Seattle Seahawks Trade Away Outspoken Michael Bennett To The Philly

The Seahawks decided defensive end Michael Bennett's time with the team was up despite him earning three-straight Pro Bowl selections and winning a Super Bowl for Seattle. Considering that Curry had a decent season, it probably won't be too complicated for the Eagles to find a trade recipient. The defense ranked in the top 11 every season Bennett has played in Seattle. Jenkins demonstrated during the national anthem for a season-plus before the Players Coalition's partnership with the NFL was announced in late November. With an MVP-caliber quarterback, a stout cast of offensive skill players, and a fear-inducing lineup in the trenches, they were able to steamroll their way to the Super Bowl, where they would effectively be crowned champions of the NFL. Bennett's first tweet since being traded sums him up in a nut shell.

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

A small group of players, namely 49ers safety Eric Reid, criticized Jenkins after he made a decision to stop demonstrating during the national anthem midway through last season. His sack total was tied for the third highest of his career.

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.

Sailors are expected to participate in cultural and professional exchanges during community service projects and receptions. Le, however, added that China knows Vietnam is not likely to side with the USA militarily to challenge Chinese expansion.

This trade does mean that the Eagles could be moving another lineman, though. Jenkins, defensive end Chris Long and wide receiver Torrey Smith have been some of the more active players on the social justice front.

If he wants to keep playing, however, he might have to join another team or restructure his contract with the Eagles. While viewed as a solid blocking tight end, his production in the passing game has been declining.

The Eagles appear to have gotten Bennett for a considerably cheap price, and from a certain perspective, this makes sense.
