The Eagles will receive Bennett and a seventh-round pick in the deal, in exchange for a fifth-round pick and little-used wide receiver Marcus Johnson (only five catches in two NFL seasons, spent mostly on the practice squad).
Bennett had 8.5 sacks in 2017, more than anyone on the Eagles except Brandon Graham's 9.5. He added 39.5 hurries -- Chris Long led the Eagles with 35.0. However, Bennett turns 33 in November, has dealt with nagging injuries in the past, and
is guaranteed $13.5 million in 2019 and 2020 a projected combined cap hit of nearly $20 million in 2019 and 2020.
