Seahawks trade Michael Bennett to Eagles as Sherman's future unclear

Seahawks Rumors: CB Richard Sherman Telling Seattle Teammates Goodbye

Seahawks Rumors: CB Richard Sherman Telling Seattle Teammates Goodbye

The Seattle Seahawks may be preparing to mark the end of their Legion of Boom era, as they traded away one member of their star defense on Wednesday, and reports indicate another could be on the way out next.

Reports of the Bennett trade came out shortly after reports that Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said goodbye to his teammates and that he will not be on the team.

The teams can't officially announce the trade until March 14, when the 2018 league year starts. The Eagles were working to restructure Curry's contract in an attempt to keep him, but the arrival of Bennett is likely to accelerate trade talks.

Bennett is set to count $6.65 million against the cap, according to Spotrac, compared to Curry's number of $11 million. Bennett joins Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham and Derek Barnett as terrific pass rushers along the Eagles' defensive line.

80 killed on Monday in Syria's Ghouta
By early Tuesday, government troops controlled 40 percent of the enclave, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The council is expected to meet today to discuss the air strikes and clashes in the Syrian enclave of Eastern Ghouta.

In 2017, Bennett had 8.5 sacks to Curry's three. Of course, there was no better fit for Bennett in his prime than Seattle, as a player and a unique personality, in a locker room full of them.

A small group of players, namely 49ers safety Eric Reid, criticized Jenkins after he made a decision to stop demonstrating during the national anthem midway through last season. Last season it would have been $15.831 million. "I mean, whatever happens, I've loved being a Seahawk", Bennett told reporters on January 1. Michael Bennett is a three-time Pro Bowler in the National Football League that is heading into his 10th season. Considering the Seahawks almost traded Lane to Houston past year, they clearly have little faith in him as a long-term piece.

Jeffery was re-signed in December, after putting pen to paper on a one-year deal on the first day of free agency. He was also part of a 2013 Seahawks team that won Super Bowl XLVIII. He ends his five-year stint with 40 sacks in 75 games with Seattle.
