Michael Bennett News
The New England Patriots and defensive end Michael Bennett agreed to a reworked two-year deal on Tuesday with a base value of $16.75 million, including a $4 million signing bonus, according to sources. The move saves the Pats $700,000 in salary cap space this season. New England acquired Bennett from the Eagles this offseason in part to help fill the void left by Trey Flowers in free agency. The 33-year-old can still be effective in doses rushing the passer and had 34 tackles, nine sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games in his lone season with Philly in 2018.
The New England Patriots are working on a trade to acquire Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. New England will send a 2020 fifth-round pick to the Eagles for Bennett and a 2020 seventh-round selection. Bennett will make $7.2 million in 2019 and $8 million in 2020. The 33-year-old had nine sacks, 34 tackles, 22 quarterback hits and 44 pressures, including the playoffs, in his one and only season in Philly, and he'll help fill the void with Trey Flowers expected to receive a huge deal on the free-agent market.
Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Michael Bennett has been indicted on a felony charge for injuring someone at Super Bowl 51. Bennett was at the Super Bowl as a fan to watch his brother play, and allegedly pushed his way onto the field, shoving a 66-year-old paraplegic employee of Houston's NRG Stadium. Bennett is facing a possible penalty of 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The Eagles released a statement saying they are "aware of the situation involving Michael Bennett and are in the process of gathering more information. Because this is an ongoing legal matter, we will have no further comment at this time."
Brand new Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Michael Bennett has agreed to restructure his contract. Despite being up against the salary cap and having to make other moves to lower their cap hits, Bennett's restructure actually raises his cap number from $5.65 million to $7.375 million. $1.725 million of that will be given to him as a signing bonus and $4 million more can be earned through incentives. With more money this year, the Eagles will be better prepared to move on from Bennett next year with fewer cap issues.
The Philadelphia Eagles acquired defensive end Michael Bennett and a 2018 seventh-round pick from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a 2018 fifth-round pick. Bennett joins the Super Bowl Champions and their already stacked defensive line. He's 32, but still playing extremely well. Bennett will pair up with Fletcher Cox to wreak havoc on opposing offenses. This deal more or less means Vinny Curry won't be back with the Eagles next season.
