Bennett confirms switch from Seahawks to Eagles

Bennett confirms switch from Seahawks to Eagles”

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 has three years and $18 million remaining on his deal, but even still that's not a huge cap blow to take on.

Bennett had been mentioned in various trade rumors earlier in the week, and several teams made pushes to acquire the three-time Pro Bowler. Though Curry started every game for the Eagles at defensive end last season, his $11 million cap number for the 2018 season would be the fourth-highest on the team and gives Philadelphia incentive to move him.

Jordan returned from injury midway through the 2017 season and recorded 4.0 sacks in only five games, flashing some of the elite physical tools that led to his third-overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.

It appears as though the Seattle Seahawks are going to make some major shakeups on the defensive side of the ball this offseason. The Seahawks are likely to allow Sheldon Richardson to leave in free agency, and there is ample talk about Richard Sherman being moved in the coming hours/days.

Bennett has been one of the most outspoken National Football League players on social issues in recent years.

He signed with the Seahawks the following season and has been a staple on the defensive line ever since.

For his career, Bennett has 54 sacks, 210 tackles and eight forced fumbles in 293 games.

In the end, however, Seattle had to settle for a late-round pick as compensation, mainly due to Bennett's age, contract, and recent injury history. "There are so many great players on this team and it's a great organization".

NC State's Bradley Chubb is expected to be selected in the top 10, leaving him out of the equation. But they unquestionably want to get younger.
