Michael Bennett Voices Excitement To Signing With PatriotsChuck Cook - USA TODAY Sports

On Thursday, the New England Patriots trade with Philadelphia Eagles became official, and defensive end Michael Bennett became the second Bennett brother to play in Foxboro.

Speaking with Megan O’Brien of Patriots.com, Bennett discussed his feelings about his new team.

“I used to hate the Patriots. I’d hate it because they’d win so much. I’d hate it because Tom Brady’s hair was long. I’d hate it that [Bill] Belichick would wear sweaters. But now that I’m here, I love you. I love Tom Brady’s hair.”

“I love being a Patriot because, obviously, it’s all about winning. I think everything about the organization is about team-first. It’s just about doing what you need to do to get to where we want to go as a group. I think I love that.”

The Patriots traded the Eagles a 2020 fifth round pick for Bennett and a 2020 seventh rounder.

Bennett played in all 16 regular season games for Philadelphia in 2018, registering nine sacks, 34 tackles and two forced fumbles.

In two playoff games, Bennett had seven tackles and one sack.

On Thursday, Bennett shared his excitement for a new start in New England over Twitter and Instagram.

Michael’s brother Martellus, who won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2016, shared a congratulatory message on his Instagram page.
