Eagles Trade Defensive End Michael Bennett To New England Patriots

Grading the Eagles’ offseason moves Trading Michael Bennett to the Patriots for a meager return

"I feel like if you're on the trading block it's just a part of the game, but at the same time, I still know I'm still one of the best players in the National Football League".

Patriots and Eagles are finalizing a deal to send Michael Bennett to New England, per source. The Patriots have also had twin brothers Jacob and Cody Hollister on the roster for the past two seasons. The 29-year old has played 80 games in his career, totaling an impressive 48 sacks with 218 tackles, 110 quarterback hits and 60 tackles for a loss.

Martellus Bennett played 10 seasons in the league before retiring after New England released him last March.

With that production still there, and with future paydays dwindling given his age, it's no surprise that Bennett has been vocal about wanting a raise before the start of the 2019 season. Ansah's career has had plenty of ups-and-downs, as he has twice notched double-digit sacks - but those two seasons have been sandwiched by a year with two sacks and another with just four.

He turns 34 in November, wants to be a starter and said during an NFL Network interview that he wants a raise. From New York he made the jump to Chicago, where he spent three years with the Bears and earned a Pro Bowl spot in 2014.

Of course, this could mean very little in the grand scheme of things, as Bill Belichick has taken on a more hands-on approach with his defense in recent seasons, and that will likely remain the case with a first-year coordinator like Schiano in the picture. Who wants to help the rich get richer? The team still has the salary-cap space to do so after acquiring Bennett, while also leaving itself room to make other necessary moves.
