The Seattle Seahawks may be preparing to mark the end of their Legion of Boom era, as they traded away one member of their star defense on Wednesday, and reports indicate another could be on the way out next.

The Eagles were working to restructure Curry's contract in an attempt to keep him, but the arrival of Bennett is likely to accelerate trade talks.

Knowing that Seattle was looking to move Bennett, Howie Roseman was able to acquire the All-Pro defensive end and a seventh-round pick in exchange for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick.

Richard Sherman reportedly told his teammates goodbye this week, although nothing has been made official.

Eagles defensive end Chris Long and wide receiver Torrey Smith have also been among the most socially active players in the league.

This is expected to bolster the team's pass rush and lower its salary cap figure for 2018 if Vinny Curry is traded or released, which was widely regarded to be possible even before the trade.

The Patriots now employ Bennett's brother, tight end Martellus Bennett, who is set to earn a $2 million roster bonus next Wednesday and could be released. Assuming Curry's out of the picture, Bennett or 2017 first-round draft pick Derek Barnett will probably start opposite Graham.

Bennett played through a torn plantar-fascia in his foot and a swollen knee, on top of a grotesquely bent toe that's bothered him for years.
