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 »
