The reigning Super Bowl champion Eagles have just acquired Michael Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks, it was reported Wednesday afternoon. 

The Eagles were listed at 8/1 odds for winning the 2019 Super Bowl prior to the blockbuster trade.

The Seahawks traded Bennett and a seventh-round pick to the Eagles for a fifth-round pick and wide receiver Marcus Johnson.

The Eagles' new third-down pass rush will have Bennett and Fletcher Cox on the inside, with Derek Barnett and Brandon Graham on the outside..

The addition of Bennett will allow the Eagles to explore a potential trade of defensive end Vinny Curry, who carries a cap hit of $11 million in 2018.

Bennett was second on the Seahawks with 8.5 sacks in 2017 and again led the team's defensive linemen in playing time by a wide margin.

Bennett entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Seahawks in 2009 but spent the majority of his first four seasons with Tampa Bay. He returned to Seattle as a free agent in 2013 and produced 39 sacks over his five seasons with the team. He was named to the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons and was a member of Seattle's Super Bowl XLVIII championship team.
