Does Michael Bennett trade push Trey Flowers out of New England?

Bennett tallied 34 tackles (15 for a loss) 30 QB hits and 9 sacks. The 31-year-old, who turns 32 on March 10, actually played a key role in the Patriots' Super Bowl LI victory over the Falcons. According to a report from Jeff McClane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Bennett is on his way out of the City of Brotherly Love. And when he officially becomes a Patriot, Bennett's new team will be on the hook for a cap hit of just $7.2 million as part of the three-year, $29.5 million contract extension he signed with the Seahawks in 2016. Bennett had already established himself as one of the league's best multi-gap pass-rushers, but this was above and beyond.

Earlier Friday, Bennett appeared on NFL Network, knowing his time with the Eagles would soon be over. Nope. New England only gave up a 5th round pick in the 2020 draft for Bennett.

Bennett earned a raise and Philadelphia should have rewarded him. "Whatever team I go to, I want to get paid more than I do now".

The problem, of course, is that Schiano is New England's new defensive coordinator.

This offseason has been surrounded with the uncertainty of whether or not Flowers will return to New England after playing phenomenal football for three seasons. That's the kind of player the Patriots target, someone who will embrace their way in the name of getting a ring.

The 6-foot-2, 265-pound Flowers has proven to be a versatile chess piece along the line of scrimmage in the Patriots' multiple scheme, aligning everywhere from outside the tackle to over the center.

Naturally, people were quick to point to the Bennett trade and say that this spells the end of Trey Flowers The Patriot.
