Reports: Seahawks' Michael Bennett traded to Eagles


RENTON, Wash. -- Multiple reports say Seahawks' defensive lineman Michael Bennett has been traded to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Adam Schefter of ESPN says the Seahawks will also send a seventh-round pick to the Eagles in exchange for a fifth-round pick and wide receiver Marcus Johnson.

The reports come at a time when the Seahawks, who finished out the playoffs last season, seem intent on major changes. On Wednesday, there was speculation that defensive back Richard Sherman will not be back.

The return of safety Kam Chancellor and defensive lineman Cliff Avril is also in doubt.

Bennett said at the end of the season that he didn't believe he would be back for the 2018 season.

He was apparently right.

Other reporters are filling in the details.

Rapoport said the deal was almost done Tuesday, but a third team became involved. That stalled the deal.


Bennett, 32, joined the Seahawks in 2009 as an undrafted free agent. He was waived during the season.

He was picked up by Tampa Bay, where he played through the 2012 season.

He rejoined the Seahawks and played in two Super Bowls for the team.
