Dallas Cowboys Acquire Michael Bennett From Patriots

The Dallas Cowboys have added to their defensive line in hopes of contending this season. They have completed a trade for Michael Bennett, sending a conditional seventh-round pick to the Patriots in return. ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report the news.

The seventh-round pick is conditional and can become a sixth-round pick based on Bennett’s play. There was friction between Bennett and his position coach, Bret Bielema, which caused him to be suspended for one game. He also wasn’t playing a lot of snaps for the team.

Bennett, 36, will likely fill a role that Tyrone Crawford had been fulfilling for the team. Crawford played both defensive end and defensive tackle for the team, which will likely how Bennett will be used. Crawford is out for the season after needing hip surgery.

The veteran defensive lineman won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks and is a three-time Pro Bowler. Bennett has also played for the Buccaneers and the Eagles in his career. He has 65.5 sacks in his career. This season he has 2.5 sacks for the Patriots.
