Arrowheadlines: What they're saying about the new Kansas City Chiefs player

New, comments

Bennie Logan, Chiefs reportedly agree to terms | Bleeding Green Nation

It’s a bummer to see Logan won’t be back with the Eagles, but it’s hardly a surprise. If the Eagles really wanted to keep Logan, they could have made a better effort to re-sign him prior to the start of NFL free agency.

Logan, who turns 28 in December, just completed his fourth season with the Eagles. A third-round pick in 2013, he’s proven to be durable, appearing in 59 out of 64 regular-season games and making 51 starts. In 2016, the 6-foot-2, 315-pound Logan started 13 games and made 24 tackles, 2  1/2 sacks and six quarterback hurries. He also played 45.8 percent of the Eagles’ defensive snaps.

The addition of Logan likely signals the end of Dontari Poe’s time with the Chiefs. The Chiefs couldn’t come to an agreement on terms of a multiyear contract with Poe and declined to make him their franchise player. That made Poe a free agent, and he’s taking visits in search of the contract he’s looking for. The Chiefs needed a strong anchor for the middle of their defensive line, which Poe often provided in his five seasons in Kansas City. The Chiefs have three accomplished defensive linemen in addition to Logan: Chris Jones, Allen Bailey and Jaye Howard.

Logan, who signed for just one year, and Howard have contracts that expire at the end of next season. Unless the Chiefs re-sign one or both players, their crowd on the defensive line will thin considerably by this time next year.

Logan is a stiff run defender and space eater in the middle. The No. 38-ranked free agent on Around The NFL's Top 101 list, Logan will provide solid rotational play in the middle of Kansas City's line.

Throughout this offseason, and even before, Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Roseman expressed a desire to bring Logan back. As recently as Friday, Roseman said the Eagles were "hopeful" about bringing Logan back. It just seemed unlikely with their cap situation.

"Daniel has been a very efficient player for us, both on defense and special teams," Chiefs General Manager John Dorsey said. "He’s a relentless worker and a team-first guy. He’s grown each year in our system and I look forward to watching him develop even more as we move forward."
