NJ Advance Media's Mark Eckel reports the Redskins will target impending free agent NT Bennie Logan if he hits the open market.
The Redskins didn't even have a pure nose tackle this past season, and their run defense suffered greatly because of it. Washington simply rotated linemen across their front, finishing 25th in run-defense DVOA. Logan didn't fit quite as well in DC Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme. He's more of a traditional 3-4 nose and would be an excellent fit with the Redskins. Jan 30 - 11:06 AM

Impending free agent DT Bennie Logan said he would like to stay in Philadelphia, but the ball is in the Eagles' court.

EVP Howie Roseman said the team would "love to keep Bennie around," but like Extreme, Logan wants more than words. "It’s cool to say that and all, but there’s got to be some action behind the talking," said Logan. "I would like to be here, it would be a good thing to be here, but some things are just out of my power, you know?" Logan rarely makes a splash on the stat sheet, but he is a quality run defender. He should receive plenty of interest if he hits the open market.

Eagles DT Bennie Logan (groin) is active for Week 10 against the Falcons.

Logan has been sidelined since Week 6 with a groin injury. His return comes at a great time with the Falcons in town. Logan should help solidify what has become a leaky run defense.

Eagles DT Bennie Logan (groin) is practicing fully for Week 10.

It's an upgrade from last week when Logan was limited at practice. He's on track to return Sunday versus the Falcons. Logan hasn't played since straining his groin in Week 6.
Wed, Nov 9, 2016 06:34:00 PM

Eagles DT Bennie Logan (groin) has been downgraded to out for Week 9 against the Giants.

Logan was originally listed as questionable. It is a bit of a surprise after he got in three limited practices this week. The Eagles will be thin on the defensive line with DT Taylor Hart (ankle) was downgraded to out as well.

Eagles declared NT Bennie Logan, OL Josh Andrews, LB Kamu Grugier-Hill, OL Dillon Gordon, WR Bryce Treggs, OL Isaac Seumalo, and DT Taylor Hart inactive for Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Beau Allen will make another start at nose tackle. Outside of Logan, the Eagles are healthy going into Sunday night.

Eagles NT Bennie Logan (groin) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Logan anchors the Eagles' run defense, so this is a big boost to Ezekiel Elliott's stock. Despite the Eagles' success on defense, Zeke is a locked-in RB1.

Eagles declared DT Bennie Logan (groin), WR Bryce Treggs, S Terrence Brooks, CB C.J. Smith, OL Josh Andrews, OL Dillon Gordon, and OL Isaac Seumalo inactive for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Logan is the only one sitting out due to injury. Beau Allen should see more snaps with Logan sidelined.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 11:31:00 AM

Eagles DT Bennie Logan is week to week with a strained groin.

It is a tough blow for a run defense which is suddenly struggling. Beau Allen should see more snaps with Logan sidelined.
Mon, Oct 17, 2016 12:09:00 PM

Eagles DT Bennie Logan (calf) is active for Week 5 against the Lions.

Logan was listed as questionable and was the only player on the Eagles' injury report. Coming out of the bye, the Eagles declared WR Bryce Treggs, S Terrence Brooks, DE Steven Means, C Josh Andrews, OT Dillon Gordon, OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai, and OG Isaac Seumalo inactive.
Sun, Oct 9, 2016 11:36:00 AM

Eagles placed NT Bennie Logan (calf) on injured reserve.

Logan was already ruled out for Sunday's finale. He had 55 tackles, nine TFLs, and one sack in 14 games, grading as PFF's No. 11 run stopper. Beau Allen will start in Logan's place.
Sat, Jan 2, 2016 03:30:00 PM

Eagles NT Bennie Logan could miss the rest of the season with a calf injury.

The injury must have happened in Sunday's loss to Arizona. Logan has been a solid run defender this year and won't be easy to replace. Beau Allen is next up on the depth chart at nose tackle.
Tue, Dec 22, 2015 07:59:00 PM

Eagles NT Bennie Logan (knee, questionable) was added to the injury report on Sunday.

He could be a game-time decision. Logan owns PFF's 12th-highest defensive tackle grade out of 67 qualifiers. Beau Allen would start at nose tackle if Logan is forced to sit against New England.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 09:40:00 AM

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said NT Bennie Logan "may be playing as well as anybody on our defensive line right now."

Considering the other members of the defensive line are Fletcher Cox and Cedric Thornton, that is high praise indeed. The Eagles' stout defensive line anchors one of the best front sevens in the league. Philadelphia should be difficult to run on this season.
Mon, Sep 7, 2015 08:09:00 AM

Eagles NT Bennie Logan led all defensive tackles in solo tackles last season with 44.

Also from Pro Football Focus, Logan was second among 81 qualifying defensive tackles in solo stops (solo tackles that constitute an offensive failure). The tackle stat has become mostly meaningless in the football world, so these numbers give us a better idea. The Eagles' run defense allowed just 3.7 YPC last season (fourth in the NFL), and Philly was one of four teams not to allow a 40-yard run.
