Is Michael Bennett unhappy with his role on the Eagles?

Is Michael Bennett unhappy with his role on the Eagles?

A closer look. NBC color commentator Cris Collinsworth made a curious comment during the Philadelphia Eagles’ Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons. “Word is Michael Bennett is none too happy with being a backup,” Collinsworth said during the broadcast, via PhillyVoice. “Eight and a half sacks. He brings over three straight Pro Bowls. You can understand.” BGN alumnus Jimmy Kempski put together a post debunking Collinsworth’s claim. In addition to pointing out that Bennett played the third most snaps (and only one fewer snap than Brandon Graham) of any Eagles defensive lineman...

The Linc - Michael Bennett named one of the best veteran bargains in the NFL

The Linc - Michael Bennett named one of the best veteran bargains in the NFL

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 9/14/18 Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... The price is right: Best veteran contract for all 32 NFL teams - ESPN In$iderPhiladelphia Eagles: DE Michael Bennett. The deal: Three years, $29.5 million with $14.5 million in guarantees. The tricky math behind why this is such a good deal for the Eagles is simple: They’re not paying any of the signing bonuses, because they acquired Bennett via trade. So for the Eagles, they essentially have Bennett on a three-year, $20.6 million deal with little in the way of guaranteed money. Even at age...

The Seahawks pass rush was the worst in the NFL in Week 1

The Seahawks pass rush was the worst in the NFL in Week 1

With Michael Bennett traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, Sheldon Richardson signing with the Minnesota Vikings, and Cliff Avril essentially not healthy enough to play anymore, there were more than legitimate concerns about how the Seattle Seahawks pass rush would operate in the 2018 NFL regular season. It’s early days, mind you, but the opening game was not encouraging in the slightest. Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum was sacked only one time out of 40 dropbacks, and largely had all day to throw and exploit the coverage downfield. According to NFL Matchup on ESPN, no team had a worse...

Jaguars release Michael Bennett

Jaguars release Michael Bennett

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released defensive lineman Michael Bennett, the team announced on Tuesday afternoon. The move was expected, coming to free up room on the 53-man roster for Dante Fowler Jr., who was not on the active roster Week 1 while serving a league suspension. Most thought the cut would come between one of the fringe defensive lineman or wide receiver Rashad Greene, which Bennett getting a meeting with the Turk. Ironically, Bennett was drafted in the sixth round of the same draft class as Fowler and has had a rough start to his NFL career. He played 13 games his rookie...

Eagles WR Mack Hollins won’t play versus Atlanta, DE Michael Bennett out Tuesday

Eagles WR Mack Hollins won’t play versus Atlanta, DE Michael Bennett out Tuesday

The Eagles are a bit slim at receiver. The Eagles are going to be down another one of their better receiving targets. Our colleagues over at Bleeding Green Nation report that Philadelphia WR Mack Hollins won’t suit up Thursday against Atlanta, leaving them to Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace as their main targets at receiver. It’s also said DE Michael Bennett did not practice Tuesday with a knee ailment, hinting he could be held out, too, and at the most won’t be one-hundred percent. The team later said the absence wasn’t related to an injury, however, so his status is very much up...

PLUS: One defensive lineman didn’t practice. The Philadelphia Eagles released their second official injury report on Tuesday in advance of their Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Head coach Doug Pederson had the following to say about Jeffery on Tuesday morning: “Right now, I’m optimistic, but it’s week-to-week. Again, it’s one of those situations where we get...
