Philadelphia Eagles: Michael Bennett Bolsters Philly's Title Defense

The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to acquire three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks, according to various reports.

The team had not yet announced the deal as of 3:30 p.m. This will allow the Eagles to look for a trade for Vinny Curry if they still wish to do so. The Eagles are approximately $10 million over the $177.2-million salary cap. The Eagles already have $10.6 million committed to Zach Ertz in 2018 - and more than $28 million from 2019-2021 - which makes it almost impossible for them to keep Burton unless he's willing to give up several million to stay in a backup role.

Pass rush is one of the Patriots' biggest areas of need entering 2018, as they never sufficiently replaced Chris Long, Jabaal Sheard and Rob Ninkovich following their departures last offseason.

Bennett will count $6.7 million against the cap this season.

The Eagles already had one of the best pass rushes in the National Football League last season on their way to the first Super Bowl title in franchise history.

In what seems to be yet another loss in Bollywood, a veteran actress Shammi Aunty aka Nargis Rabadi passed away on Tuesday. Bachchan and Shammi had acted together in the film " Khuda Gawah " which also starred Sridevi.

Bennett registerd eight and a half sacks this season and has 54 for his career.

Curry paced the Eagles with 41 hurries in 2017 but finished with just three sacks.

In Johnson, the Eagles are losing a lightly-used 23-year-old wide receiver. He was inactive for most of the second half of the season and the playoffs, however, in favor of rookie Shelton Gibson. The Eagles had been trying to restructure his deal but this move probably ended those talks.

Celek, 33, has indicated he has no plans to retire from the NFL.

Along the way he not only earned a reputation as one of the team's best players - his 39 sacks are fifth in team history - but also one of its most interesting, unafraid to do or say anything. The Eagles can save about $4.3 million in 2018 by parting with Peters. He ended up being waived by the team before seeing any game time.
