Logan Lands with Chiefs

PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) – On the day the Eagles brought back, a familiar face they also lost one as defensive tackle Bennie Logan agreed to a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Like a lot of players, Logan didn’t find the market he was looking for once he hit free agency and chose to sign a prove-it deal and revisit things again next year. Philadelphia was hopeful of re-signing Logan once the price tag lowered but obviously couldn’t get anything done.

“We’re hopeful,” Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said last week when asked about re-signing Logan. “Bennie is a good player, and we’re in communication with his representatives, and we’ll just see how all this shakes out here.”

Before signing with Andy Reid and the Chiefs, Logan had visited the Washington Redskins.

The team’s third-round pick out of LSU in 2013, Logan quickly developed into a starter at nose tackle in Bill Davis’ 3-4 and made the transition to Jim Schwartz’s 4-3 in solid, if unspectacular fashion.

The Eagles have been working on an extension for Beau Allen, who is expected to take over for Logan in the starting lineup.
