When defensive-end quarterback Michael Bennett left the Seattle Seahawk, they scored the best secondary for the season. He was traded to his new team, the Philadelphia Eagles, who critics see as a boost to the team’s defensive line.
Including some of the best rotation ranks such as Tim Jernigan, Fletcher Cox, Chris Long, Brandon Graham, and Derek Barnet, Bennett will be part of the legendary NFL players who are considered as pillars of the sports.
ESPN covered the news with the d-line player saying, “I think it can be one of the greatest. I think we can have one of the greatest defensive lines to ever play the game if we approach the game like every single way, just go out there and keep doing what they’re doing and just finding a way to just add and keep showing how many great players [we have].”
During his introductory press conference, Bennett also went on to describe Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive line like that of the Golden State Warriors. According to Bleacher Report, he says, “I think a great defensive line is about the rotation. It’s kind of like Golden State, you want to be able to have those guys that can come in and shoot and shoot and score every time.”
Bennett’s comparison may not be off the mark as the Eagles team already includes a roster of some of the best NFL players. He has issued a warning saying, “I know Eli Manning is probably watching this and thinking… yes, I’m coming. I know Dak [Prescott] is watching this like, “Yeah, he’s coming. And Alex Smith, he knows he can’t run from me. I told him in the Pro Bowl.”
The new Eagle’s d-line player has recorded the third most snaps and defensive lineman has done in NFL. The recent switch might be for his longevity because he has played more than any defensive lineman or this fresh start might be to help him with augmenting his competencies more. His new team hopes it would be for the latter.
