NFL insiders: Seahawk Michael Bennett traded to the Eagles
The news came down amid reports that Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman could also be facing the end of his Seattle days.
However, the trade might mean Philadelphia could explore trade options for defensive end Vinny Curry. He was expected to earn $8.4 million in 2018. That will likely change soon, as the Eagles may be tasked with giving him a new deal.
The Seahawks, tight against the salary cap already still one week from free agency starting, can save $2.2 million against this year's cap by trading or releasing Bennett. This move, depending on what the Eagles do with Curry, could help.
But the where-there's-smoke-there's-fire principle began to apply as Wednesday continued.
The Eagles, per overthecap.com, are now over the projected salary cap by more than $7 million.
Bennett has three years left on his four-year extension worth $39m signed in December 2016. Other teams were the Browns, Buccaneers and Falcons. He carries a cap number of $10.6 million, not excessive given his resume, but he's coming off an ACL surgery that cost him the final nine games and the postseason.
Turkish women sentenced to death in Iraq for joining IS
Thousands of foreigners fought in Syria and Iraq on the side of an "Islamic state" at least from 2014, reminds Reuters . Sixteen Turkish women were found guilty of terrorism and sentenced to death by an Iraqi court on Sunday, CNN reports.
The 11-year veteran is scheduled to make $4 million in 2018.
Two different reports have said Burton will have significant interest on the open market. Even more exciting, Philadelphia really didn't have to give up that much to acquire Bennett, and despite how much of a headache he's appeared to be at times over the previous year or so, this move was well worth the risk for Doug Pederson's squad. Curry, the Eagles' second-round draft pick in 2012, had only three sacks this season and 22 for his career. But considering how good of a player Bennett still is, the lack of depth on the roster, and the minimal return in value from the Eagles, there's a chance this move could backfire.
