Instant analysis of Eagles trade for Michael Bennett

Instant analysis of Eagles trade for Michael Bennett”

Amid reports that cornerback Richard Sherman is on his way out the door, defensive lineman Michael Bennett is being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Bennett played in two Super Bowls with the Seahawks, including winning Super Bowl XLVIII.

The deal won't be officially announced until the NFL's league year opens next Wednesday.

Seattle gets wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick, while Philadelphia also receives a seventh-round pick.

Like several members of the Eagles championship team, Bennett has been vocal about social justice issues and has demonstrated during the national anthem to bring attention to his activism aims. He is coming off a Pro Bowl season in which he ranked second on the team with 8 1/2 sacks, though he said after Seattle's final game he "probably won't be back next year". The Eagles got some pretty great value out of a veteran end like Chris Long, so why not take a shot on Bennett? However, the trade might mean Philadelphia could explore trade options for defensive end Vinny Curry. Considering that Curry had a decent season, it probably won't be too complicated for the Eagles to find a trade recipient. It looks like the Eagles will continue to build on their defensive line dominance this offseason.
