Yeah, things are slow in Philly sports right now, but not as slow as Michael Bennett’s legal proceedings.
A small nugget today from the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero:
#Eagles DL Michael Bennett's attorney, Rusty Hardin, tells me his arraignment in Texas has been rescheduled again, for Aug. 7. Had been set for tomorrow. They're still going through discovery process, trying to get any videotape that shows Bennett entering field.

This is the third time the hearing has been delayed. The indictment came down in March and stems from Super Bowl 51, so the whole thing is more than a year old at this point.
Bennett is accused of injuring an elderly paraplegic woman who was controlling access to the field during the game. Prosecution says the defensive lineman tried to push his way onto the field while Bennett’s attorney says the incident never even took place.
