The Patriots elected not to franchise tag their top pass rusher Trey Flowers this offseason, leaving a need on the defensive line.
They have filed that with Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett.
Patriots and Eagles are finalizing a deal to send Michael Bennett to New England, per source.

The Eagles will trade the veteran for draft pick compensation to be announced later.
Michael’s brother, Martellus won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2016.
