Eagles to trade Michael Bennett to Patriots; Martellus Bennett wants reunion

Even without the raise, Bennett was expected to count $7.2 million towards the cap in 2019.

Ezekiel Ansah, Lions: Ansah is an intriguing option among the defensive ends that will hit the open market.

The 6-foot-4, 274-pound Bennett might be able to do some of the same things as Flowers, but it's notable that most defenses he has been part of over his 10-year career have played a notably different style. The Bucs finished last in the NFC South that season, and Bennett absolutely did not care for Schiano's style, later calling a Schiano a "stiff" that wasn't fun to play for as a player.

The New England Patriots won a Super Bowl with one set of brothers in 2018. If he is, the Eagles should give him a chance to do it in Philadelphia. Based on his 2018 tape, this may be one of the better bargains of the 2019 offseason, because Bennett is still fully capable of consistent disruption from several different angles.

Defensive end Michael Bennett is in, so does that mean Trey Flowers is out?

Because of this, many defensive linemen who play in New England have relayed that it takes a certain selflessness to thrive in the scheme. "I know Martellus Bennett was talking about taking less salary, trying to stick around so the Patriots could then trade for his brother". Given up on by Jacksonville, Fowler saved his career in Los Angeles, showing the flashes of potential that made him the 3rd overall pick in 2015.

On principle, I don't believe in trading talented, productive players at premium positions. At just 24-years old, however, Fowler still has plenty of upside and could end up being a steal for the Eagles.
