A warrant was issued for Michael Bennett’s arrest, but the Eagles defensive end has been out of the country.
His attorney, Rusty Hardin, told USA Today that Bennett plans to surrender Monday.

Barkley is a far superior pass-catcher. Plus, there are absolutely no character issues or concerns with Barkley.
