Michael Bennett trade puts Philadelphia Eagles in tough spot

DEVELOPING: Pats working on trade for DE Bennett

Bennett tallied 34 tackles (15 for a loss) 30 QB hits and 9 sacks.

Sources told ESPN and the Philadelphia Inquirer on Friday that the Eagles will send Bennett and a seventh-round pick in 2020 in exchange for the Patriots' fifth-round choice in the 2020 NFL Draft. Bennett had already established himself as one of the league's best multi-gap pass-rushers, but this was above and beyond.

Friday, Bennett addressed those rumors and something he said might now make it more likely that that the Eagles release him than trade him. "I actually want a pay raise at this point", Bennett said. Bennett didn't have a sack in the game, but he did generate five quarterback hits, a holding penalty, and he changed the entire structure of New England's passing game-fearful of Bennett's mad rush to the pocket, they went with quicker drops and more angular routes. Historically, the Patriots aren't quick to give out expensive long-term contracts to even the elite players they have.

So add it all up, and it has the potential of a good value move for the Patriots, assuming the outspoken Bennett buys in to the Patriots' culture like his brother Martellus did in 2016, and continues to be a disruptive presence on the field. 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.

He will now join the Super Bowl champions as a replacement for Trey Flowers, a pending free agent who is now all but guaranteed to sign elsewhere this offseason. The likelihood of Flowers remaining a Patriot just slimmed down tremendously. But at the same time, I know it' a business and you want to be able to make money whenever you get the opportunities to.
