The Eagles will add yet another fearsome defensive lineman in Michael Bennett to their front-four, according to Zach Berman and Jeff McLane’s reporting.
The trade can’t be made official until next week, but it looks like the Eagles will be sending a fifth-round pick and wide receiver Marcus Johnson to the Seahawks for the three-time Pro Bowler Michael Bennett and a seventh-round pick.
Several Eagles took to Twitter to welcome their new teammate, and Bennett — well-known for his speaking out for racial equality and social justice — identified the first cause he may take up during his time in Philly.
