Eagles defensive tackle Bennie Logan is visiting the Washington Redskins tonight and Saturday, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter.
This is the first time Logan has been connected to any team in any kind of report since NFL free agency began. It doesn’t seem like there’s a great market out there for him. Schefter notes Logan is evaluating one-year contracts from multiple teams.
Philadelphia hasn’t shown a ton of interest in retaining their 27-year-old starting defensive lineman. Even if the Eagles did want to bring Logan back, he might be out of their price range at this point given how tight Philadelphia is against the cap.
Howie Roseman was asked about Logan during a press conference on Friday.
“We’re hopeful,” said Roseman. “Bennie’s a good player. We’re in communication with his representatives, and we’ll see how all this shakes out here.”
By my judgment, Roseman’s answer seemed short and dismissive. I’d be surprised to see Logan back with the Eagles. If anything, it would have to be a one year deal.
Losing Logan will hurt the Eagles because they’ll need a new starting defensive tackle. Philadelphia has reportedly been showing Giants free agent defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, who is three years younger than Logan, a “lot of love” so maybe they want him instead.
It would be a bummer to see Logan end up with Washington. He’s a likeable player and no one should want to see him condemned to that awful, dysfunctional franchise.
