Report: Chiefs, former Eagles DT Bennie Logan agree to one-year deal

(USA TODAY Sports)

The Kansas City Chiefs and former Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Bennie Logan have agreed on a one-year deal, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

‘Logan fills the expected void left by Dontari Poe, who is currently making visits to other teams. He is meeting with the Jaguars on Monday after visiting the Colts on Sunday. He is next scheduled to visit the Falcons.

The Chiefs decided against using the franchise tag on Poe despite having the option to do so after signing safety Eric Berry to a long-term contract.

Logan, 27, is a strong, athletic defensive tackle who is above average against the run and has a knack for penetrating into the backfield to create havoc. Appearing in 13 games last season, Logan, who missed time with a groin injury, finished with five tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, nine hurries and two forced fumbles.

Paired with Fletcher Cox, Logan formed a formidable duo at tackle since he was drafted in the third round out of LSU in 2013. While the Eagles had interest in keeping them together, it became difficult financially after the team gave a six-year, $102.6 million deal to Cox last June.

Logan appeared in 59 out of a possible 64 games during his four years with the Eagles, posting 163 tackles (45 for loss) and 5.5 sacks over that time.
