It’s been a rough 24 hours for Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett. But it was what he did after the 20-14 loss to the New Orleans saints that is getting a ton of unwanted attention.
Video footage of the post-game walk back to the locker room shows Bennett getting in the face of a cameraman who had been following him.
As the footage shows, Bennett apparently yells at CoxSportsTV cameraman Derron Daquano, who had been filming him. Bennet gets really close to his face, drawing attention from another cameraperson.
The pair have what appears to be a slightly heated exchange before Bennett indicates that Daquano should go somewhere else and then continues to the locker room.
Ok, here is the video of #Eagles DT Michael Bennett walking off the field after #SaintsEagles playoff game confronting cameraman from CBS Philadelphia.

The Eagles lost in heartbreaking fashion as on their final drive, a Nick Foles pass bounced off the hands of wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey and into the hands of a Saints defender for an interception.
Several plays later, the Saints were able to kneel down and secure the win, ending the Eagles’ Super Bowl title defense.
To his credit, Bennett had a decent-enough game for the Eagles. He finished the game with four tackles, one tackle for loss, and two quarterback hits.
