Michael Bennett To The Eagles

Howie Roseman is at it again. Earlier today talks about Richard Sherman departing from the Seahawks arose, then seemingly out of no where the Seahawks traded DE Michael Bennent and a 7th round pick to the Eagles for a 5th round pick and WR Marcus Johnson.

Howie Roseman at this point has become a master of finesse. First he got Jay Ajayi for a 4th round pick and now this? Howie has been putting in some major work since last offseason and he doesn’t seem to be stopping.

Bennett now joins the league’s best defensive line and he’s going to be a great addition. Last season Bennett had 8.5 sacks, 25 tackles and 15 tackle assists. This elite defensive line is gonna have the rest of the league’s QB’s shitting their pants every time they drop back to pass the ball. The Eagles clearly had the best defensive line in the league last year , allowing an average of 80.8 rushing yards per game, with the addition of Bennett we should start talking about the possibility of this group being one of the best defensive lines OF ALL TIMEFullSizeRender-2

This trade however most likely means Vinny Curry’s days in Philadelphia are coming to an end. There were already talks of the team releasing him and now this move opens up exploring trade options for Curry. He has always been an underrated player on this team and we appreciate all he’s done for us and wish nothing but the best for him in the future if he does end up released or traded.

The Eagles keep finding ways to improve on this road to repeat and I am excited to see how the rest of the offseason plays out. #FlyEaglesFly
