  • Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett warms up prior to a regular-season game against the Redskins

Bennett, 33, was still very productive last season, posting 34 combined tackles, nine sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games, 10 of which he started.

Bennett, a three-time Pro Bowler (2015-17), who has already won a Super Bowl ring with Seattle, is being traded for the second straight March, having been deemed too expensive for Philadelphia to keep.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer first reported the news. Still, Some feel that Bennett could still contribute enough on defense to warrant a bigger contract and shipping him to the Super Bowl champs has caused an uproar with many fans.

He was acquired from the Seahawks in exchange for a fifth-round pick a year ago and ultimately became one of the Eagles' most productive defensive players, accumulating nine sacks and 78 total quarterback pressures. He is scheduled to earn a base salary of $6.2 million in 2019 with a $1 million roster bonus.

During an appearance on NFL Network's Good Morning Football on Friday, Bennett said he did not want to take a pay cut amid the trade reports. Ansah averaged one quarterback pressure every five rushes at the quarterback last season, which was actually better than the pressure Bennett averaged in every 7.6 snaps in 2018. As a result, Philadelphia is trading the star defensive end to the Patriots.

Naturally, people were quick to point to the Bennett trade and say that this spells the end of Trey Flowers The Patriot.

Michael's brother, Martellus, played for the Patriots in 2017.

The problem, of course, is that Schiano is New England's new defensive coordinator. The likelihood of Flowers remaining a Patriot just slimmed down tremendously.

Well, that could hold some weight (especially if Bennett gets that raise he wants), but have we considered that maybe Bennett is here to replace Adrian Clayborn?
