Chiefs Sign DT Bennie Logan To One-Year, $8M Deal

Jason Ashworth is reporting that the Chiefs are signing former Eagles DT Bennie Logan to a one-year contract on Monday. According to Ashworth, Logan was visiting with the team today.

  • Tom Pelissero reports that Logan receives a one-year, $8 million contract from the Chiefs that includes $7.68million guaranteed.

Logan previously met with the Redskins, but left Washington without a contract.

It’s clear now that the Chiefs are moving on from Dontari Poe, and Logan will be his replacement for the 2017 season.

The defensive tackle market has been pretty slow-moving up to this point, but with Logan now off the board and Poe meeting with a number of teams, it’s possible that things could begin to fall into place in the near future.

Logan, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Eagles back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $3.032 million contract and made a base salary of $745,500 for the 2017 season.

In 2016, Logan has appeared in 13 games and recorded 24 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 86 interior defensive lineman out of 127 qualifying players.
