Redskins Free Agent Rumors: Bennie Logan, Cordarrelle Patterson Being Targeted
Bennie Logan Could Be An Option
Shortly after the end point of the 2016 NFL season, the Redskins were rumored to have interest in Bennie Logan. The talented run stuffer was coming off of a down year for the divisional rival Eagles, but he still has the ability to function as a strong nose tackle. Had he not been dogged by injuries, he could have demanded a bigger contract and may have been higher on the list of priorities for many franchises.
However, as it stands it appears that Logan is searching to sign a one year deal. That is according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who also reported the Redskins interest as recent as Friday night:
If the Redskins are able to land Logan on a one year deal, that would be an excellent move. Logan would instantly be their top player on the defensive line, and he and new additions Terrell McClain and Stacy McGee should be able to greatly improve the team’s run defense. Granted, the latter two were overpaid but they are still solid run defenders.
Also adding to the benefits would be the fact that the Eagles would miss out on Logan. Poaching a player from a divisional rival often pays off, and the Redskins would strengthen their roster by weakening that of the Eagles. And getting a one year deal would be a huge, no risk, high reward proposition. If that is on that table for Logan, the Redskins must take advantage of it.
