  • This makes little sense in terms of strictly salary and on field production.

    Perhaps they really like Marcus Johnson but it's more likely that the locker room element was a deal breaker for them and they had decided to move on from Bennett this off-season at any cost. I suspect it's less to do with the national anthem stuff and more to do with the penalties, his attitude towards coaching about them, and the example that sets for the rookies.

    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?


    Don't sugar coat it. MB is still 32 and Hawks got worked yet again. It's outright cringeworthy how bad they have been in trades.

    I can’t tell if this is sarcasm..... trading a aging asset that is battling injury is good GMing. I dunno if you watched Bennett last year but that man looks done


    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.


    K? and John Schneider should be fired for trading a aging asset that is battling injury? Regardless if he was average or not you can’t keep everyone and as much as I loved Michael he is on the wrong side of 30 and eventually you need to cut ties to pay younger players

    Everyone wanted to be the Patriots. They forgot that the Patriots don't get first rounders for everyone they offload.

    I'm not too upset about this move given Bennett's age. But we're not going to get better without him unless the team knows something about Malik that I don't.
    GO HAWKS!!!

    It's not what he did.. but what would be expected of him in the future.

    Took a hit here, but you have to figure it's better than waiting a year later and getting even less for an aged, then ineffective Dlineman

    A better take is that Bennett didn't have much trade value in the first place. Do you think they gave other teams a chance to offer a better pick?

  • Every time I wonder how many terrible moves this team can make outside of the draft, they surprise me again.

    I find it funny that for a guy that is supposedly going to be easy to replace, a team with one of the best DLs in football, that was already so good it won the SB, wants him.

    But apparently he isn't a big loss for us.


    Yeah right.

    I kinda wish Green Bay would have 'stolen' JS from us. At least I would stop dreading the dumbass moves we make in the offseason.

    I mean, the 5th round pick that the Eagles traded today for Bennett was traded from Seattle to Philly in the Matt Tobin deal so I think we can say who won that one (Tobin).

    Eagles basically got Michael Bennett and a 7th for Matt Tobin and Marcus Johnson.

  • True.

    We still are waiting on that that annual bad FA signing for high dollars that happens every year for a player you would trade at the end of the year for a half eaten sandwich - just to get rid of him.

    I am on pins and needles as to who our next Cary Williams, Lacey or Joekel is going to be. I have no idea who it is, but it is coming.

    Meanwhile we lost a productive pass rusher that made our other guys productive because they had to concentrate on him.

    No it isn't the worst. But it isn't good news.

  • I just wonder who the Eagles have on their roster to fill in for half the plays that Bennett should not be on the field for. If they play Green Bay, they will need a speed cart to get Bennet off the field sooner as AR will take it to him a lot.

  • I like Bennett and what he has done on the field. Not a big fan of a lot of trades the Seahawks have done, and not sure this was a good one. If the value in trade wasn't there for Bennett, makes me curious why not just get another year out of him. Seems like they just wanted to part ways with him and were willing take whatever deal they could get.

    Marcus Johnson. Not a whole lot of info on the guy but sure why not. Sweeten the deal a little I guess. Worse case scenario he is camp fodder, best case he joins the team with our other speedy receivers and gives us some depth.

    Hell with it! Whatever Seahawks! Burn this sucker down and do what you got to do. Whatever happens, I am excited about next year with all the new pieces.

    I'm not sugarcoating anything. Anyone who thinks that we were getting anything of value for Bennett was delusional. Bennett didn't have a lot of value to begin with, and his value was hurt even more because of his off the field antics.

    I think JS has had some terrible trades but this one I don't think fits that category. I am far from a JS apologist.

    Eagles have Fletcher Cox and Timmy Jernigan as well as Elijah Qualls (UW!) who will see more reps this year. I think Bennett is used as a 3rd downs situational guy.

    Eagles will still have Brandon Graham/Derek Barnett/Chris Long on the EDGE.

  • Certainly will help the Eagles compete for the next year or two, he played well through injuries. Definitely more of a 2019 cap help move since he wasn't doing much against 2018. Maybe this was a chip to help get Sheldon resigned for less this year but boost his income over the next couple seasons when MB's came into play?

    Wonder if this means they're happy with Malik's recovery and hope Jordan can step up. Regardless, it's clear they're getting younger on D.

  • The great Bill Walsh once said: "better to trade an aging star a season or two too early then a season or two too late." Pete and Bill were close.

    No doubt Bennett may still have some game in him, but he will be on that downhill slope. We didn't get much, but we did get a draft pick and cap relief.

    Good job Pete!

    Cable was involved with that one and that's the only time Cable has been involved in a Hawks Eagles trade. Cable loooved Tobin...moron.

    I wasn't standing up for the fire portion just the diminishment of Bennet's value. His salary and age and foot are enough reasons to justify his trade without revisionist history on his 2017 season.

