Report: Eagles trade Michael Bennett to Patriots

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia Eagles have traded defensive end Michael Bennett and a seventh round draft pick to the New England Patriots in exchange for a fifth round draft pick.

Bennett, who will make $7.2 million in 2019, was believed to be on the trading block after refusing to take a paycut from the Eagles.

With fellow defensive ends Brandon Graham resigned and Derek Barnett set to return from injury, Bennett became the odd man out in Philadelphia.
