Eagles Trade Pro Bowl DE Michael Bennett To The Patriots

(Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports)

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.

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.
