Considering Friday on the NFL Network defensive end brought Michael Bennett to the eagles having asked him to take a pay part, something he is not willing to do. In fact, Bennett made it clear that he wants a pay rise.

“You were always guarded when your name is occupied in the trading block or traded but you understand that people want to acquire your services. We are in a difficult situation as far as wage capital. I am not willing to take a salary part,” says Bennett. “I actually want a pay rise at this time. I just know by now, no matter what team I go to, I want to pay more than what I get paid right now. “

9 and is also under contract for 2020 at a $ 7 million base salary. He has no more guaranteed money in his contract. Bennett’s salary for 2017 is currently set at 21st Among defensive purposes.

“I do not know what happens to the eagles. Of course you always want to be with the team you played with, says Bennett. “But at the same time I know that it is a company and you want to be able to make money when you get the chance. I feel that if you are on the trading block it is part of the game. But I still know that I am one of the best players in NFL. You watch statistical quarterback hits, TFLs and how I approach the game. I love soccer. Whatever team I am on I will take the same attitude. “

Bennett had an excellent first season for the eagles 2018, a total of nine sacks and 68 total pressures. Bennett 68 prints were fifth in the NFL last season.

The Eagles ask Bennett to take a salary part, if it is true, is not surprising. As top staff Howie Roseman tinkers usually use the player’s contract every offseason to try to save the team money and open up the cap space. Bennett who does not want to take a pay cut is also not surprising, but he had a good season and is a very important part of the team.

The question is what happens next?

Trade Bennett would be a big blow to the eagles unless they could land another elite pass rusher to replace him. Taking back an unfortunate Bennett can also be a problem.

The unofficial start of the free agency in the NFL begins on Monday and it is likely what happens to Bennett will be decided either Monday or shortly thereafter.
