Report: Michael Bennett Traded to Eagles for Marcus Johnson, Draft Pick Upgrade

An NFL Network report, based on a series of tweets, surfaced that the Eagles, needing to trim salary to be compliant with the expected cap number, are discussing options on the future of defensive end Vinny Curry.

Bennett is 32 and entering the second season of a three-year extension he signed in 2016.

The Seahawks on Wednesday traded veteran defensive end Michael Bennett to the Super Bowl champion Eagles, ESPN reported, citing unidentified sources. The Eagles will surrender a fifth-round pick and wide receiver Marcus Johnson for Bennett and a seventh-round pick.

Bennett shared his own reaction on his Twitter account in typical Bennett fashion. He had 8.5 sacks last season with the Seahawks, and appears to have plenty left in the tank.

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.

They had a great run with the likes of Bennett and other fearsome players on one of the league's most formidable defenses.

A small group of players, namely 49ers safety Eric Reid, criticized Jenkins after he chose to stop demonstrating during the national anthem midway through last season. They could cut him and save $5 million worth of cap space, trade him or - and this is the most unlikely - keep him on a restructured deal. In 2017 the line featured the fearsome two-some of Michael Bennett and Sheldon Richardson.

Roseman was able to construct a Super Bowl roster bey being targetedly aggressive in free agency, plucking Super Bowl winners LeGarrette Blount, Chris Long, Torrey Smith, and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery via free agency before leveraging middle-round draft picks to add young proven veterans to round out the roster.

Johnson, 23, a 6-1, 204-pound undrafted free agent from University of Texas, played in 10 games for the Eagles last season, catching five passes for 45 yards.
