Eagles tight end Zach Ertz also appeared excited about Bennett's arrival.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Wednesday that Bennett will be traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, along with a seventh-round pick, for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick.

Bennett, 32, has been rumored to be on the trading block all offseason. "There are so many great players on this team and it's a great organization". It also removes a key defender in Seattle's two most recent Super Bowl teams and a clubhouse standout.

Bennett will count $6.7 million against the cap this season.

Bennett himself started the rumors that the 2017 season might be his last in Seattle when he speculated several times of having an uncertain future.

Jeffery was re-signed in December, after putting pen to paper on a one-year deal on the first day of free agency. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed him off waivers.

Bennett had 8 ½ sacks last season and 54 in his nine-year career.

That news broke about an hour after Seahawks teammates began using their social-media account to react to what they inferred was three-time All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman saying goodbye.

The Eagles' defense was fourth in points allowed per game (18.4).

However, Wednesday's trade underscored the fact that Roseman is not going to shy way from adding potentially elite football players when given the chance if the price is a middle round draft choice.

Chris Long lined up on the opposite side of Barnett and Fletcher Cox remained at defensive tackle in the package.

This has put a few other teams in motion as they look to get involved in the trade market, with the Eagles now ramping up their efforts to trade veteran defensive end Vinny Curry as well as the Los Angeles Rams agreeing to trade linebacker Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants.
