Summary

Despite turning 34 years old last year, Bennett remains an effective pass rusher with 17.5 sacks combined over the last two seasons and it's likely the Patriots will give him plenty of playing time as their primary replacement for Trey Flowers. Given his age and underwhelming tackle numbers, along with the fact the Patriots love to rotate their defensive linemen heavily, he's likely no better than a DE3. (May 30)
