Are we certain Bennie Logan wont be back?
It would take a lot of doing, but don’t count Bennie Logan‘s return to the Philadelphia Eagles out yet. There’s a slim possibility that Logan could return to the Eagles’ nest, and he could do so at a discount.
Two of the most exciting days in the calendar year for an NFL fan are the first two days of the free agency period. Splash signings are made. A ton of money is thrown around at breakneck speed. There are always surprises.

The NFL Market:
There’s another side of that same coin. Occasionally, players are allowed to “test their own market”. That’s done for two reasons. Teams are either legitimately allowing players to find a suitor, or they’re trying to prove to the player that their market isn’t what they believe it to be.
Now, the Eagles never used that term in reference to Logan. Truthfully, all we’ve ever heard from the Novacare Complex is the fact that the Eagles want him to be on their team. We also know it may come down to money, and the Eagles just don’t have enough to give him a huge deal.
The thing is they may not have to.
What lies ahead:
Now that the first few days of free agency are over, we’re basically back to where we started. Not much is happening. There are a ton of huge names that are still available.
Young stars that we thought would garner interest aren’t getting a lot of calls. They still might, but when they do, one or two things will happen. They’re either going to sign for less money than you thought, or they’re going to stay put and stay in familiar surroundings (at a discount).
Chase Daniel is all but gone, and the Ryan Mathews situation is still up in the air. The Eagles still have a chance at freeing up more money. If signing Logan is still in the cards, they may be able to do so, even if it’s in the eleventh hour and for less money than we originally thought.
We ask that every fan of this team keeps their fingers crossed.
