The Seattle Seahawks are apparently looking to change the complexion of their defense, with reports surfacing that they're putting some big names on the trade block.
As you can imagine, there's expected to be a good amount of interest in all three of these Pro Bowlers, and the latest reports suggest an NFC powerhouse is looking to acquire Bennett via trade.
Source tells me the Falcons are one of multiple teams discussing a Michael Bennett trade with the Seahawks. Nothing imminent but will be interesting to see how it all unfolds. https://t.co/IcvdmTZSlE— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) March 5, 2018
The Falcons had a pretty good defense this past season, but adding Michael Bennett to that defensive line would drastically improve their pass rush, especially when Vic Beasley returns and if they can re-sign Adrian Clayborn.
Atlanta is just a few pieces away from getting back to the Super Bowl and acquiring a talent like Bennett would go a long way in the NFC South, which has quickly emerged as arguably the best division in football, with the Panthers and Saints figuring to contend for a Super Bowl over the next few years.
Keep an eye on this storyline as it could shift the balance of power in the NFC.
