Patriots finalizing trade to acquire Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett

Grading the Eagles’ offseason moves Trading Michael Bennett to the Patriots for a meager return

He had 34 total tackles, 9.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and one pass defensed. The 31-year-old, who turns 32 on March 10, actually played a key role in the Patriots' Super Bowl LI victory over the Falcons.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer first reported the news.

Still, the addition of the 33-year-old Bennett doesn't mean the Patriots no longer need the 26-year-old Flowers.

Bennett played five additional seasons in Seattle before spending one year with the Eagles.

The Patriots are giving up the coin flip proposition of 2020 fifth-round pick, to get an immediate contributor in Bennett along with a 2020 seventh-round pick. He is scheduled to earn a base salary of $6.2 million in 2019 with a $1 million roster bonus.

On Friday morning, Michael Bennett was on NFL Network and asked for a raise. Well, after watching Bennett make an impact on defense by finishing with nine sacks, it's safe to say this was a great addition for Philadelphia, and expectations would be high once again heading into 2019. Per PFF, Bennett recorded 78 total quarterback pressures as an Eagle last season, tying him with the Texans' J.J. Watt and New England's Trey Flowers for the third-most among National Football League edge defenders. "So just to know that whatever team I go to, I want to be paid more than I'm getting paid right now".

The trade news comes after the Patriots opted not to place their franchise tag on free agent defensive end Trey Flowers. The likelihood of Flowers remaining a Patriot just slimmed down tremendously. "Of course you want to be with the team you're with, but at the same time it's a business, and you want to be able to make money whenever you get the opportunities to", Bennett said.
