Patriots close to Michael Bennett trade with Eagles

Patriots close to Michael Bennett trade with Eagles

Whatever happens, just to know that whatever team I go to I want to get paid more than I am now. Bennett's 68 pressures were 5th in the National Football League last season.

Earlier Friday, Bennett appeared on NFL Network, knowing his time with the Eagles would soon be over.

Not long after Michael Bennett said he wanted a pay raise from the Philadelphia Eagles, the Eagles were shipping him off.

- According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia Eagles have traded defensive end Michael Bennett and a seventh round draft pick to the New England Patriots in exchange for a fifth round draft pick.

As the New England Patriots to get ready for another season and look towards yet another Super Bowl title, Bennett will now step into Trey Flowers' place on the Patriots defensive line. He has accumulated pass-rushing grades of 70.0 or more in six of his 10 professional campaigns and ranked in the top-20 players at his position in five of those seasons, including one fourth-place finish (2014) and one 11th place finish (2015).




If that's something that the Patriots wish to continue doing, Bennett should fit the mold pretty easily, as he himself has been no slouch from an interior alignment. Historically, the Patriots aren't quick to give out expensive long-term contracts to even the elite players they have.

This is a chess move by Belichick and the Patriots, who game the free agent. Philadelphia re-signed Brandon Graham to a three-year deal last week.

In 2016, Bennett had 55 catches for 701 yards and seven touchdowns. He is projected to start opposite Derek Barnett, who was placed on injured reserve in October following shoulder surgery. Of course you always wanna be with the team that you played with.

On the contrary, Bennett had nine sacks last season and 8.5 the season before.
