This is a strange situation. Another reporter mentioned that Bennett can play some DT--I suppose in passing situations. That may make it easier to allow B Allen to move on, even though Allen is more of a run stopper.

Bennett is signed through age 35!

The key to this might be that the Eagles can cut Benett next year after June 1 with only 1.7$mil in dead$ according to OTC. you have to change the drop down list to post Jn1 cut.

The dead $ for Curry is only $2mil for cut or trade after June 1. change the drop down list

Maybe Bennett is a better run stuffing DE than Curry. The Eagles might be confident in young DE, D. Barnett in passing situations. The Eagles then save a few mil$ I suppose.

I assume the Eagles will draft another WR for Special Teams.

5.6M cap hit for us this year.

32 years old.

Curry cut should pay for it, and has lesser Out year cap hit, but we need to save cap room. With the 5.5 M cap savings from Curry cut, it is a wash. We still have cap room maneuvers to do. Does Howie restructure a 32 year old DE deal? I don' t know.
