In week 2 against the Miami Dolphins, Bennett recorded his first sack of the season in the 43-0 win. On October 15, Bennett was suspended by the Patriots for one game — a Monday Night Football matchup against the New York Jets — for conduct detrimental to the team. Bennett said his suspension was the result of a "philosophical disagreement" with his position coach, and apologized for his conduct. He was reinstated from suspension on October 22, but his return was short-lived as he was traded just days later.
On October 24, 2019, Bennett was traded to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a 2021 seventh-round selection that later became a sixth-round selection. He was acquired to offset the loss of defensive end Tyrone Crawford, who was placed on the injured reserve list on October 15. He was a backup defensive end, registering 18 tackles (8 for loss), 4 sacks, and 24 quarterback pressures in 9 games. Although he had problems with offside penalties, he also was considered one of the team's leaders. He was not re-signed after the season.
On January 22, 2018, Bennett earned his third straight invite to the Pro Bowl after Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen could not attend due to injury.
On March 7, 2018, the Seahawks agreed to a trade that would send Bennett and a seventh round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth round draft pick. The deal became official on March 14, 2018, at the start of the new NFL league year. He played in all 16 games with 10 starts, recording 34 tackles, nine sacks, and two forced fumbles.
On March 23, 2018, a warrant was issued for Bennett's arrest by police in Harris County, Texas for allegedly injuring an elderly paraplegic worker at Super Bowl LI, held 13 months previously. On March 26 Bennett returned to the U.S. from outside the country (where he was when his arrest warrant was issued) and surrendered to police custody. He posted a $10,000 bail bond and was set free. Bennett pleaded not guilty in April. The court date was postponed six times: in April, May, June, August, September, October, and March 2019. On April 3, 2019, criminal charges against Bennett were dropped due to insufficient evidence.
On September 17, 2017, after a sack of white 49ers QB Brian Hoyer, Bennett raised a Black Panther fist in the air as part of his celebration. On December 10, 2017, in a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Bennett struck the knees of Jaguars center Brandon Linder on a kneel down. This led to an altercation between the two teams, and that resulted in teammates Sheldon Richardson and Quinton Jefferson being ejected from the contest.
Bennett declined a trip to Israel with other NFL players in 2017 citing his support for the Palestinian cause.
In August 2017, Bennett was involved in an incident outside a Las Vegas nightclub with two police officers. Bennett claimed that the officers used excessive force on him and stated the police "threatened to blow my head off." The police have denied his accusations, and claim the video evidence does not corroborate Bennett's story. Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he found no evidence that three officers who encountered Bennett racially profiled him or used excessive force against him. The incident remains under investigation.
On December 30, 2016, Bennett signed a three-year $31.5 million contract extension with the Seahawks, with one year still on his previous contract, now keeping Bennett signed through the 2020 season.

Bennett was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Seattle Seahawks on April 27, 2009. An NFL Draft analyst noted that Bennett was not drafted probably due to his inconsistent performance in college. The team initially believed he could serve at left defensive end. After working with coaches during training camp, he was moved to the inside as a pass-rushing tackle. During the preseason, he compiled nine tackles, two sacks, five QB hurries, a tipped pass and a fumble recovery. He made the final roster by the end of the preseason.
Bennett was waived by the Seahawks on October 10, 2009 in order to make room for offensive tackle Kyle Williams, who was signed off of the practice squad.
Bennett was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 12, 2009. Tampa Bay switched him back to defensive tackle, and he became a key part of the defense filling in for the injured Gerald McCoy.
