#CBC: “Super Bowl champion Eagles acquire DE Michael Bennett from Seahawks” #Toronto #Montreal #Calgary #Ottawa #Canada
Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett is joining the Super Bowl champions, after Seattle agreed to trade Bennett to the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday.
The Seahawks will part with a seventh-round pick and Bennett in return for a fifth-rounder and wide receiver Marcus Johnson, according to multiple reports.
Bennett, 32, is owed around $21 million US over the next three years, though none of that money is guaranteed. His cap hit in 2018 is $6.65 million.
The Eagles are currently estimated to be more than $15 million over the cap, meaning several veterans could be released or traded before the start of the league year on March 14.
With Bennett’s arrival, defensive end Vinny Curry ($11 million cap hit, $5 million in potential savings) could be among that group.
