NE trades DE Michael Bennett to DAL for a conditional 6th/7th

Recommended Posts

I’m not even sure what he has in the tank. He didn’t play a ton here. Seems like it was super easy to phase him out with Collins/KVN/Wino providing a good edge rush.  His value boiled down to a pure inside rusher that also happened to cause some head aches and had a bit of money on his contract when the team is strapped. 

I’d have rather kept him, though. You can never have too much depth and it’s possible things could’ve gelled later in the season.

Either New England wanted him out of the AFC or Baltimore is extremely stupid for not calling for that price, considering the state of our interior pass rush.

He's at a stage in his career where I don't think he can play 50+ snaps.  And he sells out now a TON to get to the QB.  So he's far better in a rotation.

But Crawford is definitely a guy he can pair with - and upgrade the DAL pass rush.  Frankly, they could use this.

But let's make no mistake - BB also did this to make sure he didn't sign with an AFC contender.   It's also telling he chose DAL.  He made a calculated decision here (didn't want him in NO, SF, GB/MIN, etc.).

No way the Packers would be looking at him. I think they probably had enough of the bennets!

Nice pick up as long as he's on board with Still being a rotational DE/DT playing 20 or so snaps. Was honestly hoping given all of our injuries Howie was interested as well. Curious whether his attitude as a Eagle nip that idea from even occuring in the bud?

The Bennett bros are enormous d-bags. I was shocked that the Pats signed him in the first place, but am not surprised that he wore out his welcome so soon.

He's still a good player. The problem in New England was that he couldn't 2-gap.

Forgot about Martellus. Good call.  I excluded SEA from the trade list for the same reason lol.

Can he play some inside? 

Yes. And in Marinelli's DL scheme, there are 2 traditional edges, a NT, and then the 2nd DT is like a DT/DE hybrid. He'll be get some snaps now that Tyrone Crawford is out and Maliek Collins keeps getting penalized.

Can he play DT or Safety? Shoot, can he GM or Head Coach?

 

He can play DT, yeah. But yes, Cowboys also need an upgrade at safety. Woods and Heath are solid in a rotation, but a real starter would be nice.

Why? Sounds exactly like the players they sign.

Oh so when he was on the patriots he was a choir boy. Byproduct audience of lazy journalism here.
