  • Horrible.

    Eagles are even more dominant now. Welp, we got softer on D. Our offense better be pats.

  • Best of luck, Bennett.

    For purely footballing reasons I'm not unhappy to trade him though, I have to say. Mature of the back-office to do this now rather than one year late.

    Too many penalties and not nearly consistently disruptive.

    Not sure about the WR though. Would much rather have got a round higher and/or kept P.Rich.

  • Wow what a day! The full rebuild has begun. I will miss Bennett as a player and once again Was big piece to our sb win. The contract extension was a mistake. Is Marcus Johnson any good or is he a camp body?

    I'm glad you're so excited about seeing 8.5 sacks and a top 5 shutdown corner get kicked to the curb.

    Never said I was excited. Horrible drafting and cap management is why this is going to be a big hit. Bennett's time was up here imo but our gm did nothing to fill these holes that are now left. Like I said...rebuild has begun.

  • Is that a 2018 5th, or next year? Anybody know or heard?

    Sorry to lose Mike, hope we have someone who can step up.

  • The Eagles were really high on Marcus Johnson but he just wasn't good enough to crack the active roster but I think the Eagles found him expendable because they have a similar guy, Shelton Gibson on the roster too.

    I think Bennett replaces Vinny Curry. Bennett carries a 5.5M cap number in 2018. Curry has a 11-12M in 2018. So they'll trade or maybe even cut Curry and replace him with Bennett at half the number.

    Sorry, but have you seen the Super Bowl Champs D-Line? Michael Bennett and Fletcher Cox on the inside Derek Barnett and Brandon Graham on the outside. Yikes.

    And all we got is pretty much an early sixth round pick. Granted MB hasn’t performed as well as of recent, still doesn’t change the fact he’s only 32 and can turn it around again.

    This isn't about team talent. This is about getting rid of those not all in or not able to let go of the past.

    It was time to part ways, yes, but it’s just going to feel weird not seeing a bunch of fan favorites out there in blue and green.

    Here’s to hoping for an incredible draft that will make this team better than ever. As long as we have Russell, we should be fine.

  • For Seattle to stay competitive moves like this need to happen. Yes I hate to see Mike leave and appreciate everything he's done for the team. But last year, as productive as he was, you could see him slowing down. As many have noted here how many "trip over his own shoes" incidents did he have in the backfield? Age hits us all eventually.

  • As usual, fans will act like the Hawks should have got a haul for a guy. Trades just don't bring much back these days. Sure it would have been nice to get a 4th or something, but this was probably the best offer they got. Fans do not know more than Pete and John. Bummer that it's to the Eagles, but oh well. Thx for the years Michael. It feels like it was time to move on from him. News flash, it doesn't matter one bit if we think the team could have got a better deal.

    How much do 10 offsides penalties, 2 neutral zone infractions and an encroachment take off? He single-handedly had 52% of the defense's LOS violations.

  • I said a 7th, 6th, and Bennett would net a 5th rounder.

    Almost nailed it. Should have known since we don't have a 6th.

  • Marcus Johnson is just subterfuge to make the trade look better. He was an undrafted free agent with five career receptions.

    I expect Sheldon Richardson to sign now. That's what this trade was really about, IMO.

    Let’s be honest. Is Sherman a Top 5 lockdown corner anymore? List the your Top 5 cornerbacks please.

    Could care less about Bennett leaving, but this makes no sense at all. Another PED infringement and he'll be suspended for at least 2 seasons (and its bound to happen). The team needs money and they dont need to be spending it on 31 year old headcases.

    In fairness, veteran players almost never bring in good trade hauls. Bennett is still a good player, but he was 33 and had off the field concerns. Remember when Anquan Boldin and a ridiculous playoffs en route to a SB, and then was traded for a 6th round pick the ensuing a couple months later?

    Frank Clark is a better player right now and much younger. He'll get his chance to be a full-time starter.

    He had an off year with a foot injury and was still better than average. The foot injury casts doubt on forward performance but he hardly looked 'done' and i defy you to provide an analysis where he is anything but average at worst.

    He was not productive in college either, which is why he went undrafted.
