As the Eagles finish up their first mini camp of the 2013 season, they have announced the signing of 2013 3rd round draft pick, defensive tackle Bennie Logan to a 4-year contract.
Logan (6-2, 309) was named 2012 All-SEC second-team selection by the Associated Press and was a key contributor on one of the nation’s top defensive line units at LSU. The rookie tallied 107 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and five sacks during his three-year career. Logan, 23, appeared in all 13 games (12 starts) as a junior in 2012 and recorded 45 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, two blocked field goals and three pass breakups for a defense that ranked in the top 10 in the country in run defense (9th overall) and total defense (8th overall). And many expect him to make a similar impact on this Eagles defense with the way he is impressing the coaching staff in the early going of these practices.
Logan is the sixth of eight Eagle rookies to lock up a contract. The final two, QB Matt Barkley and 1st round pick T Lane Johnson. At the moment unless there is a major setback, the Eagles are expected to have their entire rookie class suited up as Training Camp approaches.
