Bennie Logan has a new team.
Logan has agreed to a one-year deal to join the Kansas City Chiefs, a league source confirmed to CSNPhilly.com. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news.
Logan, 27, was drafted by the Eagles in the third round in 2013 and has played both nose tackle in a 3-4 and as a 4-3 defensive tackle. In Kansas City, he'll replace Dontari Poe as the Chiefs' nose tackle.
After being drafted out of LSU, Logan spent the last four seasons in Philadelphia. In 2016, he played 46 percent of the team's defensive snaps. He missed three games in the middle of the season. Logan played in 55 games and started 51 with the Eagles.

With Logan gone and after cutting Connor Barwin, the Eagles will have two new starters on their defensive line in 2017.
Throughout this offseason, and even before, Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Roseman expressed a desire to bring Logan back. As recently as Friday, Roseman said the Eagles were "hopeful" about bringing Logan back. It just seemed unlikely with their cap situation.
Sources confirmed a couple weeks ago that the Eagles had begun contract negotiations to extend defensive tackle Beau Allen, who will now be the guy to replace Logan in the starting lineup, barring another change.
With Taylor Hart's switch to offensive tackle, the Eagles are pretty light at defensive tackle. They still have two undrafted tackles from last year -- Destiny Vaeao, Aziz Shittu -- on their roster.
