Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman could leave Seattle Seahawks

Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman could leave Seattle Seahawks

Bennett's impending arrival in Philadelphia, a team with cap issues of their own, could mean the end for a number of their Super Bowl-winning team, including wide receiver Torrey Smith and tight end Brent Celek.

While at Texas, Johnson accumulated 793 yards receiving on 61 receptions and 4 touchdowns between 2013 and 2015.

Depending on the various reports coming out of Seattle recently, Michael Bennett was too old, too expensive or not "quiet" enough to stay with the Seahawks.

Bennett has been one of the most disruptive defensive linemen in the National Football League, averaging eight sacks per season and earning three Pro Bowl berths since 2013. After rumblings last off-season that the Seahawks were looking to trade the former three-time All-Pro defensive back, it appears it's actually happening this year.

Seahawks acquired WR Marcus Johnson and a 2018 fifth-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for DL Michael Bennett and a 2018 seventh-round pick.

The satellite, built by Space Systems Loral, is equipped with 40 Ku-band transponders, seven Ka beams and 10 C-band transponders. About the launch, CEO Elon Musk said, "At first, it sounds really easy: Just stick two first stages on as strap-on boosters".

The Eagles' new third-down pass rush will have Bennett and Fletcher Cox on the inside, with Derek Barnett and Brandon Graham on the outside.

Bennett was a leader in the NFL's player protest movement, including sitting for the national anthem prior to most games.

By trading Bennett, the Seahawks would be able to save $2.2 million in 2018 salary cap space and $21 million over the final three seasons of his current contract. Following his release that October, Bennett landed with the Buccaneers, where he played four seasons.

One of the most active wheelers-and-dealers league-wide, the Eagles have just begun fine-tuning for another deep playoff run.

He could in the mix to replace WR Paul Richardson, an unrestricted free agent who may not re-sign with Seattle.
