Eagles' Michael Bennett: Reports for mandatory minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett reported for the Eagles' mandatory minicamp Monday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

The Eagles don't take the field until Tuesday, but Bennett's presence at the facility is significant nonetheless since the defensive end didn't attend voluntary OTAs this spring. While it's possible his legal situation could prevent him from taking the field in Week 1, Bennett presumably will still be entering training camp with the first-string defense.

Eagles' Michael Bennett: Missing from OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett didn't report to first day of OTAs on Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

This isn't related to the felony charge Bennett is facing in Harris County, Texas, Tim McManus reports, and head coach Doug Pederson isn't worried about his absence. Bennett has racked up 23.5 sacks during his last three seasons with the Seahawks, and he will help bolster an already strong defensive corps in Philly.

Eagles' Michael Bennett: Indicted on felony charge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A Harris County, TX grand jury indicted Bennett on Friday for a felony charge of injury to the elderly, Jerome Solomon of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Bennett allegedly hurt a 66-year-old paraplegic while pushing his way onto the field at the conclusion of Super Bowl LI when the Patriots defeated the Falcons. His new team, the Eagles, released a statement acknowledging they're aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering information, but they don't have any further comment at the time. Bennett was traded from the Seahawks to the Eagles at the start of the league year in mid-March.

Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Dealt to Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks have agreed to trade Bennett and a seventh-round pick to the Eagles for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Seattle's fearsome defense of recent seasons is embarking on a sea change in its ranks. Bennett will be the first to depart -- once the new league year starts March 14 -- joining the reigning Super Bowl champs. Owed $18 million over the next three seasons, he'll join a D-line rotation that includes Fletcher Cox, Vinny Curry, Brandon Graham, Timmy Jernigan, Chris Long and Derek Barnett. During his five seasons with the Seahawks, Bennett compiled at least seven sacks on four occasions.

Seahawks' Michael Bennett: Doesn't expect to play for Seattle in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bennett said Sunday that he "probably won't be [with Seattle] next year" following the Seahawks' 26-24 loss to the Cardinals in the season finale, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

After inking a three-year, $29.5 million contract extension with the Seahawks last December, Bennett more or less met expectations in the first season of the new deal, as he suited up for all 16 games in 2017 and compiled 40 stops (25 solo) and 8.5 sacks. The 32-year-old defensive end played through a torn plantar fascia in his foot and a swollen knee during the season, which may have prevented him from mounting even better numbers. Despite the fact he's still productive in the latter half of his career, Bennett's high salary number could make it difficult for the Seahawks to retain him with cap flexibility a priority for the team.
