The deal sends Bennett and a seventh-round pick to the Eagles in exchange for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick.

They had a great run with the likes of Bennett and other fearsome players on one of the league's most formidable defenses.

Bennett, 32, recorded 8.5 sacks last season and has a total of 54 in his nine-year career. You just keep growing and keep playing the best you can. There's a reason why several teams expressed interest in acquiring him.

With the Seahawks' defensive core aging, ailing from injuries, and coming up on contract years, the Seahawks may be headed toward a tear-down.

Moving forward, coach Pete Carroll and new defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. face a tough task trying to figure out which player or committee of players will fill the void left by Bennett's departure.

Bennett appeared to confirm the news with a tweet. Bennett joins Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham and Derek Barnett as terrific pass rushers along the Eagles' defensive line.

Based on his past performance, Clark should be ready to take the reigns as Seattle's premier defensive lineman.

For Seattle, this move signals the start of a major roster rebuild, especially on the defensive side of the ball. After spending most of 2016 on the practice squad, he had five catches for 45 yards in 10 games past year.

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.

The team had not yet announced the deal as of 3:30 p.m.

Trading Bennett clears around $2.2 million in 2018 cap space for the Seahawks, though he'll carry about $5.2 million in dead money charges.

Are two of the Seahawks' biggest names and voices on their way out of Seattle?
