When Howie Roseman went on his spending spree last offseason, he locked up the Eagles’ first two picks in the 2013 draft — Lane Johnson and Zach Ertz. But as the months progressed, it became increasingly clear that signing their third pick in that draft, Bennie Logan, was not a priority.
Now, if the Birds want to keep the 27-year-old defensive tackle who is set to become a free agent this offseason, they may have to open up their wallets even more.
“I think some of the Eagles’ recent contracts, which have been a bit more optimistic about the future potential of their players, will have Logan looking for a big number if he is to bypass free agency to stick with Philly,” Over The Cap’s Jason Fitzgerald told Birds 24/7. “That means looking for Tyrone Crawford/Damon Harrison money in the $9 million per year range, but my feeling is that his market value likely will fall in the $5.75-6.75 million per year range.” Read more »
Some position-by-position thoughts on the Eagles’ defense after watching the All-22 coaches film from their 24-15 win over the Falcons:
*Jim Schwartz turned in another terrific game calling the shots, and while the Eagles have plenty of talent on defense, he’s a big reason the Birds rank third in the NFL in points per game allowed, sixth in yards per game allowed and sixth in takeaways. Against Atlanta, Schwartz’s unit held the Falcons to season lows in points (15), yards (303), first downs (11), offensive plays (48) and time of possession (21:50). Before the game on Sunday, Atlanta ranked first in the NFL in points per game (33.9) and second in the league in yards per game (429.2). Read more »

After the Eagles’ 28-23 loss to the Giants on Sunday, Leodis McKelvin noted his hamstring prevented him from running at his top speed. After practice on Wednesday, he added that it may bother him for the rest of this season.
“I’m probably going to deal with this shit for the rest of this year, unless it just magically disappears,” McKelvin said. “It’s going to be a struggle. It’s just something I’m going to have to deal with if I want to continue to go out there and play. I got to be more technically sound whenever I’m out there. A lot of guys go through injuries. A lot of guys play through injuries, so that’s just my case.” Read more »