    Amen!!! This team is need of what made us great in the 1st place, young hungry talent w/ chips on their shoulders! We were not set up to make a SB run next year anyhow. So get our new guys in asap so they can learn our system, and get adjusted to the NFL game.

    I disagree. We have to pay MB 5 million of his 7 this year. Basically keeping him on the roster for just this year would have cost us a additional 2mil. 8.5sacks and the Pro Bowl when he played half the year with a bad toe. A injury many said would sideline most players. Hawks D-Line take a huge hit to save 2mil. Meanwhile Philly unloads a 5th and a practice squad WR for a 2mil dollar pro bowler. This front office has been downright terrible the last few years.

    I think you're misconstruing how the cap and the salary works. Yes, we still have to eat his signing bonus, but if we keep him, we pay his full salary and still (over time) eat the signing bonus, so this frees up future cap space as well as current.

    I still think Bennett was worth keeping, but perhaps his foot is more of an issue than we know. One thing I do believe is we will have a good DL with our without him, so it was a position of strength and depth.

    I was just coming to post this exactly. This was pretty much right what they should have gotten back for Bennett with Quinn going for a 4th. I was actually expecting a 6th. Good trade overall on a guy they were ready to move on from as evident by Bennett's own words at the end of the year. He already knew he was gone, and so did other teams. Good value.

    The bad news is he had to give up a 7th round pick and Michael Bennett to get it back.

  • You failed to mention probably healthier.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

  • I'll miss the production, but not the drama. If it means the difference between keeping Sheldon Richardson and not, then I am happy with this call. If we lose Richardson as well, :cussing:

  • All in all I don't really like this trade but at present I don't know the rest of the plan.

    Don't sugar coat it. MB is still 32 and Hawks got worked yet again. It's outright cringeworthy how bad they have been in trades.

    "Eagles traded a 7 and Matt Tobin to Seattle for a 5. Seattle than traded a 7 and Michael Bennett for a 5 and Marcus Johnson.

    The Eagles basically traded Matt Tobin and Marcus Johnson for Michael Bennett, lol."

    I'm not sugarcoating anything. Anyone who thinks that we were getting anything of value for Bennett was delusional. Bennett didn't have a lot of value to begin with, and his value was hurt even more because of his off the field antics.

    I think JS has had some terrible trades but this one I don't think fits that category. I am far from a JS apologist.


    I disagree. We have to pay MB 5 million of his 7 this year. Basically keeping him on the roster for just this year would have cost us a additional 2mil. 8.5sacks and the Pro Bowl when he played half the year with a bad toe. A injury many said would sideline most players. Hawks D-Line take a huge hit to save 2mil. Meanwhile Philly unloads a 5th and a practice squad WR for a 2mil dollar pro bowler. This front office has been downright terrible the last few years.


    I think you're misconstruing how the cap and the salary works. Yes, we still have to eat his signing bonus, but if we keep him, we pay his full salary and still (over time) eat the signing bonus, so this frees up future cap space as well as current.

    I still think Bennett was worth keeping, but perhaps his foot is more of an issue than we know. One thing I do believe is we will have a good DL with our without him, so it was a position of strength and depth.


    I hope not, most trades have health clauses, and if that's the case it would be useless to propose a trade that will get killed when he doesn't pass the physical.

    HAHAHAHA

    Because there's never been a player that had a better NFL career than College... Right?

    There's many factors that could play into a players production at any given level. Fact is though that he's more athletic than the guy they need to replace. He certainly has a chance to stick. Plus it's not like PRich is some super star...

    He was able to play on it, so I don't think that it will be an issue, but it definitely (IMO) was a big reason for his lowered production last season and if he continues to have the pain, he may be able to play through it but wouldn't necessarily be the same player. Of course even at the lesser status, he still has very good production, so I wouldn't reject the trade on that basis if I were the Eagles.

    Yeah, after that happened I can not agree with people who think we got bad value for Bennett.

    My first thought when hearing they were looking to trade him was I wonder how much of this had to due with the offside issues, I would say it is mostly an age thing, but wouldn't be shocked to learn the flags are a part of this.

    Five catches in his career (on eight total targets with a lost fumble). Zero special teams tackles. Undrafted. Injured for a few games as a senior at Texas. Even when healthy, he could not even start in college for a Texas team that was thin at receiver. Injured again in training camp as an undrafted rookie. Had played in 10 total games.

    If he "sticks," it's because we have nothing better behind Baldwin and Lockett.

    This is the equivalent of the Seahawks attaching Cyril Grayson to a trade.

    He "Stuck" in Philly on a team with one of the deeper WR corps in the league. They were going to have to spend a later round pick to bring in someone and now they don't have to. If they like his upside more than a flier in the 2018 NFL draft I trust their judgment.
