Patriots defensive end Trey Flowers, who ended his 2018 season with 11 sacks, 16 hits, and 51 hurries. A day later, he was claimed by the Patriots, the team with which he won Super Bowl LI during the 2016 season. According to a report from Jeff McClane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Bennett is on his way out of the City of Brotherly Love.
Bennett, who will make $7.2 million in 2019, was believed to be on the trading block after refusing to take a paycut from the Eagles.
Last season was another great year for Bennett. even at age 33 he doesn't appear to be slowing down. After being released by New England, the veteran tight end chose to retire in March 2018. Well, after watching Bennett make an impact on defense by finishing with nine sacks, it's safe to say this was a great addition for Philadelphia, and expectations would be high once again heading into 2019. "I actually want a pay raise at this point, and so whatever happens just to know that whatever team I go to I want to get paid more than I get paid right now".

His brother, Martellus, retired from the NFL last March after 10 seasons in the league, the most recent of which were spent with the Patriots. The Buccaneers, Seahawks and Eagles have primarily been 4-3 units, and seldom altered their looks - or what techniques they asked their linemen to execute - as frequently as New England does.
Bennett's arrival shouldn't automatically close the door on Flowers' return - it's more likely to affect Adrian Clayborn's return for a second season - as it's a trade the Patriots would have made regardless of Flowers' free-agent status. The likelihood of Flowers remaining a Patriot just slimmed down tremendously.
