Eagles acquire DE Michael Bennett from Seattle

Richard Sherman

Another Seattle Seahawks defender from their NFL Super Bowl championship team is gone after Michael Bennett used Twitter to confirm his move to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Who is Michael Bennett? The acquisition of Bennett has provided them more assurance that trading Curry would be the best route for the franchise to take.

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.

Bennett is a good player, but he's also been one of the most overrated defensive players in the league over the last few years. It's unclear what moves may still come, but it appears as though the Seahawks will try to do it all over by drafting young talent to play around Russell Wilson.

Quarterback - Russell Wilson is the only quarterback on the roster signed for next season, leaving the Seahawks vulnerable. Frank Clark racked up nine sacks and 32 tackles in 2017. Between the Eagles' offensive and defensive lines, their drills in practice might be higher quality than some teams' entire actual games.

They said their earlier alliance with the BJP stands because two BJP Ministers did not resign from the NPF-led government. For the BJP, forming government in Nagaland will mean consolidating its position further in the north east.

Despite nagging injuries, Bennett was still a disruptive force for the Seahawks past year.

"I think I'm in my prime".

It wasn't that long ago that Richard Sherman was arguably the NFL's top corner, compared to the likes of Darrell Revis and Patrick Peterson.

Now the Seahawks have eight draft picks to work with this offseason to rebuild not just a dominant defense, but an offense that doesn't soly rely on the magic of Russell Wilson. But there are other standout defensive ends in this draft class who should be around when the Seahawks are on the clock, such as LSU's Arden Key, UTSA's Marcus Davenport, Ohio State's Sam Hubbard, or Wake's Duke Ejiofor.

For Seattle, acquiring Johnson gives them a bit of security if Paul Richardson departs via free agency.
