The Eagles have a fourth starting spot on defense that they have to replace in 2017 as defensive tackle Bennie Logan agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.
A former third-round pick in 2013, Logan was a dependable player with 51 career starts on his résumé. He was a nose tackle in the Eagles' 3-4 scheme from 2013-15, which is the Chiefs' base defense. Stout against the run, Logan had expressed interest in returning to the Eagles, but wanted to seek what he could get on the open market. Logan visited with Washington over the weekend before ultimately joining Kansas City.
In addition to Logan, the Eagles released defensive end Connor Barwin and cornerback Leodis McKelvin. Cornerback Nolan Carroll agreed to terms on a three-year deal with Dallas over the weekend.
