Injured last season, ’13 draft pick could improve Philadelphia Eagles’ pass rush

Broken down, the core of the Eagles defensive line is young and promising. With Cedric Thornton and Fletcher Cox on both ends, and a now heavier Bennie Logan in the middle, the front line of the team’s new 3-4 defense is starting to take shape. None of those players are older than 25. After that, there are question marks. Part of this has to do with the scheme. Guys like Vinny...

Fan threatens Eagles player on Twitter by posting a photo of a gun

People don’t realize how powerful Twitter is. Eagles defensive lineman Bennie Logan was promoting his new line of hats and a fan responded by telling him he needs to focus on playing better and that’s when things escalated. The fan then tweeted this photo of his gun.  Not very smart. Logan then apparently called the police.  I would have done the same thing.   Only stupid...

Man Threatens to Shoot Eagles Bennie Logan; Tweets Pic of Gun

Eagles defensive tackle Bennie Logan was embroiled in a brief Twitter exchange with a fan on Tuesday, and it ended with the keyboard gangster making a serious threat with a gun. Logan posted a message asking fans to check out a new line of hats. A fan tweeted that, instead of hawking hats, Logan should be concentrating on improving his play. The back-and-forth escalated from there...

Do the Eagles really need to look elsewhere for a nose tackle?

As free agency approaches, talk around the Philadelphia Eagles is starting to focus on positions of need. On the defensive side, it seems that nearly every position has been mentioned as a position of need. While help with the secondary and pass rush are obvious keys, nose tackle has been cited as a position as well. The Eagles entered 2013 needing a nose tackle for the first time...

Why the Eagles will probably add a run stuffing, gap eating nose tackle in the offseason

The Eagles drafted NT Bennie Logan, a promising LSU product in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. The rookie began the season as a backup to Isaac Sopoaga, but impressed the coaches enough to snatch the starting NT position after only eight games (Sopoaga was shipped to NE for a sixth round pick). Logan is one of the more athletic NT’s in the league, and showed the ability...

Mailbag: On Logan, Kelce’s Wing Bowl chances and more

A special thanks to those who submitted questions for our mailbag this week. This is the last one until the 2014 season rolls around! Is Bennie Logan the permanent answer at nose tackle? – Tim H. from Dresher I would say yes, unless the Eagles are in a position to get a guy they really like. They only guy that I would put in this category is Notre Dame’s Louis Nix, but I think...

Isaac Sopoaga Trade Opens Door For Young Eagles Linemen

Eagles nose tackle Bennie Logan is now officially a starter in the wake of the team trading Isaac Sopoaga Tuesday. Photo courtesy: In spite of him only getting limited snaps for the Philadelphia Eagles this season, the team trading away Isaac Sopoaga to the New England Patriots Tuesday certainly means more opportunities for the team's young defensive linemen.  "...

Eagles Ship Sopoaga to the Patriots

The Eagles have made a move during a relatively boring time leading up to the NFL trade deadline. The Birds dealt the 32-year old nose tackle to the New England Patriots – along with a 6th round pick in the 2014 draft – for a 5th round pick. Not exactly a big turnover in the deal, but not exactly like Sopoaga had much value. Sopoaga was signed by Philadelphia to a 3-year, $12...

Philadelphia Eagles Select Bennie Logan, DL, LSU

3.05 Philadelphia Eagles Bennie Logan, DL, LSU With the 5th pick of the 3rd round the Eagles took Bennie Logan, defensive lineman out of LSU.  Standing at 6-2 and weighing in at 302lbs Logan gives the Eagles a versatile defensive lineman who will be able to line up in multiple alignments in their new 3 man front. I don’t think he starts in year one but he will provide the Eagles...
