It's been quite a week up in New England. After trading for Mohamed Sanu and placing Josh Gordon on IR, the Patriots have now traded offseason acquisition Michael Bennett to the Dallas Cowboys for a conditional seventh-round pick.

Bennett has played sparingly for New England after getting sent there from Philadelphia over the offseason. While he's a talented player, he didn't fit into Bill Belichick's scheme with this new elite defense. He expressed his displeasure with his role last week, and was suspended without pay for a week as a result.

Bennett will join a Cowboys defensive line that features Robert Quinn and DeMarcus Lawrence, and should make an immediate impact.
