Seahawks reportedly trade Michael Bennett to Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles had a dominant defensive line that helped lead them to a championship in 2017, and the unit has already gotten better this offseason.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to trade Michael Bennett and a seventh-round pick to the Eagles for a fifth-round pick and wide receiver Marcus Johnson.

There have already been rumblings that the Eagles could part ways with defensive end Vinny Curry if he does not agree to take a pay cut, and that now seems more likely.
Bennett has been one of the most consistent players in football for several years now, and he recorded 8.5 sacks for the Seahawks last season. He’s 32, but he has shown no signs of slowing down just yet. He could be a force with the Eagles alongside Fletcher Cox, Derek Barnett and Brandon Graham.
