On March 7th, 2018, around 2:30 P.M Eastern time, word broke that veteran defensive end Michael Bennett and a 7th round pick would be traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a 5th round pick and wide receiver Marcus Johnson. And for Eagle’s fans, all they can say is “Howie has done it again.”

Bennett comes to Philadelphia with three years remaining on his contract, and the three-time Pro-Bowl selection will most likely be taking over the role previously assigned to Vinny Curry. With the Eagles currently about $10 Million over the cap, there will no doubt be more changes on the defending Super Bowl Champions roster, specifically on the defensive line.

For the Eagles, their defensive line was undoubtedly one of, if not the, best unit in all of football. While the trade will not be official until March 14th, the addition of Bennett will only make them stronger and adding another veteran pass-rusher into the locker room will only increase the chances of the Eagles successfully defending their title in 2018.

However, look for Bennett to play both defensive end and defensive tackle next year. With names like Bennett, Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett, Timmy Jernigan, Chris Long and Fletcher Cox, the Eagles will arguably have the most feared defensive line in all of football.
