Eagles trading DE Bennett to Pats

Patriots reportedly trade for Michael Bennett

"Whatever team I go to, I want to get paid more than what I'm getting paid right now", he added.

Last week, after Jason Witten announced he was coming out of retirement, Martellus Bennett took to Twitter to joke about returning the field.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett (77) gestures during the second quarter of a NFC Divisional playoff football game against the New Orleans Saints at Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Bennett played well against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX and his brother, Martellus, played with New England before.

In Bennett's only season in Philadelphia, he finished tied for eighth in the league in tackles for a loss (18), and ranked fourth with 30 quarterback hits, while recording nine sacks and two forced fumbles. During an appearance on NFL Network's Good Morning Football, Bennett said that he wants a pay raise for the 2019 season.

Michael Bennett could have a quick reunion with the Eagles, as they are set to host the Patriots next season.

DEVELOPING: Pats working on trade for DE Bennett

If that's something that the Patriots wish to continue doing, Bennett should fit the mold pretty easily, as he himself has been no slouch from an interior alignment.

This is a chess move by Belichick and the Patriots, who game the free agent.

Bennett isn't a long-term answer for the Patriots.

What the reported pickup of Bennett means for the future of Trey Flowers remains to be seen, but it's believed that the Patriots are going to let Flowers test the open market and then swing back around to see if they can match any offer thrown his way. The three-time Pro Bowler started the season playing backup before earning a starting job after Derek Barnett underwent season-ending shoulder surgery. Most teams aren't lining up to trade for a 33-year-old player who is unhappy with his contract. Flowers has become a leader in the locker room, though, and Bennett has been known as a distraction and problematic player at times.
