Seahawks start purge, send Michael Bennett to Eagles

Share

The Eagles have acquired Seattle Seahawks veteran defensive end Michael Bennett in a trade. Rumors began circulating Wednesday that the cornerback told teammates he didn't expect to return to the Seahawks, and posts on social media by both Seattle cornerback Jeremy Lane and Sherman's own mother indicated that the Pro Bowler would be moving on.

Bennett had 8 ½ sacks last season and 54 in his nine-year career. In any event, Bennett represents a significant upgrade to the team's pass rush, although he's older than Curry. There will need to be some major shuffling of personnel with Vinny Curry, Chris Long still now on the roster and the Birds needing to shave at least $10 million dollars of salary off the roster by March 14.

Richard Sherman's tenure in Seattle could be coming to an end.

Remember that Seattle traded for Richardson before the start of last season when it became clear that top draft pick Malik McDowell would be unavailable for much of his rookie season after injuring himself in an ATV accident.

Clark is entering the final year of his rookie deal while Dion Jordan is a restricted free agent who is expected to be tendered.

But Bennett, who will turn 33 in November, has battled a succession of injuries the past few seasons, playing through foot and knee issues in 2017 and missing five games due to arthroscopic knee surgery.

Bennett has three years remaining on his contract, and the Seahawks will save $2.2 million against the salary cap in 2018 with his departure. Such minimal cap relief strongly suggests Seattle's decision to move on from Bennett was about more than just his production versus his price tag. The good news? With the depth of the Eagles defensive line, Bennett will be more of a spot player there, and Philly's locker room, on paper, is a good fit. Somebody get Eagles GM Howie Roseman and his calculator on the phone.

The Seahawks were rumored to be shopping Bennett for a week or so as they look to make over their team following a 9-7 season in 2017.

Multiple reports claim that the Seahawks will listen to offers regarding the safety, though it might take a lot for Seattle to pull the trigger on a trade.
