or two, the Eagles, who are far above the allotted salary cap as it is, will need to make the hard decision of paying who they can and cutting ties with all others.
